Thanks for the posting this. It's a nice opportunity to check out a cool building!Hi Skyrise Calgary! Thank you for the kind words and constructive feedback on Dominion - we've referred to these photos more than a few times when discussing finishing details.
We're reaching out because as much attention as the exterior architecture is getting, there's interior features and design ideas that are also interesting and relevant to those passionate about buildings.
The purpose of this post is to offer you a hard hat tour of Dominion at 2pm on either March 18th or 25th before we open to the public. This tour will be led by the construction team, so this won't be a sales pitch with brochures, registration cards, price lists, etc.. The content will be relevant to those active in the design and construction of purpose-built market rental buildings. If this is not you, we would be happy to share information about leasing etc. but we ask that you connect with our leasing team (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Tours should be about 30-45 mins and if you'd like to join us, please email email@example.com
Ps: please bring your own PPE appropriate for an active site.
Yep! Disclaimer is that my background is not in construction and I went on this tour to learn more about the inner workings of construction - But here it goes: Super bright, vibrant and surprisingly open building on the inside. Bucci's really pushing for the European feel of communal living, which I think will be eaten up by North American living. Starting from the lobby up, they'll have 2 lobbies, one for each of their towers, but the main lobby, with the most space, etc. will be in the first tower - The main theme I would say for Dominion is communal living, and you feel that as soon as you enter Dominion. They have chairs set up in the lobby, music playing, they even have water taps. Essentially they're trying to make the building as inviting as possible from the get-go. They've really implemented technology into the building, from touchless entry to a 'Luxer' system for your Amazon deliveries. The units are a little smaller than average I would say, but loaded with high-quality appliances and a LARGE wrap-around balcony. I always appreciate spacious and bright common areas, and that's what Bucci pushed on this one. What makes up for the units is the communal spaces - they have a good-sized area allocated to office work, even including a sound-proof room for sensitive calls, etc. They also have a "TV room," which will have an 85" TV, couches, surround sound, the whole gambit. Behind the TV room is a really nice communal kitchen - they didn't have the "living room" set up, but it's a large and open space, fitted with everything needed for a kitchen: oven, 2 stoves, large island, etc. Just beyond that is their $140,000 gym, which has natural skylight, again falling into that open and vibrant feel.Did anyone go on the construction tour yesterday?
