It's definitely had its effect. Right now it seems like people are taking the view of glass half empty or glass half full.I was actually wondering if the slow down in the oil industry was felt in the real estate industry in Calgary and if so, how hard?
Wasn't this initially rumoured to be the new tallest? Given the trouble with oil these days I'm not surprised that it was shortened but the proportions aren't as elegant now.
Thanks, @Surrealplaces. I guess the population growth is a sign that Calgary is an attractive place, and it certainly boosts other sectors of the economy, such as real estate. Or at least keeps it going OK.
Anyhow, the chances for such a big office tower to be built very soon seem limited, from what I understand.
I Didn't Know about this Project at All.. The only way I found out about it was
threw this Site a few Months back At the time i read that there was a project on Hold 64 Floors High. No Renderings etc It Might B a Few Years B 4 Anything Gets Built. In all Fairness Its a Project I can GO WITH. Not Sure Who Would B a Lead Tennant but it Would B Interesting to See,Great Project?
You Bet! It Would B a Dam Good Boost to the Commercial Economy of Calgary. Tnx.
Me too. Already too many office towers downtown IMO. Mixed use with office would be okay as well, just no more office only towers.They should probably scrap the whole office concept and do the righteous by building a 62 storey mixed-use hotel/residential tower. I personally don't wanna see anymore office towers going up in our Downtown unless they're going to be architecturally high standard like Telus Sky.
Lucky(ish) for all of us, it'll take a generation (if ever) to require new buildings of this scale again. We can double our population while building nothing and still be comparable to Toronto in office square feet per person. Small scale or innovative designs are definitely possible, but the age of big-floor corporate towers in Calgary is over.Me too. Already too many office towers downtown IMO.
