Apparently they have been putting metal siding over top of the concrete.

There are still a few sections showing the old concrete facade.

Oh awesome! Thanks for sharing this.I had no idea what they were doing up there and it was bugging the hell out of me. This should probably get moved to reclads. I'll miss the variety that the green brought, but the quality of the new cladding appears far superior. It'll looks like a totally different building once it's done. I hope the podium is going to get to share in the love eventually too.

Looks to me like it's in the Reclads section already.

Edit: nm, it looks like it must have been moved.

Is Palliser Square ever going to get reclad? When they built Palliser South (Bell building), they also proposed two towers flanking the Calgary Tower and a reclad of the old Palliser Square. The exterior of that building is literally crumbling as they have a green net in the corners.

Much better than mine. I just snapped mine quickly while waiting at a red light (I know, I know, I shouldn't be doing that, but it was a long light).

I am curious to see what, if any, changes they will do at grade.

The new cladding is a cheap aluminum skin. It's a cheap cover up instead of repairing, rebuilding or reinventing. It only looks better because it's new. I didn't really care for the green. The new colours will make the tower look like everything else.

I'm liking how the lobby renovation on Encana Place is turning out. Ditching the fogged glass was a good call and I like the rust coloured embellishments that they're adding. It's much better in keeping with the colour and texture of the building as it is.

It kinda makes me wonder what it might look like if they extended the motif to the rest of the tower. :rolleyes: It would look quite gothic.
