Calgary's Beltline neighborhood shows no sign of slowing down as yet another residential high-rise is going ahead. Caisson drilling equipment recently arrived onto the site of Redstone, a 14-storey, 137-unit residential tower, developed by Vancouver based Amble Ventures. Redstone is Amble Ventures' second Beltline project coming shortly after completing the near identical 1215 tower just over a year ago.

The NORR Architects-designed tower is the third high-rise residential project to break ground in the Beltline in the last twelve months. Despite the lagging economy, the Beltline continues to see strong population growth. The tower is also the latest in the trend of purpose-built residential towers, following, 500 Block, Curtis Block, and 11th + 11th, all of which are currently under construction. The 5 projects combined will add a whopping 1,600 rental units to the Beltline.

The Caisson drilling unit will continue to drill in preparation for installation of the piles, with shoring and excavation to follow. 

SkyriseCalgary will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
