Another project in Calgary's Beltline neighborhood has broken grade shortly after Redstone, which also rose above grade recently. 11th + 11th has been flying under the radar at SkyriseCalgary since last September when we covered the installation of the site's tower crane, but recent photos reveal the site is ready to make its mark, as it is now above grade.
Over the past several months all of the work at 11th + 11th has been on the underground parkade portion of the project, with no noticeable change to the casual passerby. Now with the project above grade, the structure's progress will be seen by many, and eventually the 44 storey tower will make its way into the skyline and will be noticeable from most parts of the city. Developed by Vancouver based Intergulf Development Group, the building will be home to 369 units as well as retail space at ground level facing 12th Avenue. With the development eventually becoming home to approximately 500 people, 11th + 11th will be a significant density boost to the area and Calgary's core in general.
Designed by Ramsay Worden Architects, the tower will be tall and slender, with glass making up the majority of the exterior. One of the notable features of the design, is the south face of the building being angled rather than parallel to the street. This should give the building some interesting reflections for those looking at it from the southwest.
With plenty yet to come for 11th + 11th, SkyriseCalgary will be sure to return to 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
