It's been a couple of months since our last write up on Curtis Block. Back in early January the two tower development hit a new milestone when cladding installation began. Since that time progress has been steady if not rapid, with the north tower climbing approximately a floor a week going from 18 to 27 floors, and the south tower rising from 12 floors, to 20 floors.
Aerial shots show the towers are now a fixture in the the Beltline's east Skyline, even though they still have many floors to go before completion. The north tower still has 11 more floors to go until it levels off on the 37th floor. Recent photos also show exterior cladding installation is making great progress, with cladding fished up to the 8th level.
Developed by One Properties, the two towers under construction make up the first phase, while a third tower is to be constructed later in the second phase. Once completed the three tower project, designed by Arquitectonica, and Dialog will boast 958 purpose built rental units, andf street level retail. All those extra units, combined with the new retail on both 12th and 13th avenues, will provide a nice addition to area that has been steadily improving and evolving.
SkyriseCalgary will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file, for photo updates and discussion check out the related Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
