Is this area south of the tracks where Calgarian night life happens? I found north of the tracks very corporate to the exclusion of almost everything else. Toronto's CBD is a little like that but becoming more mixed use with residential, retail, and restaurants springing up.

That is 100% the case. There is really nothing in the CBD (north of the tracks) except office buildings. Stephen ave has restaurants, etc.. but all of the night life is south of the tracks.

How about some Edmonton? Slightly dated pic but shows how sprawling and dense the skyline is despite the lack of height
