South on Centre Street, with the ever-shrinking Calgary Tower in the background.



The glass is really coming along. Staircase zig-zagging on the left of the building.



The other side of the building, facing the sun. Looking forward to seeing what the transparent glass will look like when it's on.

It's just so refreshingly modern after all the faux-history they have in their bank towers.

wow! thanks for sharing Ukraine... it looks indeed amazing!

A second tower??? where? where? ... oh that will be just magnificent to have a second one.

What I was also thinking? what if they build a tower, a Cilinder shaped tall skyscraper of some 70 storey's right in front or in between the curves of the Bow!? that could be awesome right?
