Very cool, unique and also reasonably high skyscraper for Calgary. Great stuff
But i see a few (chubby) towers in the skyline that could do with a reclad

That new energy company HQ you're getting in Oklahoma City looks great too. Devon Energy? There are a number of similarities between the 2 cities. They're both on the plains/prairie, both have big energy industries, and both about the same population.

Seriously, why can't more cities be like Calgary? This place looks awesome! All it needs is a warmer location.

Yeah I agree with you,there are alot of similarities between the two,except Calgary is more modern, and has better Downtown transportation,and it's skyline rivals some cities in America with 3-4 times as much population!Calgary's skyline is Canada's 3rd best skyline and it's growing!

Wow.. Calgary's looking amazing. When this is complete the skyline will look almost complete, has a few peaks here and there with a dense center. Keep it up CGY.

From up here, Calgary looks incredebly poor on streetlevel... Big buildings on square plots. Very boring from a human point of view...

(The Bow promises to be a very nice building though!)

downtown has many parts with lots of trees. you are looking at one of the places that does not. i am sure all cities have such places. also they have had a late spring. and it apears much less green than usaul.

What does 940.11" mean? Do you mean British Imperial measurements of feet and inches?

Scientists predict that global warming may increase the average temperature in this part of Canada by as many as 4-5 degrees centigrade.
