Thanks for the update. This is really starting to dominate the calgary skyline now. Not sure if that's such a good thing though.

That is true... What if sometime in future, somebody, some great architect comes with this brilliant idea to build a cilinder shape skyscraper right in front of the inner bow of The Bow and with some 15 storey's taller at least?

A building like " The Westin Atlanta" hotel I mean .. can be awesome though

Oh wow!!! Dubai, you did truly take some time to surprise all of us, at least those like me who visit this page :-)

WOW, I love the last picture, look at the density and I can tell that with a bit of luck, the EAP will also soon be visible in this view!

Oh I wish they would sometime soon start building Herald Square too

ps. somehow The Bow look so huge and bulky when compared with other buildings as if it wants to make a strong statement, like " hey, look at me, I am bigger, better stronger" lol

Wow. I had no clue this was being built in Calgary. I haven't been on the forums much though. It's beautiful!

Amazing skyline. All it needs is a supertall in the middle of that skyline and presto, a skyscraper city is born.

I wish to see 60+ floors in the city sometime soon. All we can do now is to wish and pray for somebody to come and build the city one or two 60+ skyscrapers.
