Looking better and better everyday! I hope some new similarly high quality projects are in the pipeline (no pun intended) for Calgary.

Probably my second favourite building in Canada after Absolute World. Looks great on the Calgary skyline.

Have the gone on with the pod-like planters inside the building? The atrium interior reminded me of the Shanghai Tower plan, I just can't seem to see it in these pics.
