Upon completion this will instantly be the nicest skycraper between Vancouver and Toronto (in my humble opinion). King, or Queen, of the Praries.

Depending on execution, the Bow might be one of the, if not the best, skyscraper in the country.

What I find bizarre is how Calgary goes from high end massive office tower to a natural landscape in literally a few blocks. Just in the distance you can almost envision the frontier by looking at that river and wood lands. What gets me is that you know that landscape just goes on forever and ever. It really is a wilderness out there.

Beautiful looking tower. I love how the footprint is immediately identifiable on the ground too.
