It's just wishful thinking on my part that Imperial Oil will build a new tower. Suncor just bought Petro Canada, so maybe they will eventually build new digs. Once again, it's just a prognostication based on hope, than anything else.

The Bow will be Calgary's tallest building.

The original bow proposal was 303m but Calgary has forced them the lower the height.
Isn't there a rule on this forum over making stuff up?


Suncor is loaded with sublease space after buying Petro Canada and canning several thousand jobs. They ain't building anything for the forseeable future.

Calgary will be sooo overbuilt once this boom is completed. Expect more takeovers and more sublet space hitting the market and don't expect anything significant to be built for at least 10+ years. Also expect the continuing shift towards more efficient open floor plans for backroom offices of the larger corporations further allieviating the need for additional space.

I also think the 303 metre thing was just a wishful thinking rumour. I cannot imagine Calgary turning down a supertall over a shadow on a trail issue.

The Bow has gone through a height reduction, but I can't remember what the original height was supposed to be.

I'm not denying the shadowing bylaw. I'm well aware of it. I'm denying that the Bow was ever seriously considered as 303 metres tall. It's just an "urban" legend such as the 1000 foot Manulife tower in Toronto.

Somewhere around 250m.

I was searching for The BOW online, and came upon, what looks like an updated Sequencing Diagram!
Structure expected to be completed in a 1 year 1/2

but if you look closely at the pictures of the very first page, you can see atriums with trees planted in as well. Nowadays there are more of these so called " Green Projects" ongoing elsewhere which is surely a good idea. I thought that the Bow is amongst them.

They changed the design...The trees aren't the only addition that makes the Bow a green structure and to be honest im happy that this building isn't a jungle anymore (imagine how much upkeep would it take!)...Its design,The materials used, special technology that saves energy and water therefore i cannot approve saying that the bow isn't green anymore
Have a good day
