Skygardens

Post some pictures of buildings with skygardens. The buildings don't have to be built, they can also be approved/proposed/under construction, on hold or whatever you like. Just don't post a billion photos in each reply please.

The approved Shangri La Hotel in Toronto will have a skygarden on the top floor.

The Bow here in Calgary will have 3 seperate levels of skygardens in its atrium (which stretches the entire length of the building's southwest face all the way from top to bottom).

This is somewhat similar to the green roof schemes :

Purpose is to insulate the building so heating / cooling bills can come down.

Calgary has such a garden as well in a skyscraper complex, but it's at a lower level a few stories above the street. Devonian Gardens is a nice oasis with waterfalls, ponds, trees, flowers, and benches so office workers can have a picnic during lunch.
