Bow seems to be stealing a lot of its thunder. This is only 3 metres shorter than Calgary's current tallest, but will sit in 3rd when it's all said and done.

Calgary seems intent on being #1 in the west, Vancouver better get moving.

That's a very interesting perspective! Which revenue stream will run out first? Calgary has better long term fundamentals, but Vancouver's run out of land. It's going to be an exciting race.

Calgary has quite a lot on the plate. While Vancouver can be a major tourism centre, so can Calgary due to the proximity to the Rockies. In fact, AC just announced new flights to Tokyo!

We shall use our imagination in the meantime, it must be way too cold to go outside, either too unheard to go around with a camera and make pics or perhaps not that many skyscraper enthousiasts living in Calgary who can make more pics.

Let's move there so we can change the place ourselves to the best.

Awesome!!! WOW now we can really see how much impact these new projects have so far had on the city which is truly thrilling and sure exciting.
I once said that CGL has a new leading role on world stage that will reach far beyond Houston or Dallas or even Denver and now you all can see I was not joking.
I knew and you bet this is just the beginning.
Someday this city will be the very first city in entire Cabada to start building a 80 storey skyscraper and become THE place to be for all free spirited souls out there but also too expensive to cope with which sure attracts and allows only those who matter to come in and stay.
We shall celebrate the birth of the Dubai of North of this new decade & sure I ll be part of it's growth.
All hail to Calgary!

Once all this is (near) finished, hopefully one will start building a new stadium too. IF hopefully someday again, Winter Olympics come to Calgary. (regarding the ever growing effects of climate change and global warming, it won't surprise me if the olympic games only can be played either in Canada or Japan or some Scandinavian countries from now on)
