Telus announces plans for 58-storey tower in downtown Calgary (with video)

CALGARY — Telus is planning to build a $400-million, 58-storey, 750,000 square-foot tower at the site of the current Art Central building, it was announced Thursday.

Art Central, located at 100 7th Ave. S.W., will be demolished to make room for Telus Sky, which the company says will transform Calgary’s skyline with “an architectural marvel, creating a dynamic community of blended urban living and working.” Telus says it will transform the entire 7th Avenue block into “one of the most technologically innovative and environmentally-friendly sites” in North America.

It will include the first 26 floors of office space and 32 upper floors, comprising 341 residential units.

9/10... really ambitious and different, thankfully NOT boxy or boring at all. Just wish it was a couple hundred feet taller, at least. It shouldn't be shorter than the Bow Tower, being so dazzling and dynamic. Otherwise a gorgeous gem for the Calgary skyline, definitely an iconic tower in the making.

It looks great as is, but some more height would make it look even better in relation to it's neighbors. Slip in a few more office floors at the bottom, and a few more residential on top.
