Challenge

Our client wanted a cohesive identity for three physically connected yet aesthetically unrelated buildings in the heart of Calgary’s business district. Intuitive accessibility to upper levels 3 and 4 led to chronic tenant vacancies. As a result, while residential and office tower density was increasing, central growth stagnated.

Solution

We began by improving sightlines across all levels to increase retailer visibility. We relocated escalators, widened concourses, opened floor slabs and added a glass pedestrian bridge to link opposite sides of the property. We also removed a range of obstacles to reveal the full splendour of an expansive upper-level garden.

Result

An ambitious urban renewal project sees previously disjointed entities integrated into a single multiuse complex. Under a canopy of structural glass, visitors revel in a vibrant streetscape awash with natural light, with soaring 1.5 storey façades and a progression of dynamic storefronts – a visually rich and immersive retail experience.
