oy vei, 1AJS thats the best you can do?....you are embarassing us man....what about exelsior and strand on waterfront, place joseph royale on provencher, the manitoba hydro office tower, the pharmacy building, the seimens institute and canadinns tower, the humane society, the new airport for goodness sake.

you have pictures of most of those...i know you just took those pictures today, but the first one isnt even a construction site.

I think most of us are sitting on the fence right now. No doubt it is a great looking building. From some angles it looks really dark and in others it looks really light. The base is also only starting to form up. I think what will make this project is the (White?) LED strip on the corner of 3rd Street and 6th Avenue SW.

Uh, the LED strip has also changed since the night rendering was made. It now has this criss-crossing pattern instead of just being a pole.

Here's a look so far:

VANMAN, Shangri-La is going to be huge, not 100% sold on the glass but I'm sure it'll all come together in the end.

caltrane74 Jan 24, 2007 4:23 PM

I'm lovin' Shanghri-La, and technically its the tallest building under construction in Canada until B-A has a foundation.

Here are some pics of the Shangri-La from a couple weeks ago. You can see a few of the solar charged light tiles installed that will run along the two street facing sides of the tower. In these pictures there are 2 installed but at the moment there are more like 15.

Shangri-La is coming along really well - I was actually there on Saturday but without a camera so thanks.

Here are a couple of additional pics of Calgary sites at very different points in the construction phase (they're actually from this morning).

The glass in the middle seems to be of a different colour in this light - I guess it might always look different as it's all windows and no blanked out floors.

theres other projects around town but agian no time to get any pics being the sun is setting when i fin work.... and being the bus is my mode of transport not worth it to take night shots of construction.......

WhipperSnapper Jan 25, 2007 12:25 AM

can't believe Shangri-la will be 600 feet tall - talk about point tower

also can't believe how fast the pit is growing for Centennial - where does the fill go?

That square is going to be so bloody bright when the ads go up, it'll be a cool spot at night. And is it just me or does Centennial place not resemble Bay and Adelaides last design?

Holy crap! A crane in Winnipeg! Lived in Manitoba for a total of 16 years and never saw one.....

alps Jan 26, 2007 2:48 AM

Here's a picture Haliguy posted of a new crane put up across from the Commons yesterday, on the site of the "Armoury Square" condo building (10 stories). Behind it, in the background, you can see the new Gladstone Ridge tower (12 stories, under construction), which will soon get an identical twin.
