Add about 5-6 floors and get this baby up to 750'! Don't think there would be a problem with Shadowing BS.

I honestly don't mind this tower, it's unique in it's own way and also quite tall. To have this, 3EC, CCC1&CCC2, Eau Claire Development, Jamieson Place, Canterra, and Centennial all within mere blocks of each other.... Wow.

..... Can't forget the 7-tower proposal either..... Any further proposals in this area and we're just getting spoiled. Very welcomed though!! Ones like these are just icing on the cake

Edit: All those towers listed (atleast first phase of Eau Claire development) are 160m+ and all within blocks of one another... That would just be surreal.

Add one or two more and at least get it into Club 700 I wonder if Lacaille is going to get going on this once Vogue is finished or close to being finished?

If it ever got built that is. I'm not overly optimistic this one will.

I didn't like this one a couple years ago and I still don't like it now. Way too busy of a design. Yuck.

I'm skeptical that this will get going anytime soon given La Caille took forever to start construction on Vogue.

Agree with Boris, a bit too busy of a design for my taste.

If this get's approved, and if it has the financing.... you can bet (and I've it before), Kings will get re-designed! Really don't think it'll be built as it looks now! IMO

I'm sure it will see some re-design, that's a given, considering how long this design has been around.

Vogue is already a pretty large project for La Caille to be taking on, so I suspect this one won't get going until Vogue is done in a few years.

Agreed. Nothing will happen until Vogues is done. Maybe some re-design and fiddling, and possibly some permit stuff, but not much else.

It has already been redesigned. I would take this vision over the previous one by a long shot.

I'm interested to see what happens with this one. I wouldn't expect to see anything happen, but after Vogue came out of now where who knows? Some of the folks on SSP don't like LaCaille and the style of buildings they've built, but at least they get their developments done, which leads me to believe we might actually see this get built.

I'm not so sure though Surreal. This is a very super luxe development, and I'm not sure that Calgary has that big of a market for skyscraper super luxe developments like that. WE certainly have the market for it in SFH format, but not in a high rise I don't think.

http://www.kingsonfourth.com/

Highlights of the project, courtesy of H.E.Pennypacker:

- Not much ground level retail beyond a coffee bar - but given that there needs to be separate office/residential/hotel lobbies so it's fine

- The second level features a restaurant, retail space connected to the +15

- Third floor contains meeting rooms and a ball room while the fourth floor contains a pool/spa area and fitness room (probably for all users of the building)

- Levels 5-14 are a 50/50 split of office and hotel rooms; 15-25 is all office; 26-46 is all residential; finally there is a rooftop garden on half of the 47th floor
This deserves a bump. I wonder if there have been any changes.

I thought it might be dead, but glad to see it's moving forward with the DP!
If completed, that will be another 245 hotel and residential units in Eau Claire (~300 population), around 300 000 sqft office (just a guess - probably around 2000+ employees), and new restaurants and services - quite a boon to an area that is ready to welcome:
- ECT (613 000 sqft - last I saw, I think they were on the 3rd or 4th floor)
- City Centre I (820 000 sqft office; 30 000 sqft retail - to be complete by the end of 2015
- ever-expanding Anthem Waterfront, with nearly completed Outlook

And proposed:
- Disco Stu's shoes.. er, I mean Concord - 105 units
- more phases at CC
- more phases at Outlook
- Eau Claire Redevelopment (600,000 GSF of retail, 800,000 GSF of class A office, 775,000 high quality residential, 275,000 GSF/250 - room luxury hotel)
- 7 tower 2-block project

There is hardly any surface parking that is not spoken for!

All I can say is that if La Caille can get Vogue above grade, I'll have confidence that KOF is just around the corner! Also, I haven't checked in a while, but I've also noticed their website has been improved.
