This tower totally inspired a design in Toronto. I'll try and find it

Those are some deep excavations. What exactly are the parking requirements in Vancouver?

Tom Condos on a foggy night in Montreal. Technically not quite complete, but it's slowly getting there.

Video promoting the Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat festival from last weekend.

Good shots of the Icon in the video, best one at the 2:45 mark. Claridge doing a pretty good job on this one.

Video Link


Check out first page of the Icon thread to compare with the renderings.

Lots of Calgary construction, seems odd as their market has lots of unsold units and downward price pressure. Were these developments mostly underway before the downtown, or were they newly proposed since? Just curious, if the developers are launching new projects amid slow sales and price softness that would be odd...

Yeah man, this building starts at $1 million, and the most expensive unit I've seen in it is 8 million. Might be the most expensive building in the province, likely.

Condo sales are low, but so are rental vacancy rates. Most of the residential construction we are seeing is rental. But yeah, even still the amount of activity we are seeing, especially with low/mid-rise stuff is quite an anomaly. I'm not sure on exact numbers, but I would guess as far as mid-rise (4 to 10 storeys) construction goes, we might be back up to near parity with the numbers we were seeing in the megaboom days of 2013/14. We've got at least another two skyscrapers starting construction this year, and a ton already underway that wasn't in my update.

The Downtown Calgary wall is going to look longer once all of those projects are complete. All of those people moving into the core should be good for adding activity.

Most definitely, the Beltline alone increased in population by 1800 people in the 12 months between April 2017/2018, I believe this is their largest yoy growth ever, and all of Calgary's inner city neighbourhoods are now back to their all-time high populations after the mid-century suburban flight. Good times all 'round!

Tour des Canadiens 2 is visible just to the right of 1250 Rene-Levesque.
Evolo X is the tower under construction in the distance.
