Calgary's Kings on Fourth has applied for its development permit. 210 meters tall.



Actually, on second thought, I may have posted that before.

And everything is centred around the intersection of Front and Simcoe?

156 Front?
Union Square?
Oxford Place? which came out of hiding this week..

So I actually expect to see a rendering of Oxford Place shortly, although it would have a longer development time than the other projects because of the size of the existing buildings. Union Square and 156 Front are being built on building free land. That would tighten up their timelines.

I was hesitant about 151 Front at first. But those renderings posted by FrankieFlowerpot has really got my interest. That is a nice looking building.

Yeah... and Wellesley on the Park as well. I'd like to see that height increase to 1 Yorkville too.

With 48 floors, Union Centre should break 200m. Will probably be around the height of Bay Wellington Tower.

Union Centre is a crazy interesting proposal. Visually interesting for sure, but squeezing it into that alley and building a pedestrian entry plaza is a great use of that space (though it seems a bit of a stretch to give it a York St. address...). It should have a beautifully thin profile as a result, and I like how it will tie together with the new UP Express station too.

On that note, I presume work has been done on the UP Express station downtown? I don't recall seeing any construction photos of it, what does it look like so far?

Whoever changed the database entry for Union Centre estimated the height at 220 metres.

Gawd I wish they'd get rid of that red brick building fronting Front.

Glad to hear Kings on 4th is going the planning board for DP. Hope it breaks the 700' mark!

Still under construction right now, looks like a box with a sheet over it.

Right now it's a steel shell, it doesn't look like much quite yet.

Union Center looks gorgeous! Another 200m+ commercial project proposed in Toronto , the second this year. Something tells me the same tenant CF is talking to for 156 Front may also be looking at this building. Such a great location here though for employees. People can ride right in from anywhere in the GTA and take an elevator right up to their work. How convenient!
