Calgary - Downtown - Highrises 1

Calgary is the 3rd largest city in Canada by population (1,240,000) and is the largest city of the Calgary Census Metropolitan Area in Alberta (containing 1,393,000, the 4th largest in Canada).

Downtown is located on a gentle bend of the Bow River which forms its Northern boundary. I will define Downtown as including the adjacent districts of Downtown Commercial Core, Downtown West End, Eau Claire, Downtown East Village, and Chinatown, as well as Beltline to the South of those districts.

This thread will focus on closer views of the variety of highrises, starting with several from the late 1960's since the city's vertical development really started at that time.


Calgary Tower:







Other highrises:









































City Hall:
This is not really a highrise, more of a massive midrise.



Postmodern highrises:











More transitional highrises approaching contemporary:
