I was wondering how this was coming. First new high-rise up there in a while. Anyone know the official height in feet?

What an innovative technology, yet what a bland design.

I've totally found the renderings uninspiring some days, but I really think it's going to turn out pretty cool based on the plan views.

Thanks for the update 1ajs.

Please continue to update us with pictuers. Weekly or bi weekly at least.
Here in Calgary, we are abooming like nuts. YOu guys wouldn't believe the amount of stuff going on in cowtown.

Im sure a bunch of you guys at the Peg has heard about what is happening to Calgary these days with their office market. That and the stampede!

Cowtown has a bunch going on right now and I am glad we aren't the only ones along with Toronto and Vancouver getting all this. Great job for your city to get such a sustainable and clean high rise tower.

I will keep checking every few days and look forward to seeing this be added to your skyline.

Oh ya, is it true that Winnipeg is the Slurpee Capital of Canada? I duno about that....

Nice updates, thanks. This one, due to its unusual feature, should be interesting to rise.
