Cool Calgary Cranes II

The Calgary crane count thread continues here. I can't promise to be as detailed with my count, I don't know the makes and exact model numbers of the cranes, but I will try to keep the list as accurate as possible. You'll have to help me out on a lot of the suburan sites, as I'm not in those parts very often.

Evolution East Village (Fuse & Pulse): 3

U of C Engineering School Expansion: 2
Eau Claire Tower: 2

Thanks Bigtime!
I think Highbury still has a crane - there was one when I drove by 2 weeks ago.
Also is there still a crane at the Glenmore Water Treatment plant? You should be able to see it from your place.
Astoria?

I'll add Highbury and Astoria, Water Treatment plant is clear. None up there anymore.

I think Mount Royal may have a few, and what about the UofC?

I'll add the base at Lumino, I think EAP also has a base on the west site.

That I can check out with binoculars when I get home tonight.

I may also be able to see over to MRU and get a count on the east side of the campus at least.

No cranes there from what I saw driving by yesterday.


The Lumino crane also seems to have a section or two that's been erected, but it's been that way for the past few days.

I was very surprised to see a crane being used to build a big new house on Marquette Street in Mount Royal. It isn't a tower crane so it wouldn't warrant inclusion on this list, but I just thought I would mention it as the house is quite the construction project and worth checking out. There are lots of new houses to see in Mount Royal. There is one being built on Earl Grey Crescent that I look forward to seeing when it is completed.

The Lumino base now has a crane being set up on it. Almost fully up as of right now.
