Looks like this one incorporates the facade of a historic building?

No, it is a faux historic facade to make it look like 3 buildings. This proposal is getting a little stale as it has been around for 4 or 5 years with no forward traction.

It looks like it, but this is getting built on a parking lot.

No, there doesn't appear to be a historical building on that site. Looks like it'll just be a faux-historical base, unless I'm looking at Street View all wrong.

Looks nice, though I dislike the skewers on top. They look a bit fussy in the rendering.

Hmmmm, if it's a fauxstorical facade, send this bad boy back to the drawing board.

Why? Calgary doesn't have that many pre-war buildings. Its tallest is barely over 50m. I think if done right this will look great

They have exterior and interior renderings up on their website for those interested.

I like this one fr the most part, just don't like that hotel portion with the fake historical look.

I like this one! Better than 3EC. Hope it ends up taller, if it gets built!

To my unrefined eye (tmue), I like this one too. The masonry part doesn’t read as fake historical to me, and I like the way it goes with the two other styles.

There is no historical building on this site. They are just making it look like they are incorporating one. Right now the lot has a convenience store and a strip mall with a few restaurants. It is far from construction stage as tenants are still occupying the existing building.

Unfortunately it is fake historical. That's the only part of the building I don't care for.

Is this actually gonna be constructed?

I haven't seen any news on Kings on Fourth in a while. Does anyone know if it is still on?

I think this one is still in the works, but taking a back seat while La Caille focuses on Vogue. I'd assume this will be the next project for them in the Downtown Core though

I just love the Fairmont (Palliser) hotel! Reminds me a lot of the Hilton & Towers Hotel on South Mich. Ave. in Chicago, albeit smaller. I sure hope Kings on 4th gets built this this cycle. Got a funny feeling, these proposals are coming in very "fast & furious"!

Follow up on previous post. I wonder if they'll re-design this baby?

Kings on Fourth has been reactivated.

At 210 meters it will be Calgary's sixth building over 210 meters (690 feet) once complete, after Brookfield Place and Telus Sky are finished in 2017.


http://www.kingsonfourth.com/

Highlights of the project, courtesy of H.E.Pennypacker:

- Not much ground level retail beyond a coffee bar - but given that there needs to be separate office/residential/hotel lobbies so it's fine

- The second level features a restaurant, retail space connected to the +15

- Third floor contains meeting rooms and a ball room while the fourth floor contains a pool/spa area and fitness room (probably for all users of the building)

- Levels 5-14 are a 50/50 split of office and hotel rooms; 15-25 is all office; 26-46 is all residential; finally there is a rooftop garden on half of the 47th floor

I have always loved the crown on this one, but I can't see it happening in the short term as there is still a strip mall full of tenants.
