Calgary's Courtyard 33 has cleared its final hurdles and is now approved and ready to head to construction. I may have posted this project when it was first proposed last year, not sure, but the reason I'm posting is due to the revolutionary nature of this project for a city like Calgary. This project is located in Marda Loop, a few kilometers from the core, and the project led to a large community backlash due to how much taller it is (22 m) than the zoning allows (16 m). The project's approval, in my mind, exemplifies the urban shift Calgary has been going through for the past decade, and it almost seems to be the culmination of such. It's the first building in the city to include a large interior public courtyard with programmable space and retail bays, as well as retail bays on 3 of the 4 sides. For a small building, it's making big waves. The city launched a public vote for the large public art features by local artists that will be featured in two locations on the building @ http://cy33.ca/art/

Great! And wow....those NIMBYs are ferocious....although that's going by how the story you've told sounds. I'd need to view the site to really put in an accurate opinion of the matter.

Trust, the nimbyism in Calgary is almost incomprehensible. It's a miracle that we're densifying as much as we are.

It does look great. They aren't being authentic with the rendering. The building's structure has been "airbrushed". That always worries me.

I'm very excited for Courtyard 33. Looks great! Courtyards are a trend that needs to be revived.

That's a developer's site. The design is undeniably 546.

That's correct, designed by 5468796 and developed by RNDSQR.

Well, I'm an idiot. Thanks for clarifying. Not sure why I thought that would be the architect's site.

Actual purpose-built rental buildings or condo units?

Another tall tower for downtown, 66 floors at 1075 Bay St. I placed a generic 220 metre tower on top of the current office building, will have to wait until proper renders come out:

Looks like our former BMO site in the middle of Downtown will have a ~50-62 storey, 175m tower.

---
The projects listed in the Colliers report as under construction come onstream this year and next. Regency Developments’ proposed tower smack in the heart of the city’s financial district is targeted for 2022.

Raj Dhunna, Regency’s chief operating officer, seems unperturbed by the number of competing properties.

The as-yet-unnamed tower was expecting development permit approval as early as this month, Dhunna says.

The plan is to spend 18 months building an underground parkade on the former site of a BMO bank, and then start working on the above-ground portion which could include a 12-floor hotel and a 50-storey residential tower.

old/initial rendering - They are back to design committee soon and so I would expect something quite a bit more refined.
