CALGARY | Jamieson Place | 568 FT / 173 M | 38 FLOORS

I'm surprised to see that with all of the Calgary highrise threads here that Jamieson place doesn't have a thread.

Another great project for Calgary.

This project is nice. It's going to be quite hidden if City Centre is built, but it looks good. Construction to begin in the Spring.

Love the clean lines. Looks like something you would see in Miami.

Calgary's skyline is going to get very dense.

Nice density builder for the city. All those parking lots really do damage to the city fabric.

Bye bye Japanese villlage.
I also like this project alot, although it seems to have that TD Canada Trust tower feel I think it doesn't hurt if another tower went up with similar features as the existing except updated to 2006 standards of architectural taste.

Those two vertical elements at the front will be the dominant feature of the building. It will bring some of the flashyness of Shanghai to a city like ours.
Multicolored LED tubes will be on both vertical elements starting from the mechanical floor making its way 140m to the very top. The spire is actually a light box or a lantern as some refer. The winter garden inside will also be very high quality and nice including reflecting pools and lots of plants.

Its one of my favorite projects after BOw.

They should put that LED tubing along the diamond cross bracing of the Bow.
I see some similarity with this and the TD Canada Trust tower, but this is definately nicer. Where in the building is this winter garden going? every new proposal seems to have a garden in it.

Bright white LED tubing on the diamond bracing of the Bow would look nifty, and make the building really stand out at night. That's a good idea - Calgary's skyline needs a bit of jazz for the night time, because the lighting we've got down there is kind of boring.

It might affect their LEED rating if they did that, however it would look really cool.

So any new news on this project?

I like this one a lot more than some of the other proposals outt here right now. I wish this thing was 30 floors higher and prevented Penny Lane from going up. Not that PL is bad, this is just better. More fun, even if it will date quickly.

They have an anchor tenant too, so it should be going ahead within a few months.
