I'm not sure they would increase height on spec. The increase says to me they have secured a second tenant who needs the extra space.

Keep it simple. Information should be based off of facts.

SSP "under-construction" criteria is when work on the foundation commences. Will there be any below grade levels?

The fact is, 5 people have confirmed this rumour so far, and those people are well connected.

This website has a time-lapse camera along with video of the entire arena project that includes the Delta Hotel and Stantec Tower.

That is a dedicated soul who is making that time-lapse from his office window. I love the video, and would love to see a rendition of it with-out going through the night time (would also shorten it up a bit). Bravo none the less!

Not worried for this one.

I've moved this thread and updated the title to better reflect what is going on with the project.

70 stories? Yikes indeed. Look forward to seeing something crazy.

never heard of any highrise project being scaled back due to a dip in oil prices. cancelled or delayed...yes...scaled back...no. solid tenants and solid long term future so I suspect not

I doubt there would be a scale back or postponement now. They've already started work. If this project was a year or two away it might have been postponed, but other than that it should be a go.

Fabulous news regarding the height increase. Good to see both Calgary and Edmonton building tall as neither Montreal or Vancouver seem much interested in pushing beyond 200m.

Really?
See Calgary 1980's
The majority Alberta's economy rides on commodities.
Solid tenants don't exist.

The reaction on my part is excitement. A bit of healthy competition isn't a bad thing. It'll hopefully spur developers in Calgary to push for even higher towers (although, perhaps not until oil prices rebound...).

I see Edmonton and Calgary's relationship as somewhat symbiotic - with each city accounting for about a third of Alberta's population, we need both of them to be doing well for the province to thrive. The cities have different economic drivers so I view them as complimentary rather than in competition. One can't hope for Alberta to succeed while wishing ill upon its capital.

I can tell you I've got my pom-poms out and am rooting for a height race.

Also a big fan of this project. What is the building going up on the North West corner of the property?

It's the 'Winter Garden', the bit of the arena that spans over 104 Avenue.

70 stories would be crazy. It would be second in the country in terms of # of stories.

There are 10+ towers built or in construction/planning phase in Toronto over 70?

Another point is, Stantec will not want "another" tenant in their Iconic tower.
If they raise the height I will "eat" my humble pie.
