A mixed-use development, this is the first high-rise office building in Canada to be pre-certified in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Core and Shell (LEED-CS) construction standard.

Some of the sustainable features that we are contributing include:

  • A state-of-the-art building management and control system to monitor consumption and tenant comfort requests
  • 40% reduction in water through features such as ultra low flow urinals
  • Use of outside air to cool the building at certain times
  • Environmentally sensitive refrigerants; and more.

The building covers nearly an entire city block at the former site of the Penny Lane Mall in downtown Calgary. It includes a 50-storey East tower connected to a podium by the city’s Plus-15 system; a winter garden, and six-level underground parking facility.
