Groundbreaking at Brookfield Place Calgary
November 1, 2013 - Construction began Wednesday on the Brookfield Place Calgary east tower, which will be Western Canada’s tallest building on completion. The architects designing the towers are Fender Katsalidis Arney with Dialog.
Encompassing a full city block, Brookfield Place Calgary is the largest private sector construction project in the city’s history.
For the first phase of construction, Gustafson Guthrie Nichol designed a half-acre public space. Multiple public plazas, high-quality streetscapes, and an indoor "winter garden" will provide space for social activities, public art, and cultural events to activate the core of downtown. Shannon Nichol is the lead landscape designer.
