CALGARY — Telus Corp. is planning to build a $400-million, 58-storey, 750,000 square-foot tower, in downtown Calgary that will be among the tallest in Western Canada.

 

The company said “Telus Sky” will transform Calgary’s skyline with “an architectural marvel, creating a dynamic community of blended urban living and working.” Telus says it will transform the entire 7th Avenue S.W. block into “one of the most technologically innovative and environmentally-friendly sites” in North America.

 

It will include the first 26 floors of office space and 32 upper floors, comprising 341 residential units.

 

“The Telus team is tremendously proud of our long-standing history in Alberta and thrilled to announce the development of Telus Sky, which will stand as a lasting symbol of our passionate commitment to the Calgary community, our customers, our team members and to the province of Alberta,” said Darren Entwistle, president and chief executive of Telus.

 

Telus Sky will be a LEED Platinum signature development for Telus created by world-renowned architects Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and Dialog, along with partners: real estate developer Westbank and real estate investment trust Allied Properties, which owns existing building at the site Art Central.

 

The company says Telus Sky will be the most significant next-generation property in Calgary’s history. It will also feature a storm water management system to recycle rain water for washroom toilets and outdoor irrigation, reducing water use by millions of litres per year. When complete, Telus Sky will use 35% less energy than similar size developments. Plans are underway to improve upon that energy efficiency, with the goal to have the final development use 80% less energy than similar developments.

Not even Telus' Vancouver HQ proposal or their recent completion in Toronto come remotely close to this proposal in terms of audacity and scale. Kind of makes you wonder if they have bigger plans for Calgary...

Ou, tranquillement, ils font comme Bell, BMO, Air Canada, RBC, etc. en laissant un fake HQ dans la ville de naissance et déplacent le vrai HQ dans une nouvelle ville ?

La tour comprendra 341 unités de logement locatif. Sur 58 étages ça va certainement prendre beaucoup de place. L'espace réel qui sera consacré à Telus s'en trouve donc vraiment amoindrit. Je ne pense donc pas qu'on parle de changement de ville pour le HQ
