The skyline of Calgary is set to change come 2017. Situated in the 100 block of 7 Ave. S.W., the TELUS Sky is a mixed use 59-storey tower. This skyscraper will feature a combination of office space, retail stores and luxury serviced residences.
The TELUS Sky Tower promises to “expand beautiful” in Calgary’s downtown core. It will include a vertical garden wall, an integrated public art program, a world-class restaurant and luxury amenities. This tower is designed with energy conservation in mind – it will be 35 percent more energy-efficient than similar office buildings.
It’s hard to beat the location of the TELUS Sky Tower in downtown Calgary. With its unique design, the tower is set to transform the downtown of one of North America’s fastest growing cities. Located steps away from the C Train LRT, it’s connected to the +15 network and is only one block from Stephen Avenue restaurants and shopping.
The TELUS Sky Tower is at the cutting edge of skyscrapers. It’s the ideal place to set up your business, boasting the healthiest, most productive work environment possible.
There’s nothing worse than stuffy air in an office. It features fresh air supply, unlike the recirculated air found in most offices.
Step out on your balcony and gaze into the beautiful Calgary skyline, watching the sun set in the night. Units feature near 10 feet tall floor-to-ceiling glass, perfect for letting in natural light. The building’s raised floor and dropped ceiling makes it the ideal building for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
What would a tower be without world-class amenities? The TELUS Sky Tower offers amenities you won’t find anywhere else in Calgary. Upon entering the building, you’re greeting with music from a handmade Fazioli piano played by students from Calgary’s Royal Conservatory.
The building’s second floor will be home to Calgary’s finest restaurant. A concierge will be on call to help you, your team and your guests, with your every need. The fitness and wellness centre is not the typical unstaffed room with outdated gym equipment. It’s home to a world-class facility, providing a full range of health services from fitness classes to personal training and massage therapy.
Taking Sustainability Seriously
TELUS Sky Tower holds the distinct honour of being Calgary’s first building built to current LEED Platinum standards. But sustainability doesn’t end there. To help encourage healthy living, the building provides secured bike parking, showers and lockers.
Not only do the building’s triple pane windows cut down on noise, it reduces solar gain and energy bills. The building leverages off of its district energy system to salvage wasted heat and provide domestic hot water. This results in an overall 80 percent reduction in grid energy demand for heating and cooling.
Whether you’re looking for a luxury condo or a home office suite, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better location. The TELUS Sky Tower promises to be the skyscraper of the future. What are you waiting for? Plan your move today while there are still units left in this state-of-the-art condo building.
