Calgary’s Brookfield Place office tower will soon tower over most of its neighbours. The 57-storey East Tower is set to be Calgary’s tallest office building and second only to Toronto’s First Canadian Place in all of Canada.
The East Tower (phase 1), and anticipated West tower (phase 2) will be connected via ground floor and mezzanine space contained in a 63-foot-high Winter Garden Pavilion (part of phase 1).
The development will connect to neighbouring buildings via Calgary’s +15 pedestrian walkway. Both the ground floor and +15 levels will feature lobby and retail space.
The building envelope systems on the East Tower include unitized curtain wall with curved conical corner glass, structural glass wall systems at the crown and ground floor spaces of the building and insulated metal cladding systems. The Pavilion is a jewel-box-like structure consisting of glass walls and roof, taking on the appearance of a glass box softened by rounded corners and edges. Mullion sections measuring 13 inches by 3 inches will support the Pavilion’s glass envelope.
