Plaza 75. I would have loved to see this one get built.

MacIntyre Plaza..... I believe it was also called Cascade Plaza at one time. Kind of an interesting one. Would have made for nice sunset blue hour pics.

Wow, that Plaza 75 would have been kick ass! Too bad it never got built. Great idea for a thread, I wonder what other proposals were out there that we've never seen?

The second tower will never get built as was originally designed, which is unfortunate. Looked really cool. The newest design is a 25 storey monument to boredom.

Yes I Do!. The 2nd Tower was to B 64 Floors. B of M Planned to Build 2 Bldgs. The DEPRESSION of 1982 Hit so It NEVER GOT BUILT. I Believe a Model is Still in the Main Lobby of 1st Cdn Centre, They Built the Foundations for the 2nd Tower and Turned it into a Mini Plaza of Sorts. I Doubt the 2nd Tower Will Ever Get Built.

Tnx,
Operater.
Does anyone have a pic of the buildings? I tried googling and couldn't find anything.

Its Owned by "Calhome Properties". It will B 17 Floors Up, a Low Income Project as Such. For now as Money becomes Available they do Some Work. Its all I have for now. Hope it Helps, OK.

Tnx,
Operater,
Calhome Properties was the former name of Calgary Housing Company, a subsidiary of City of Calgary.
