To me, the floating nature of this building is reminiscent of CitiCorp tower in NYC. I presume the Calgary engineers would have avoided the fatal flaws in its creation unlike the NYC counterparts. I would have loved to see this building built!
Does anyone have a pic of the buildings? I tried googling and couldn't find anything.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.
Calhome Properties was the former name of Calgary Housing Company, a subsidiary of City of Calgary.Hi Group,
