Telus Sky is a proposed mixed use development located between 1st & Centre Streets and 6th & 7th Avenues SW in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The development, consisting of 750 000 square feet, includes what will be the third tallest building in western Canada at 59 storeys and 222.3 meters tall.[1] The tower will include 28 floors of office space, the remaining 31 floors being rental apartments, along with a rooftop garden and amenities centre as the 60th level. Overall, the development will include 450 000 sq. ft. of office space, 252 000 sq. ft. of residential space, 15 000 sq. ft. of retail space, and 5500 sq. ft. of art gallery space.[2] The construction of Telus Sky will necessitate the demolition of Art Central, a large space dedicated to the Calgary arts community. As such, Telus Sky will include 5500 square feet of gallery space on the ground floor. The development will also include the recladding of the 17-storey Len Werry building directly to the west of Telus Sky. [3]


Progress[edit]

As of March 20, 2014, the demolition of Art Central was planned to take place between July and September. Tenants of the facility have already began vacating.[4]
