The Bow tower is the tallest building in Calgary.
The 59-storey, 1.9-million-square-foot, $1.4 billion tower was announced in October 2006. It was initially owned by Encana but later sold to H&R Real Estate Investment Trust. Energy giants Encana and Cenovus are the skyscraper’s main tenants at Centre Street and 5th and 6th Avenues S.E.
The Bow has six floors of underground parking connecting under 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue with nearly 1,400 parking stalls and just over 400 spots for bicycles. The structure has 42 elevators. The total square footage of the skyscraper is equal to 48 Saddledomes. There are three Sky Gardens in the structure.
The design architect on the Bow was world-renowned Foster + Partners.
