Project of the year
Commercial (Over $50M)
The Bow is the Top Project in the Commercial-Over $50 Million category. Not only is it western Canada's tallest building at 58 storeys, but its distinctive curved shape is quickly gaining the attention of those outside the province. One Toronto newspaper columnist has gone so far as to write that The Bow is "not just another tower; it's a piece of architecture."
Designed by renowned British firm Foster + Partners, the western-facing orientation of The Bow, with its diagonal grid pattern, provides dramatic views of the Rockies while taking advantage of the western sunshine.
Ledcor began construction of the glass and steel structure in 2007. Other key players include Gensler, Zeidler Partnership Architects, Sturgess Architecture, Gustafson Guthrie Nichol Ltd., Carson McCulloch Associates Ltd., Halcrow Yolles, Cosentini Associates, D.A. Watt Consulting Group Ltd. and Kellam Berg Engineering Ltd.
