Scheduled for completion in 2017, TELUS Sky is a leading example of creating a dynamic community of urban living and working. The 750,000 SF LEED Platinum signature tower is located in the heart of downtown Calgary and will incorporate a vibrant mix of residential, office, retail and public-use space within the 58 storey development.
The project consists of 341 residential suites, 430,000 SF of office space, with 155,000 SF allocated for TELUS office use, and will also feature a 5,500 SF public gallery to support Calgary’s burgeoning arts culture.
Targeting LEED Platinum certification, TELUS Sky will feature a storm water management system to recycle rainwater for washroom toilets and outdoor irrigation, reducing water usage by millions of litres annually. When complete, TELUS Sky will use 35% less energy than similar sized developments with plans to further improve energy efficiency to a goal of 80% less energy than similar developments, setting a leading example in sustainability.
