This 18-storey mid-rise residential tower is situated in downtown Calgary’s East Village. The 197,500 sq. ft. tower includes 191 units and three levels of underground parking, a rooftop lounge, fitness centre, yoga studio and wifi cafe. The elegant design allows residents the ability to enjoy the benefits of downtown living, while enjoying access to Calgary’s evolving urban village. As the structural engineers for this exciting new development, RJC developed economical structural solutions to achieve the owner and architect’s vision. In particular, the efficient and economic structural transitions between residential, retail and parking framing in reinforced concrete, were given particular attention. The combination of wood and steel frame construction achieved cost savings for the mid-rise and townhome components of this urban development.
