Foster’s “Bow” to dominate Calgary’s skyline 

The EnCana Corporation, Canada’s No l Energy Producer, this week unveiled designs for its new Calgary-based headquarters. Designed by Foster and Partners, the 59-storey crescent-shaped glass and steel tower, which has been dubbed “The Bow” after its shape and the river that runs near it, will be Canada’s tallest building west of Toronto and Foster and Partner’s largest project in North America. The project, which covers two city blocks, will house 1.7 million square feet of space. In addition to allowing EnCana to centralize its employees in a single location, the building will house indoor gardens, public spaces, retail space, a boutique hotel, and other cultural amenities. Construction of the tower will begin in the summer of 2007 with occupancy expected in 2011.
