The image for the two new state-of-the-art towers (49 and 39 floors) define this office complex as a distinct Calgary building using a geographical metaphor of shifting mountain plates and a horizontal glass composition at the base. Each tower features a dramatic full height sloping glass wall meant to symbolize ice walls and glaciers, each facing the splendid view of the Rockies.
