    I think trees prevent seeing the towers downtown, at some locations.

    What about the horizon line? That is just the point where the sky meets land point. Tall objects Stantec will still stand out from that line- although quite small.

    That distance is based on the height of 250.8 metres given in the thread title. From the top, you can see 56.6 km/ . Inversely, from the same distance, you should see the top of the tower.

    For example, at my height of 1.75 m, the horizon is about 4.7 km.

    Try different numbers and see what you get.

    I understand what you were trying to say before you even uploaded all the information. All that info was part of my highschool art 10 class from highschool over 3 decades ago. I think you are explaining the "vanishing point."

    It's visible from the cemetery hill east of Ardrossan and near the Doppler radar station around Carvel

    Calgary’s are down by the river with a hill in front. Coming in on the QE2 and Deerfoot you only see the top half of the skyscrapers. Coming into the Bow Valley on 17th from Forest Lawn and Bow Trail from the west are great views. Crescent Road on the north hill, Salisbury St. on Scotsman’s hill are great and from the south coming in over the hill of the Chinese cemetery on Macleod.

    They seem to be placing metal bracing on the elevator shaft on the east side in areas where they haven't put glazing. Anyone know what they might be doing here?

    On the 65th floor now. 1 more residential floor, 3 mechanical floors, and this is topped off.

    First wave of Stantec staff move in Sept 15. Is it clear yet where the main office access doors are on the building? I know the lobby is on 3/4 but imagine there's elevator/escalator directly to there without having to work up through the podim. Curious how they'll manage that with the continuing construction above.

    Just did a floor count from the webcam... and I think they are just getting to the slab for floor 65. They should have two more floor slabs to pour... lvl 66 floor and the floor slab of the first level of the mechanical penthouse.

    My count was that they are working on the 66th floor now. Either way, close to being done.

    I am just curious if you work there or how do you know that the first move is Sept 15?

    Stantec crane got bumped up again today. Surely for the last time now.

    I don't understand why they had the "window" opening in that concrete shaft but now they're covering up. What was the point of that?

    Could have provided positive pressure for the shaft? not sure.

    We need a high viewing floor in town. I used to go up to Vista 33 often and was disappointed when they closed it. Hoping for something soon. I still go up the Calgary Tower two or three times a year. SonnyBoy loves to go up.

    They are great. All great with the new towers. Edmonton is looking like Dallas,Texas these days.
