"The newest extension to Plus 15 enhances our building’s profile and confirms Penn West’s place as one of Calgary’s prominent office properties,” said Randy Borisenko, Regional General Manager, Calgary. “We are thankful for the local government, planning and construction partners, and our tenants at Penn West Plaza who worked with us to bring this project to completion.”
The newest addition to the network connects the building at 215 9th Avenue SW (Penn West Plaza) to Gulf Canada Square and the system’s 83 bridges and nearly 16 kilometres of sheltered elevated pedestrian walkways.
Plus 15’s new segment features a sweeping curved bridge with a visually-stunning LED-illuminated exterior and contemporary single-mast design, while providing Calgary’s pedestrians with increased ease of movement throughout the walkway system. Interior details will echo the exterior design.
The project was completed thanks to the collaboration with the City of Calgary, Calgary Parking Authority and CP Rail among other partners, led by Morguard. The original design of the bridge was created by Abugov Kaspar Architects, and construction and project management were co-led by EllisDon and Concept Consulting.
