BuzzBuzzHome: Booming Calgary is seeing so much new construction that some of the city’s most iconic buildings — like the Calgary Tower — will be obscured from most views in a few years’ time.
Graphic designer Devin Henry offers us a dramatic preview of this rapid evolution with a series of renderings showcasing all the proposed, approved and under construction developments. Feast your eyes on the future.

Standing above all other building in this image is Brookfield Place Tower One, which will become Calgary’s tallest tower in 2018. Walk about five blocks east and travel back in time to 1949 and this is what you would see.

Henry’s most recent rendering of Calgary’s includes the rumoured Oxford Tower, which, at 62 floors, would take the title of Calgary’s tallest building away from Brookfield Place.
And here, of course, is the city from a comparable angle today.
