Calgary's 60-storey Telus Sky building welcomes tenants

One of Calgary's tallest buildings is now officially open for business. 

Tuesday marked the grand opening of Telus Sky, a 60-storey skyscraper in the 600 block of Centre Street South.

Though the building's eye-catching light display has been captivating Calgarians for a few years, tenants are now moving in.

The tower offers the 750,000 square feet of retail, office and residential space and was designed by architectural firms Bjarke Ingels Group and Dialog.

The exterior of the building features an LED art installation called The Northern Lights, designed by Douglas Coupland, that illuminates Calgary's skyline every evening.

There is also artwork on each floor that officials say celebrates contemporary Canadian and Indigenous artists from across Canada.

Telus Sky is the third tallest building in Calgary behind Brookfield Place East and The Bow, and among the 20 tallest in Canada. Top Stories
