Morguard Real Estate Investment Trust has officially opened a new footpath segment of downtown Calgary’s Plus 15 network, at Penn West Plaza.
The latest addition connects the building at 215 9th Avenue SW to Gulf Canada Square and the system’s 83 bridges.
With nearly 16 kilometres of sheltered elevated pedestrian walkways, Plus 15’s new segment also features a sweeping curved bridge with a visually-stunning LED-illuminated exterior, and contemporary single-mast design.
“Contributing to Calgary’s Plus 15 system expansion underscores our mandate to invest in strategic projects that benefit our tenants and serve the communities in which we operate,” said K. Rai Sahi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Morguard.
Penn West Plaza is one of Calgary’s premier Class “A” buildings. The property includes a dual tower complex with 636,324 square feet of office space, and 30-storeys combined between its 10-storey East Tower and 20-storey West Tower.
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 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.”
