Brookfield Place[1] is a commercial development located between 1st and 2nd Streets and 6th and 7th Avenues SW in downtown Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The development consists of a 1.4 million square feet, 56-storey tower which is 247 meters tall, making it Calgary's tallest building.[2]

The building provides a 60-foot-high transparent glass pavilion, retail shops and amenities at street and Plus 15 Level, and underground parking currently accommodating 550 parking stalls.

A half-acre public plaza illuminated year round, features entertainers, cultural activities, public art, summer markets and programmed activity provided by Brookfield’s award-winning Arts Brookfield program[3]. Visitors are welcome to experience the unique sights and sounds that come to life through movement via artwork in both the interior and exterior of the building[4]. Floor to ceiling interior abstract art encompasses both the natural and digital worlds.[5]

The building was designed by London and Toronto-based architecture firm Arney Fender Katsalidis. The delivery architect was Calgary based Dialog.[6]

The development is constructed to LEED Gold standard for Core and Shell.[7] Commuters have direct access to the Plus 15 skywalk system and the CTrain LRT system on 7th Avenue. The property houses electric car plug-in recharge stations and an innovative bicycle parking facility, accessible by dedicated bike ramps separate from vehicular traffic [8]
