Confluence Way SE & 5th St SE, Calgary, Alberta T2G 0G1
FIRST is a graphically-striking 18-floor building surrounded on three sides by a four-story podium. The graphic aspect of the building comes from black metal that frames sections of windows to great effect. Wood framing on the low rise adds to the visual interest. A courtyard on the third floor of the low rise gives everyone views and fresh air in a sheltered environment, even in winter. There are views both toward the river and westward, toward the city.
FIRST is located just off RiverWalk in the River’s Edge area, one street back of the Bow River. “We spent a lot of time trying to understand the importance of the river to city,” says Roland Rom Colthoff of RAW, the Toronto architecture firm designing FIRST. Rom Colthoff, an avid backcountry skier and hiker, has been a longtime observer of the Calgary skyline and landscape. “The river is this forgotten gem, and it’s nice to be part of its rediscovery and reanimation.
FIRST’s incredible location across from the historic Simmons Building and beautiful Bow means 24/7 front-door access to the riverfront and revamped RiverWalk pathway.
