Part of downtown Calgary’s elevated “Plus-15” walkway system, this walkway will be located along 9th Avenue at the end of 2nd Street S.W. and will reach from Penn West Plaza to the Gulf Canada Square in a sweeping curve that will become Calgary’s longest Plus-15.
The design involves a single mast with radial cable supports, giving the walkway a pendulous appearance, and drawing attention to its location as an important visual stop at the end of 2nd Street.
- LED-illuminated exterior panels will line the north side of the curved portion of the walkway.
- The interior design rationale treats the walkway as more than a purely functional transition; the design includes public furniture and a south wall capable of hosting public art and other displays.
- Interior details echo the radial design of the suspension cables, unifying the overall design.
- The walkway will enclose the curved ramp leading into the Gulf Canada Square parkade, enriching the site visually with greatly improved urban design.
