Ivanhoé Cambridge inaugurates a prestige address in Calgary

Yesterday, October 16, Ivanhoé Cambridge and its partners AIMCo and Matco Investments Ltd. marked the official opening of the West Tower of the Eighth Avenue Place office complex in Calgary, Alberta. Joined by representatives from building manager Hines, the new building’s tenants and various members of the Calgary business community, along with municipal and government representatives, celebrated the opening of this iconic building in its splendid glass lobby.

Eighth Avenue Place is among a series of major development projects for Ivanhoé Cambridge. Our projects are found around the world.

  • In Toronto two weeks ago, we announced one of the city’s biggest real estate projects, at 45-141 Bay Street.
  • In Montreal, we announced the Maison Manuvie project, a world class office tour at 900 de Maisonneuve West.
  • In Paris:
    • In 2007, we delivered the T1 and B office buildings;
    • Last year, there came ARDEKO;
    • And soon, we will begin construction of DUO, a mixed-use project and the first skyscraper in Paris since Montparnasse.
  • In Chicago, we have started work on the prestigious River Point project.

Eighth Avenue Place, together with these other projects, provides a perfect illustration of Ivanhoé Cambridge’s workspace strategy and its high-quality service, which exceeds the expectations of the most demanding clients. We continue to invest and develop to strengthen our presence in the world’s major cities.
