Oxford Properties Group announced the development of Eau Claire Tower: an approximately 600,000 square foot, 25 storeys, Class AAA, LEED Gold office tower in Calgary. Currently named in recognition of the downtown Calgary district, the building will be Oxford’s third office tower to be constructed in this district in the past three years, and will become the new corporate head office for MEG Energy Corp., who will occupy approximately 11 floors in the building.
“Oxford has a rich development history in Alberta — it’s where we started over 50 years ago,” said Blake Hutcheson, president and CEO, Oxford Properties. “We look forward to further committing to the vibrant city of Calgary with the development of Eau Claire Tower, and to growing our existing relationship with the team at MEG as lead tenant.”
Designed by the architectural firm B+H Architects, Eau Claire Tower will have a modern aesthetic and feature an efficient floor plate and large windows with views of the Bow River valley and the Rocky Mountains to the West. The building is targeted to achieve a minimum LEED Gold certification. The development will also feature a fitness and gym facility, separate bicycle parking complete with shower and locker facilities for cyclists commuting to work and will be +15 connected to Centennial Place (see our slideshow on the homepage).
