Eighth Avenue

Eighth Avenue Place is the latest, most luxurious office tower to grace the Calgary sky. A truly monumental piece of modern architecture, it is also one of the first certified LEED Platinum office complexes in all of Canada. It is a physical manifestation and affirmation of the city’s connection to the Alberta landscape and the independent spirit of its people.

Not only does Eighth Avenue Place house some of the most prominent Calgary business leaders, it is a marvel of architectural and sustainable design – making it Calgary’s most prominent and luxurious business address.

Starting as an ambitious vision of the Tri-Party Ownership, the architectural firms of Pickard Chilton and Gibbs Gage Architects came together with one of the world’s leading developers, Hines, and principal contractor, Ellis Don, to make Eighth Avenue Place a reality – and together, they created a new standard of design perspective.

Adding to its success, Eighth Avenue Place is managed by top international real estate firm, Hines and owned by a trio of top real-estate investment firms, Ivanhoé Cambridge, Alberta Investment Management Corp. (AIMCo) and Matco Investments Ltd.
