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.
PLUS + 15
Part of downtown Calgary’s elevated “Plus-15” walkway system, this walkway is located along 9th Avenue at the end of 2nd Street S.W. reaching from Penn West Plaza to the Gulf Canada Square in a sweeping curve that has 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.
