    I think trees prevent seeing the towers downtown, at some locations.

    What about the horizon line? That is just the point where the sky meets land point. Tall objects Stantec will still stand out from that line- although quite small.

    That distance is based on the height of 250.8 metres given in the thread title. From the top, you can see 56.6 km/ . Inversely, from the same distance, you should see the top of the tower.

    For example, at my height of 1.75 m, the horizon is about 4.7 km.

    Try different numbers and see what you get.

    I understand what you were trying to say before you even uploaded all the information. All that info was part of my highschool art 10 class from highschool over 3 decades ago. I think you are explaining the "vanishing point."

    It's visible from the cemetery hill east of Ardrossan and near the Doppler radar station around Carvel

    Calgaryís are down by the river with a hill in front. Coming in on the QE2 and Deerfoot you only see the top half of the skyscrapers. Coming into the Bow Valley on 17th from Forest Lawn and Bow Trail from the west are great views. Crescent Road on the north hill, Salisbury St. on Scotsmanís hill are great and from the south coming in over the hill of the Chinese cemetery on Macleod.

    They seem to be placing metal bracing on the elevator shaft on the east side in areas where they haven't put glazing. Anyone know what they might be doing here?
