We last visited the construction site of Allen Wasnea Engineering's Symphony Tower in the summer, when the 27-storey project was in the infancy of its above-grade climb near the Alberta Legislature. The scene a few months later is noticeably different, and it's not just the weather that has changed. The concrete skeleton of the building is now approximately halfway towards its topping-out point, with its soaring yellow tower crane denoting the site from afar.

Designed by KENNEDY Architecture, the glassy tower protrudes from a block occupied by two Edwardian structures. The 1907-built Foot House and the 1913 Parkview Apartments were acquired by the developer and restored ahead of vertical construction. The apartment complex has retained its use, while the stately home has acted as the Symphony Tower's sales centre.

The base of the 143-unit project is typified by six townhouses. The angles and curves of the building's profile produce an abundance of distinct floor plans. Seven different configurations comprise floors four through 17, while an additional 12 unique floor plans are spread across levels 18 through 27. Residents of the units — which take their names from famous musical composers — have a choice between three interior design packages.
