At the turn of the last century, High-Rise buildings began to solidify their place in urban centres, as you can see with the development of High-Rise condos for sale in Calgary. Especially in the downtown core. The industrial revolution created the need to bring more workers closer to work and elevators and concrete made them functional.

The original reinforced concrete and steel buildings of the mid-century are slowly being replaced by glass condo towers in city centres and megacities. Units are shrinking but public and shared use spaces are increasing by way of amenities like community meeting space, party rooms, fitness centres and even theatres.
