Description:
CN Tower is an office tower in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It stands at or 26 storeys tall, and was built and formerly owned by the Canadian National Railway Company. At the time of its construction it was the first skyscraper in Edmonton, and the tallest building in Western Canada. Its reign as Edmonton's tallest building lasted from 1966 to 1971.

History

Designed by Abugov & Sunderland, it was western Canada's tallest office tower when completed in 1966. It is now owned by Tawa International Inc., and the last remaining CN employees moved out of the building in 2008.

Built to overlook the old Canadian National rail yard, the building's basement once housed Edmonton's main passenger railway station, until the Canadian National railway tracks leading to Downtown Edmonton were removed in 1998. Since then, passenger trains serving Edmonton have stopped at the Edmonton railway station situated near the Edmonton City Centre Airport.

The building suffered structural damage to the exterior on July 18, 2009, during a severe thunderstorm. Two vehicles were crushed by the falling debris at the base of the building.
