“Calgary’s Phillips Building stands in defiance of its skyscraping neighbours, evoking a lost late expression of International-style architecture that is too often dismissed by purveyors of progress.”
Skyline Calgary wrote a great article that illustrates the contrarian values of PBA and showcases our Phillips Building downtown.
At PBA, giving back to the community is very important to us.
James Scott, our Vice President of Planning, embodies that value, especially with his recent appointment to the Calgary Planning Commission.
He’s worked hard to get to this point and we are very happy for him! Thanks especially to BILD Calgary Region (Building Industry & Land Development) for the nomination.
Being appointed to this role is an honour and truthfully, it’s difficult to achieve. There is a long list of criteria necessary to make the grade. To be considered for this role, a person must show expertise in areas like Architecture, Real Estate Development, Urban Design & Urban Planning. James holds up his end of this bargain.
He’s worked in Urban Planning for more than 14 years all-told and has been involved in some of the biggest and most beautiful developments in Calgary and area.
Although we feel this is a prestigious role, it’s important to recognize his commitment to building quality communities and a better Calgary overall. We know James is honoured to be a part of such a committed and strong group of individuals and we feel lucky to have him on our team.Read Less

The Southbow Landing project boasts beautiful wetlands, a four-hectare-sized Village Centre and housing for 7000+ Cochranites. It will be a beautiful community, no doubt.
