Regina's Symbol

Walking in downtown, everybody knows the famous and eye-catching twin towers. Even you, new Reginans, have properly seen them at least once or twice although you do not know their names- McCallum Hill Centre. It is so famous even that you can see it in the city’s logo.

McCallum Hill Centre - Tower I (22-storey) and Tower II (20-storey) are cast-in-place concrete structures with blue semi-reflective glass curtainwall. One of the distinguishing features of these office towers is the 11 degree splayed walls. The structure also includes one level of underground parking, four-unit elevator bank and allowance for future pedestrian connections. The twin towers were designed by Cochrane Lavalin Inc and owed by Harvard Developments Inc. - A Hill Company

The Hill family's business history started in 1903 with the sale of land on which the Saskatchewan Legislative Buildings are presently situated. The founding company, McCallum Hill Limited, was created in the same year by Walter H.A. Hill and E.A. McCallum. McCallum Hill Limited specialized in real estate development and insurance. Today, it is under the umbrella of The Hill Companies, along with Harvard Developments Inc., which is the primary operating entity and which focuses on real estate development, asset management and property management. All are headquartered in Regina, Saskatchewan.

The Hill Companies are a model of diversity and achievement. Over the years, the 2nd and 3rd generation owners, Fred and Paul Hill, firmly established themselves as leaders in real estate development and in the business community at a national level. In Western Canada, the Hill philosophy and personal style is legendary. In their home city of Regina, Saskatchewan, the Hills are the largest owners and managers of commercial and retail properties, controlling in excess of 3.3 million square feet.
