Stephen Avenue Place is an office and retail hub in downtown Calgary, Alberta. Located at 700 2nd Street SW, it stands at 155 metres (509 feet) or 41 storeys tall and was the tallest building in Calgary at the time of its completion.

Formerly known as the Scotia Centre, the building was purchased by Slate Asset Management in March 2018 and is currently undergoing a redevelopment project that will involve significant renovations to the three story retail podium and building amenities. The project will feature three restaurants run by Concorde Group and Oliver & Bonacini.

Stephen Avenue Place is named for George Stephen, the first Baron Mount Stephen, who was the visionary, businessman and financier behind the creation of the Canadian Pacific Railway.[2][3]
