Unlike many major metropolitan cities, Vancouver is constricted as to how tall buildings can be, which is due to the City’s prohibitive view cones put in place.

To date, we only have one building at 200 metres in height – the Shangri-La Hotel on West Georgia and Thurlow. That being said, we have eight tall buildings that are ushering in a new era of “tall” buildings in a city known for a table-top skyline.

From lowest to highest, here are the eight tallest buildings under construction in Vancouver right now.
