When you mix Toronto and Vancouver’s world class skylines, you get a city that looks like something being built in China right now.
What Toronto lacks is natural beauty. You can’t beat the majestic mountainous background of Vancouver.
What Vancouver lacks is a handful of tall signature office towers. We’ve had opportunities to build some but those have been declined by the city’s view protection policy.
Not many Vancouver buildings can be seen in the image. However, if you look closely you can see the One Wall Centre tower.
If you look at this photo, you can see that a few tall towers will not kill our views of the mountains. What it does do is enhance the skyline.
When you mix the country’s economic centre with the country’s most desired city to live in (for many not all) you’ll most likely get even higher real estate prices.
