Not at all. They are all in Metro Vancouver. I've been consistent in referencing metro area from the start.

Well then, why isn't Toronto in the same category? All the towers in Mississauga and Vaughan should be added to Toronto's total.

I have. I'll explain.

"(metro)"

"I don't know if the city can do it alone."

this isn't as clear as I made an error. It is supposed to be in alphabetical order except for suburban cities that are separately grouped with their main cities.

To think Toronto has 28 towers under construction over 150 meters and there is a chance for another 5 to 15 starts this year boggles the mind. With a 3 year completion timeframe, that means 7 to 10 completions per year. And will be the case for the next 3 or 4 years at least.

Need over 10 a year to catch Chicago in a reasonable time frame.

That will help, but Chicago is building a fair amount too...

Chicago has 10 U/C right now over 150 meters. One of them is massive, like 362 meters. Chicago has only 36 towers UC over 12 floors.

However Toronto has 28 UC / (over 150 meters) as we noted and around 150 towers over 12 floors under construction in total.

A couple more years and it'll look like this perhaps:

A couple more years and we won't even recognize Toronto anymore.

Still seems strange.
Not surprised at all, until only just over a decade ago nothing that tall was allowed. Vancouver's first 150m tower, One Wall, was built in 2001. The next allowed to break that plane was Shangri-La in 2008.

It's only very recently Vancouver allowed buildings over 150M and they are still heavily constrained.

Burnaby on the other hand will have more than Calgary in 10 years.

Edmonton is looking great! Amazing how a few towers can really beef up the skyline...

yes, I would think it is the most improved Canadian skyline of the past decade.

I don't see it. The Ice District pairing are so tall they throw off the balance. It'll take a half dozen more 150 plus metre towers for those to begin paying off. The dozen other towers to go up are skyline infill at best. Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, etc. have all seen more dramatic and complimentary change.

Maybe, but the skyline went from mediocre and seemingly static to impressive. Hence the improvement. Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary were already impressive. Winnipeg (to me) was also more impressive.

Height is very important to skyline aesthetics but, density takes the cake for me. The Pearl did to Oliver what the Ice District pairing will do to downtown. It's so dominant it makes everything else lesser than it actually is. Simlar situation with Toronto's skyline circa 2001. All the dominant towers were so closely packed in the CBD that it made the skyline seem very small compared to the stats.

Fair enough, I too take density > height. Certainly for making a city core more interesting, density rules the roost.

e.g., I've been to Paris 8 times, and haven't yet made the (short) trek to La Defense, as I would rather wander the streets of the old core than gaze at relatively banal skyscrapers.

They're nice when you look down the Champs-Élysées though.
