I'm not too surprised by Ottawa and Hamilton. They both have a lot of residential high rise buildings. I am quite a bit surprised that Vancouver doesn't have a higher proportion of residents in tall buildings though. I guess their predominance ends when you leave downtown?

Would've thought Hfx would be higher, but I guess 6% isn't too shabby. Still higher than Calgary or Edmonton...

Btw, I'm not sure how accurate this is, since the population numbers (and potentially the percentages) are pretty old.

North Bay has approximately 2000 people living in buildings with 5+ storeys, which is just under 4%.

Those numbers are a bit old, Halifax's population only adds up to 339,000 there. I guess 6% isn't too bad, but it's not especially good either . I think we'd be a little bit higher these days with the new development around Clayton Park and on the peninsula.

I couldn't find the link, but I did find this...it compares a neighbourhood in Vancouver to the rest of the city, thus revealing the statistics.

This following article states that 34% of the Vancouver housing stock is less than 5 story apartments.

And the chart that accompanies it states that 56% of Vancouverites live in apartments...Therefore does that not mean that 22% of Vancouverites live in 5+ story apartments?




Housing Profile
Structural Mix

64% of all Hastings-North dwelling units are apartments, while only 4% are semi-detached and 32% are detached housing. Figure 11 illustrates. The dominant dwelling type in the Hastings-North area is apartments less than five stories. Hastings-North has a greater percentage (41%) of this type of housing as compared with the Vancouver average (34%); however, it has slightly less than the GVRD average (43%). Many large, formerly single-family homes have been converted to multiple apartments.

Densification in the Hastings-North catchment area is expected to continue. New residential 4-storey residential developments with commercial ground floor units are occurring along Hastings. In addition, some conversion from single-family detached housing to attached and apartments is taking place north of Hastings between Nanaimo and Semlin where RM-3A zoning exists. For example, 2000 Franklin (formerly 2010 and 2018) is under development as a 10-unit townhouse complex.

Current market conditions and predictions for the foreseeable future indicate that this form of redevelopment likely will continue to take palace for several more years.

These stats are based on CMAs, so yes, I could easily see the majority of Vancouver living in 5+ storey buildings.

Obviously, the numbers in first post are for whole CMAs, not just the cities.

Toronto's number is extremely high. Although not surprising - there seems to be an infinite sea of commie blocks scattered all over the GTA.

Yes. It's nothing to brag about, although at SSP if you did a thread on the number of cockroaches in each CMA (or, say, the number of murders), the people from the town with the most would be proudly trumpeting the fact.

I like a lot of those suburban high-rise clusters, even if they were designed with the proletariat in mind. I know I’m quite fond of the mini Minsk at the end of my street.

Mississauga and Brampton have a ton of high rises especially Mississauga along its city limits along Toronto. Burlington has many south of the QEW. Brampton has many near its main shopping center. Also expect that number to grow fast.

i bet most cities in the country will have their number increase over the next few years....seems to be a trend.

winnipeg will likely move up between half and one percent in the next year, as there are more than 15 buildings (most between 7-10 storeys) either under construction or scheduled for a spring start.
