It's set to continue excavation/construction right after the Olympics are over. The project has also been granted an additional 16ft, bringing the total height to 616ft.

These are good projects for Vancouver. I know this has been said numerous times, but something really needs to be done about these height restrictions. Vancouver has enough density, let's start adding some 700 or 800 footers.

Not going to happen!

Vancouver just underwent another major study to reevaluate height limits and has concluded that there will not be any height increases allotted.

Perhaps in another 25 years the city will reassess the height limits and allow for an increase or two.

how come vancouver's buildings are all so flippin beautiful?! there's not a single city in the planet that compares... they might lack the height of chicago and certainly doesn't come close to new york in terms of size, but golly those buildings are so beeeauuteeefulll!!! forget about the backdrop.... any skyline with such modern beautiful buildings in any place in the world would be just as nice.

What is that on the top of the Shangri-la?

Is that a small crane on top of the Shangri-la? It sure looks like one and it's been there for a long time - too long. I thought the building was finished?

^I agree, but unfortunately it never was an actual concept for this project... just something dleung cooked up to generate discussion on the Vancouver subforum.
Unfortunately I doubt Vancouver will see anything this daring anytime soon.
