SSP is as close to accurate as possible ... I made sure of it!

Cities/12+ storeys
Toronto - 1677
Vancouver - 626
Montreal - 500
Calgary - 227
Edmonton - 224

The boom in Calgary over the last several years is killing you!

Montreal would be at around 600-650. Maybe 700 but that's a stretch.

These still fall short of the 1,718 and 235 listed by Emporis, but the numbers are otherwise higher on SSP (as higher=more accurate in this case).

Sorry to step in here.. but emporis database reports:

Calgary 221 High Rise
Edmonton 235 High Rise

Calgary - 21 U/C
Edmonton - 8 U/C

When all is finished being built - Calgary will apparently have one more tower than Edmonton. See emporis.com for their definition of Tower.

Emporis is by far the most inaccurate site for skyscrapers. As more and more buildings are added to SSP's lists, it will be the primary source for skyscrapers for most cities.

What is the point of this discussion, in it's current form?

Calgary has nice shinny office towers, and Edmonton doesn't have as many.

Calgary has some more height, a big obsession for those in Calgary compensating for something else.

Point? There is none. So everyone (cold, johnnyc) untie the knot in your collective panties.

And yes, that post was an insult, though, not direct, it certain was there, and intentional.

Far far far behind every other city in Canada, but only if looking at Vancouver, Toronto or Calgary? Didn't realize these were the only cities in Canada. Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Ottawa, montreal, London, Hamilton, etc, pay attention, according to JohnnyC, you don't exist in Canada.

I'm a little confused. SSP lists a highrise as either greater than 12 stories or greater than 35m tall.

Given that definition and consolidated to CMA (roughly):
Toronto - 2140
Vancouver - 980
Montreal - 632
Ottawa - 398
Calgary - 262
Edmonton - 248
Hamilton - 153
Winnipeg - 141
London - 119
Halifax - 79
Kitchener - 63
Quebec City - 59
Windsor - 51
Victoria - 48
Saskatoon - 46
St. Catherines - 41
Regina - 39

You do realize a highrise on Emporis is either 12 storeys or a building with a known height above 35m

I count 226 12+ storey buildings for Edmonton and Calgary is obviously really outdated - tarjan pointe is not under construction

I do feel bad for you poor bastards up there and that fucking height limit thing...

on the bright side, Calgary would make a top ten list of cities over a million with a laughable football stadium!

I really don't see how relevant it is how many buildings over 12 floors a city has...particularly when the point of discussion seems to be something along the lines of "Calgary's soon-to-be tallest may be 300 feet taller than ours but we have a few more buildings over 12 floors than you..." followed by "no you don't..." "yes you do..." etc.

Bottom line, Edmonton is a little late out of the starting blocks but it looks like their latest proposals are getting taller - hopefully they will start to see more big boys in the years to come. You can still build to nearly 500' there, which is not too shabby at all. Look at what Vancouver did with a similar limit pre Shangri-la.

Emporis once wrote in it's intro to Vancouver that the downtown peninsula is one of the densest places on earth with more than 1 million people.
It also said that we had more skyscrapers than Toronto.

Yeah, what happened to the height limit there... has been raised to 200m or done away with completely?

^There are now special exceptions for prominent sites. As well the developers have to jump through many hoops for increased density such as superior architecture, public amenities/art, heritage density transfers etc. The city has also hinted that it will allow taller office towers in the future to deal with the lack of space downtown.

They are probably still in site prep and demo which is why it didn't update on the SSP list.
