No shortage of construction here (mostly infill) but sadly our tallest here is the Louis-Boheme, 28 floors and its topped off. Once this building will be finished I believe our tallest will be some barn in the west-island or some triplex on Rene-Levesque....

I don't ever want to see something that ridiculously tall in Calgary, we don't need anything like that and it would just ruin our skyline.

It sure would, but a well located 300m would be nice.

Maybe even a 350m!

I like how Canadian skylines just have a lot of smaller towers, not a few really tall ones. Makes for a more visually pleasing skyline IMO.

Edmonton has Epcor Tower under construction. Will be about 450 feet/137m, or Edmonton second tallest.

After the Louis-Boheme, the tallest U/C in Greater Montreal will be the Blu Rivage in Longueuil at 25 stories.

yeah but i don't consider longueuil part of montreal...i reckon le vistal (25 fl) will still be u/c or maybe by then that 31 floor hotel on cathcart will be u/c.


bedford, the Louis-Boheme is 87m by the way.

Thanks for all the numbers so far.

In terms of large(r) cities I'm still missing Victoria, Saskatoon, Regina, Windsor, Toronto and Quebec.

Quebec City tallest U/C is Complexe Jules-Dallaire... The official height is unknown I think. I would guess something around 75m.
