What about Hamilton, London and K-W?

Ottawa's tallest currently under construction is EDC (Export Development Canada). At 78m it's another stumpy box for our CBD, but a nice box and a LEED Gold box at that!

Current (just reached ground level):

Yes, you're right, it would. But in Shanghai it's perfectly suited to the skyline, given its location near a 421m, 492m, and a whole bunch of 200-300m towers.

A nice 300-350m tower would look REALLY good in Calgary, in the right location.

99% sure the Hilton in Hamilton is not under construction. I don't know what is the tallest either

London - a toss up between 4 12 storey apartment blocks (60,70 capulet, 180 mill, 1503 Hyde)
Windsor - 12 storeys "Amica at Windsor"
Brampon - 27 storeys "Park Place"
Richmond Hill - 14 storeys "The Richmond"
Markham - 13 storeys "Eden Park Towers"
Vaughan - 18 storey "Centre Park Towers"

We have a 31 storey building approved...

Wow O-Town!, I had never seen these renderings. It's nicer than I had expected. The feds are still creating the boxes for downtown Ottawa but at least, with this one, they're trying something different... or should I say, they're trying something for once. I bet that top corner terrace will be a sweet spot for an espresso bar in the summer. mmm... food for thought.

I guess we can have a bit of hope for the other 4-5 buildings they will soon need.

It's hard to get anything over 30 floors to be built in Montreal.

These 5 towers are approved too: I don't know which one is going to be our tallest U/C between those or Altitude Montréal... Probably Altitude. (~115m)

I thought it was confirmed to go to 149m, making it slightly taller than our current tallest?

Here is a photo of the new courthouse U/C in Moncton. At five storeys, it is currently the tallest building under construction in the city.

There are other five storey buildings under construction in Moncton as well (it seems like a popular number), including the new Casino NB hotel. The casino is the most expensive project under way in the city at present, with a value of about $100M.

The diagram for Edmonton has EPCOR listed as 149.4m, making it taller than Manulife place at 146m.
