I'd love to see what Diane Watts does in terms of putting tall buildings in Surrey. Would love to see a 90+ storey building in the core of Whalley or Guildford.
I'd want to have at least 2-4 200-250 meter towers first before constructing a super tall.

well, there is a supertall underconstruction in SF and Seattle could build one easily if there is a market for it. Vancouver isn't big enough and also its stupid height restriction won't allow anything higher than 200m. I'll bet Saskatoon might get one before us.

somrach1! you are so wrong! SF and Seattle and San Diego and Portland and Vancouver all can build Supertalls! they just have height restrictions! Weak ground and earthquake's don't matter,that's why they build foundations! the tallest building in Seattle[Columbia Center] can withstand a magnitude 9.0+ earthquake!

The west coast has a lot of supertall's being built,2 in L.A. 1 in SF and 1 in seattle [ i'm talking 300m +. ]

Vancouver is jam-packed with Vancouver specials and old Vancouver Craftsmans that need to make way for some apartment buildings. Vancouver is running out of space and single-family homes are not going to be the way of the future if people want to live close to the downtown core.

As much as I like the old style homes. I spent my 20s in a Vancouver Craftsman in Kits, I prefer to see what development can bring.
