Vancouver has good density below 500 feet, (sorry I know it is metric there), but only two above that height. The other criticism of Vancouver is that too many buildings look alike. I don't necessarily agree, but I understand that thinking. And no supertalls in the pipeline, perhaps due to zoning, not sure. Toronto is much taller, and has an 800+ building under construction.

I can't help but notice that Montreal, atleast from this photo, looks like Portland, OR on steroids.

yes, both downtowns have small hills as the backdrop and rivers on the front, but in term of skyline, Portland has only 2 towers are 160m tall and they are the pink tower and the Wells Fargo.
