An awesome tower, it's simple but it's very good looking.

This is an awesome tower, the renderings make it look quite ethereal.

Can someone tell me what the current height restrictions are in Vancouver? 640+ feet is impressive for Vancouver, but still much lower than the tallest in Seattle and L.A.

The absolute height restriction is 600 feet, but it is only for certain sites that do not block view corridors. Shangri-la was an exception at 640 feet.




Across the street from the Shangri-la is another 600 footer, already approved, known as 1133 West Georgia it will be home to Ritz Carlton:

The huge block of vacant land across the street from the tower is the current construction site of Shangri-la.

I actually think they're quite neat. They are holograms and change colour depending on the angle you are looking at it - can be yellow, green, pink, red, blue.

I think they are really cool. They also give texture to the facade.
