While obviously not the biggest skyline in Canada, Vancouver certainly is emerging as the most picturesque and exciting skyline.

kinda reminds of this tower. This building has lights instead of reflectors. Still cool.

Cool tower. The cladding looks really cool. I wasn't aware this tower was under construction. Nice to see it's well underway. Vancouvers skyline will look brilliant when this and 1133 West Georgia are complete.

I believe the number 4 is unlucky in China and Vancouver is home to many Chinese.

^ that's roughly 1/3rd of the height, or about 180-220 feet....just a guess. the tower's height is 640 feet.
