How come Vancouver has such a dense highrise skyline, for such a small city? Is it because it doesnt have a big sprawl like other N American cities?
A great loking city btw

harberk- Vancouver isn't that small- however, the main reason why the city is so dense, is because it is an island, like Manhattan- thus the high concentrations of condo towers.

I'm not sure the title of this thread makes sense. Will all these projects make that much of a difference? It looks like vancouver will have even more of what it already has.

Sprawl still dominates most of Vancouver, though the extent of it is not as extreme as say Pheonix or Houston.

The following are sprawling pics of Surrey, a suburb of Vancouver...







You could access more pics of Vancouver via this thread:

The skyline photos show only downtown Vancouver. It's a peninsula that measures around 6-9 square km in size (that includes Stanley Park), and the immediate vicinity contains only 5-10% of the Lower Mainland's total population.

Vancouver is not an Island. It is a peninsula. The reason for its density is mainly because of smart city planning.

Vancouver wont look much different in 2010. Most of the projects are unremarkable little buildings the likes of which the city already has too many of. There are a few very exciting projects underway and proposed, but Vancouver needs a lot more before it will make a real impact.

I just have to say that the first photo of the cityscape is absolutely breath taking. I need to visit sometime in the near future!

Nice list of projects the only thing that Vancouver needs is a couple of super talls office ones of course. But stills have a bery nice density for the city. I visited Vancouver last year and I loved. Is a little big city.
