Ottawa is a small city. This city isn't about tall skyscrapers and it shouldn't try to impress by building them. It will never match the Hong Kongs and Torontos of this world by building tall. Ottawa impresses with it's setting, it's elegance, it's canal, monuments, museums, and grand buildings. The gothic revival of the Parliament buildings is beautiful and the Canadian chateau style of the Chateau Laurier, is a uniquely Canadian architecture.

Ottawa would do well to continue with this architecture and build office towers that pay hommage to this rather than the typical office block one can see in a hundred other cities. This is a capital and it should strive for something a cut above and something not found elsewhere. 400-600 foot Canadian chateau style/office block hybrids would definitely compliment what is already there. It would also be unique in the world.

Not very high, but the density combined with what seems like a lively downtown. Poor modern architecture unfortunately. 7.5/10

Ottawa: Elegant city, but for skyline, a 6/10.
