If you feel like geeking-out on Vancouver high-rises – and who doesn’t? then, this is your web-site:

This site offers a detailed history and diagrams of Vancouver’s skyline from 1900 and the Holy Rosary Cathedral at 66m at the tip of the spire:

And all the way to The Trump International Hotel and Tower complete in 2016 at 187.8m. And everything in between, I do mean everything.

I was surprised to realize it’s already been 20 years since Library Square was built (84.1m).

The Shangri-La, built in 2008 at 196.9m to the roof and 200.9m to the antenna, is still the tallest.

Of the new ones under construction over the next while, the one I’m looking forward to the most is Vancouver house. Set for completion in 2018, it will be 150.3m of pretty, darn cool.
