Description
- Shaw Tower forms an interesting combination of highrise residences and corporate headquarters. The lower 16 floors are offices occupied by Shaw Communications, the upper 24 floors are residential in use.

- Although the Shaw Tower was announced as Vancouver's tallest building, its roof is actually slightly shorter than One Wall Centre's roof. It is one of the eight buildings which match the 450 foot height limit.
