I've only started really paying attention to development in Vancouver for the past year or so and I guess that makes me a relative nooby in the Vancouver development realm which leads me to my point. Please can someone who lives in Vancouver please explain to me how the city can sustain and continue to grow its skyline of (according to emporis) 583 highrises completed with 54 under construction 21 proposed and 20 more approved. The city only has a population of 611,000 and a metro of 2.1 million. In comparison Boston has around the same population and density within the city limits and around 5 million more people in the metro than Vancouver it and only has 267 highrises completed, 14 under construction, 17 approved and 12 proposed.

Simply put how and why does a community of this size have so many highrise buildings?
