That portion of the skyline is much more noticeable now thanks to the Pearl, Hendrix, Symphony and Agustana towers poking above the table top.

Oddly enough, the eastern skyline is not shown... from 95-82st.

Aerials show it, but do not capture it properly.

82-124st on the north side

99st-112st on the south

This gives the north side a nearly 5.5 km long skyline east-west and the south side a 3 km long east-west skyline. Quite respectable, now to work on the depth of both!

Edmonton may have the longest skyline outside Toronto!

Over 70% of Vancouver's land is zoned for SFH's sounds restrictive but, what exactly does it all mean? How does it compare to other cities? Isn't Manhattan over 70% heritage protected?

It's brought up in Toronto all the time as being responsible for expensive housing costs than runaway speculation. Exorbinant real estate values compounded by high construction costs doesn't make small scale any more affordable to buy. Any development opportunity, whether a tear down zoned for multi-family or one zoned for a mcmansion will sell at a huge premium value. There seems to be no limit to the speculators paying top dollar whether you have 100 or 10,000 development sites.

Yes and no.

Yes, there are numerous sites with buildings you cannot remove or modify BUT AFAIK all properties were given the same minimum density rights which could be sold or transferred to other properties. Those tall-thin new towers are typically using density rights transferred from dozens of other properties (largely heritage properties) transferred to a single location where they build the building.

So, they were effectively given the value of the maximum density despite not being able to build to it.

Ottawa, April 2020.


https://apt613.ca/video-of-the-week-empty-ottawa/

Rough estimate would be 2014.

View from Booth Street bridge, June 2020. Construction equipment above the tunnel portal will be the site of the new library. Land to the immediate right should be redeveloped within 5-10 years. Clearing to CBD in the middle, two towers u/c and three more are proposed.

Queensway bridge replacement over the Trillium line, with the Hintonburg and Tunney's Pasture area skyline visible to the upper left.
