No shortage of construction here (mostly infill) but sadly our tallest here is the Louis-Boheme, 28 floors and its topped off. Once this building will be finished I believe our tallest will be some barn in the west-island or some triplex on Rene-Levesque....

After the Louis-Boheme, the tallest U/C in Greater Montreal will be the Blu Rivage in Longueuil at 25 stories.

It's hard to get anything over 30 floors to be built in Montreal.

These 5 towers are approved too: I don't know which one is going to be our tallest U/C between those or Altitude Montréal... Probably Altitude. (~115m)

I don't ever want to see something that ridiculously tall in Calgary, we don't need anything like that and it would just ruin our skyline.

It sure would, but a well located 300m would be nice.

Maybe even a 350m!

I like how Canadian skylines just have a lot of smaller towers, not a few really tall ones. Makes for a more visually pleasing skyline IMO.

Yes, you're right, it would. But in Shanghai it's perfectly suited to the skyline, given its location near a 421m, 492m, and a whole bunch of 200-300m towers.

A nice 300-350m tower would look REALLY good in Calgary, in the right location.

Edmonton has Epcor Tower under construction. Will be about 450 feet/137m, or Edmonton second tallest.

Any pics of Epcor? I haven't seen how it's doing in a long time.

I thought it was confirmed to go to 149m, making it slightly taller than our current tallest?

Here is a photo of the new courthouse U/C in Moncton. At five storeys, it is currently the tallest building under construction in the city.

There are other five storey buildings under construction in Moncton as well (it seems like a popular number), including the new Casino NB hotel. The casino is the most expensive project under way in the city at present, with a value of about $100M.
