Ottawa may not build the tallest, but it has great density, as this photo demonstrates:




Downtown Ottawa definitely has that 'big city' feel.

^concur about the density. I love downtown Ottawa.

Go regina!!! That tiny city is getting an impressive core. They apparently have a very aggresive plan to get more people downtown.

I've added in a list of cities in Canada that are eligable for inclusion on the list but have not presented any information yet.

For the most part it is incorporated cities, however due to some provinces not having formal cities I also included some communities with a population of over 50'000. All provinces and territories (excl. PEI and NS) have a community that can still be added. Also in municipalities individually recognized communities over 50'000 are welcome to be added. And if there is a project worth listing I'm open to adding in counties that have over 50'000 (at my discretion though). The county will not be listed if a town/city in it is already on the list. An example of that would be King's County here in Nova Scotia. It has over 50'000 people but no community within it is listed.

AFAIK, Fredericton's tallest is an apartment building on Victoria Street at 7fl. Prep work/design is being done on an 11 storey hotel downtown.

This is probably the tallest underconstruction in St. John's. It's a hotel condominium that is 9 floors and 13.9 meters high, due to it sloping down a hill it has several different heights to meet the city's requirements.

^That height seems very low for a 9 storey building. Is it because the building is never actually 9 storeys from top to ground?

I'm not exactly sure how it works but where it is on the slope no part of the building is actually over 5 storeys though the total number of storeys is 9 from the very bottom floor on Water Street to the top floor on Duckworth.

Architype had on theSt. John's Project Threads main page that "the building proposal is 7+ stories at maximum cross section (approx. 19 meters), with a total of 9 levels on sloping ground." but the building was modified a few months ago as well. I'll see if he can explain it better because I'm just confusing myself now.

One less surface parking lot downtown, anyways.
Wow, that's hideous. It's not even built yet and i'm wondering what the hell the architect was thinking?

For Hamilton, I think the Hamilton Grand is the tallest under construction. Last time I past the site, they seemed to be starting excavation work. I believe that it will be 15 floors when completed.

Not sure if you count excavation work as under construction or not until they start pouring the concrete. If excavation work doesn't count, then Stone Church is still the tallest. Good Shepherd Square is also under construction and has two 8 floor towers which are the same height as Stone Church.
