"On Thursday, council will consider a staff recommendation to raise the maximum building height in the central business district outside of view corridors to 700 feet from 600. They're also suggesting the city raise to 500 feet from 375 feet the maximum height along the Burrard Street corridor, which affects the Davie/Burrard area.
In October, Reliance Properties and Jim Pattison Developments unveiled a proposal to build a 48-storey, 466-foot tower on Pattison's Toyota dealership as part of its Burrard Gateway project. The height limit is 375 feet."
Taller and taller buildings have been coming before the city council, including one that rises 50 feet higher than even the new restrictions would allow.
