Wow, cool!

In every man lives a little boy. And a site like is for the little boy. It contains a rather scary amount of information about a vast number of tall buildings around the world, including quite a number in metro Vancouver, where I live. It revealed something I didn't know about Vancouver itself:

Per capita few cities in North America have more residential hi-rise towers than Vancouver. [...] The vast majority of Vancouver's 500 tall buildings are apartment condos and more and more are either under construction or on the drawing boards. There seems to be no end to the trend for living downtown that began way back in 1962.

I have friends and clients with an office in the Sun Tower, which although not particularly tall by modern standards, is still one of the city's most distinctive structures.
