Remember when the Shangri-La was built in 2008 and it was this huge deal about how it was Vancouver's tallest tower? Phrases like "defining the skyline" and "precedent setting" were thrown around a lot. This comparison shows how Vancouver's tallest tower looks next to those around the world – Dubai's tallest tower makes the Shangri-La look downright Chihuahua-sized. Vancouver towers will never reach those heights because of the city's height restrictions, but mountain views are not a bad consolation.
