List of tallest buildings in Abbotsford, British Columbia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

None of Abbotsford's tallest buildings are among the tallest in Canada, but are generally taller than the tallest buildings in the nearby cities of Chilliwack, Richmond and White Rock, though Surrey, Burnaby and Vancouver all have taller buildings. This may partly be explained by the fact that Abbotsford is close to Metro Vancouver but is a metropolitan area in its own right. This has spurred highrise development and the city continues to build and propose towers going even higher, prompting the creation of this list.[1]
