King George Tower was a proposed skyscraper set to rise in Surrey, British Columbia near the King George Station.[3] At a height of 274.3 m (900 ft) with 81 stories, the mixed-use building will be significantly taller than any highrise building in Surrey, the Vancouver area and Western Canada.[2][1] The skyscraper will also have the most floors of any building in Canada, exceeding the 72 floors of the First Canadian Place in Toronto.[2] However, due to the proposed height of the project, there is concern that the skyscraper may interfere with air traffic heading to Vancouver International Airport.[1]
