King George Tower was a proposed skyscraper set to rise in Surrey, British Columbia near the King George Station. 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. The skyscraper will also have the most floors of any building in Canada, exceeding the 72 floors of the First Canadian Place in Toronto. 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.
