Close-up of Burnaby's Metrotown skyline, where the city's three tallest buildings are located.

This list of tallest buildings in Burnaby refers to the tallest buildings in the City of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. Burnaby is a city in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia located in Metro Vancouver. With an estimated population of 223,218 in 2011,[1] it is British Columbia's third-most populous municipality.[2] The city is in the midst of a massive construction boom which continues to drastically alter the city's skyline.

Having developed as a suburb of Vancouver, Burnaby's growth is attributed to its proximity to that city.[3] However, due to the price of doing business in Vancouver over the last several decades, Burnaby has developed a rather large corporate culture. Burnaby's extensive corporate employment opportunities differentiate it from most suburban bedroom communities.

Burnaby has an easily identifiable skyline with approximately 30 buildings over 100 m (328 ft) tall including under construction/proposed. The city has 4 separate skylines, of which Metrotown is by far the largest and is currently seeing the most development, the others are Brentwood, Highgate, and Lougheed. The tallest completed building is Altus at 187.8 m (including spire) tying it for 2nd tallest building in British Columbia.
