Saskatoon is the largest city in Saskatchewan, Canada. In Saskatoon, there are seven buildings that stand taller than 60 metres (198 ft). The tallest building in the city is the 24-storey, 79.2 m (260 ft) La Renaissance Apartments.[1] The second-tallest building in the city is the Hallmark Place, standing at 78.8 m (259 ft) tall with 27 storeys.

As of February 2011, the city contains four skyscrapers over 70 m (230 ft) and 44 high-rise buildings that exceed 35 m (115 ft) in height.[2]

The tallest development that it slated to go under construction in Saskatoon is the River Landing Nutrien tower. At 94 m (308 ft) tall, this tower will become the tallest in the province when completed.[3][4] As of June 2012, there are only 4 high-rises under construction, approved for construction, or proposed for construction in Saskatoon.[2]

The Saskatoon skyline can be photographed from various angles; since the Delta Bessborough is one of the most distinct buildings it is common to photograph the skyline from the east shore of the South Saskatchewan River centered on the Bessborough.[5][6][7][8]
