Unlike other cities, Canberra’s skyscape is lacking those super tall skyscrapers typical of bigger cities. We have had laws since the 70s restricting the height of new buildings to no higher than the Australian War Memorial or Parliament House. However some developers want this restriction lifted to encourage more higher density living in the city, following the advice of a Canadian expert.
Of course there are many voices saying it will damage Canberra’s character and compromise the ‘Griffin Legacy’.
By the way, has anyone ever lived in Vancouver, the “world’s most livable city”?
