List of tallest buildings in Ottawa–Gatineau

This is a list of the tallest buildings in OttawaGatineau over 90 m (295 ft) tall (Canada's National Capital Region). Until 1965, buildings in downtown Ottawa were limited to 45.5 metres (149 ft) so that the Peace Tower, part of the parliament buildings, could dominate the skyline.[1] The National Capital Region has a complicated system of protected views that is governed by the National Capital Commission and adhered to by the City of Ottawa.[2] Protected view planes limit the height of buildings in certain areas of the downtown core of Ottawa to ensure clear sight of the Parliament Buildings.

The tallest building in the national capital region is the 45-storey, 143 m (469 ft) tall Claridge Icon, which is located in Ottawa's Little Italy.

The tallest development in the national capital region is the 65-storey Trinity Station 1 of the 900 Albert development by Trinity Group [3]. Upon its completion, Tower 1 will be 232.6 m (763 ft) tall and become the tallest building in Ottawa-Gatineau.[4]
