Downtown Ottawa Factoid: The towers of downtown Ottawa are not as tall as their counterparts in other cities, as legislation prevented buildings being built taller than the Peace Tower until the 1970s, so as not to overshadow the Parliament Buildings. Today however, several buildings are taller than the Peace Tower, with the tallest being the 29-storey Place de Ville (Tower C) at 112 metres (367 ft).
