The City of Moncton and its metropolitan area (Dieppe and Riverview) is the largest in New Brunswick, Canada. Its skyline is dominated by the Bell Aliant Tower, constructed in 1971 at a height of 127 m (417 ft - Equiv. to approx. 32 floors), the tallest free-standing structure in all four Atlantic provinces. The tallest building in the city is the 20-storey, 80.8 m (265 ft) Assumption Place. The complex, with its two adjoining mid rise structure, was completed in 1972. The second tallest building in the city is the Blue Cross Centre, standing at only 43 m (141 ft) tall with 9 storeys. As of February 2011[update], the city contains 1 skyscraper over 80 m (262 ft) and 9 high-rise buildings that exceed 35 m (115 ft) in height. The city has more mid rise structures spread out in the urbanized region, i.e. 20 m to 35 m, than the high rises.
This list ranks Moncton high-rises and skyscrapers that stand at least 35 metres (115 ft) tall, based on CTBUH height measurement standards. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts. Freestanding observation and/or telecommunication towers, while not habitable buildings, are included for comparison purposes; however, they are not ranked. One such tower is the Bell Aliant Tower.
