Even San Francisco, the most boutique-y city out there, allows for limited supertall development. Nearly every city has height limits, but I've never seen such a low (600 foot) limit for a major city except when mandated by the FAA or something.
Well Montreal, Canada's #2 metropolis, basically has the same height limit as Vancouver ie 200m.

in the early 2000' s and earlier

#2 Montreal
#3 Vancouver
#4 Ottawa
#5 Edmonton

all had height limits
