"No. 8 has long been regarded as the luckiest number in Chinese culture. With pronunciation of 'Ba' in Chinese, no. 8 sounds similar to the word 'Fa', which means to make a fortune. It contains meanings of prosperity, success and high social status too, so all business men favor it very much. " -

Why doesn't Richmond Hill want anything taller?
Because Richmond Hill, along with Oakville, both consider themselves "towns" still. It's actually kind of absurd. Markham was also a "town" until about 3 years ago, but at least they finally changed that. It speaks to the residents perceptions of where they live and what the "town" should look like.
 
Looks like an awful mishmash of a building. The addy might signify luck but the appearance of this thing is anything but fortunate.
