Living Shangri-la is a mixed-use skyscraper in Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia. It is the tallest building in both Metro Vancouver and British Columbia.[3] The tower has a 5-star hotel and the offices on the first 15-floors. The rest of the tower has condominium apartment units occupying it.[3] It is the 22nd tallest building in Canada. The cost of the building is $350 million.[3][4] The tower crane that is on the top of the building was fitted with Christmas lights on November 13 and was the tallest crane that was illuminated in the city of Vancouver in 2007.[3]

The building was featured as the headquarters of the fictional company ENCOM International in the 2010 movie Tron: Legacy.[5]
