The architecture of St. John's has a specific feel that is different from the rest of Canada, and many of its buildings are fragments of its history as one of the primary British colonial capitals. Structures were built in various styles depending on the materials available to build them.
St. John's started as a fishing settlement for European fishermen and was comprised mainly of the homes of fishermen, sheds, storage shacks, and wharves which were constructed out of wood.
Just like many other cities during that time, the Industrial Revolution took off and new methods and materials for construction were introduced, which consequently changed the landscape as the city grew.
The Great Fire of 1892 destroyed much of the downtown, and most of the residential and other wood-based buildings date from this era.
St. John's is reminiscent of a mini San Francisco because of the hilly terrain and steep maze of residential streets. Downtown, the houses in are typically painted in brilliant colours, which has earned the area being nicknamed Jelly Bean Row.
The city has enforced rigid heritage regulations in the downtown area, which includes restrictions on the height of buildings. This governance has caused a squabble over the years, with a shortage of hotel rooms and office space in the area because the proposals put forward do not meet the current height regulations.
Heritage advocates argue the current regulations should be enforced while others believe the regulations should be relaxed to encourage economic development. In order to meet the need for more office space downtown without jeopardizing St. John's heritage, the city council has amended heritage regulations, which originally restricted height to 15 metres in the area of land on Water Street between Bishop's Cove and Steer's Cove, to create the "Commercial Central Retail – West Zone". With the new zoning, this will allow for buildings of greater height.
