Nice Skyline, could be bigger, but theyre working on that so it should be much more dense and taller in the coming years.

I don't have the time right now, I'm at work but we need more photos of the skyline to give everyone a better perspective. Plus that is an older pic. If you took a photo from that same spot today it would be much more impressive. There is a 470 foot Hotel, a 30 floor condo tower, four 22 or 24 floor condo towers, and a nice hotel u/c that is popping up above the convention center. I believe they would all be visible from that spot.

I'll try and post some other pics in here soon.

Now I know why it's said that S. Diego looks like Perth, both are almost EQUAL, both of them even have a "triangle-top" building!

8 to S. Diego, but I bet the city has much more to see

Allright I've got some time to add some nice photos for everyone to get a better feel for the skyline!

Here is a great shot courtesy of mizago from the Coronado Bridge:



A close up of the Marina District from fflint:



A good night shot from Upward:



Also from Upward taken from Harbor Island:



At dusk:



I'll finish with an old yet colorful shot from Harbor Island (Note this one is missing 3 substantial towers)



I hope these gave you a better perspective on the ever changing San Diego skyline!

Just a couple more shots to add. These two
pics are from angles not yet shown on this
thread. The first is looking from the west out
on San Diego Bay it shows off the skyline nicely




This shot was taken from Point Loma with a zoom,
the mountain backdrop is very visible here:
