Isaidso, when I made the comment though, I hadn't even scrolled to the right yet.

Oh! I guess it is looking rather meaty these days. I find photos taken from about 40-50 floors up are the most realistic. Aerials make everything look smaller than they are, while with photos from the ground are distorted by perspective. The height of a building gets 'shrunk' as the base looks large and everything else gets continuously smaller.

I think it's the new condo towers that are actually in the financial district along with the office towers.
