Many cities are in danger of looking like a jumbled mess. Hopefully over time the designs will become more refined.

With all due respects European cities are much older and hence have evolved along different lines than cities in the new world.

You see massive Toronto ..

I see a boxes then a massive dip into surbubia and grassland.

For density it would have been better if they could be build in Porta Nuova.
I agree. There will be two clusters in Milan. Porta Nuova and City Life. City Life being composed not only by the three landmark towers, but also by 3-4 highrises about 100-130 m tall

With all due respect European cities don't have a century of experience building skyscrapers. There seems to be a tendency towards the trendy and gimmicks. I realize it boils down to personal preference, but some of these skylines already look too busy. Frankfurt is a smaller skyline, but its classic and elegant. Rotterdam and Canary Wharf are great as well.

Regarding Toronto, you should take a closer look. It's 4 km from the lake to Yorkville and highrise buildings the whole length; that's equivalent to having high rises from the City of London to Canary Wharf. Then there are other clusters many kilometres further out.

Boxes? I assume you're referring to the Mies van der Rohe and IM Pei bank towers. They are considered classics in architectural circles. Btw, southern Ontario is mostly farm land and you have to travel through 30 km of city before you hit it.
