In my opinion it definitely should get some skyscrapers. Every city looks better with skyscrapers than it looks without them

No. Not every city is meant to have skyscrapers. In fact, 99% of the world's cities look better with none or fewer.

Not Washington D.C, but Baltimore should, it is a major port city after all just like Dubai, New York, Hong Kong, and others.

I definately think high-rise/skyscraper development should be encouraged in other metropolitan centers such as Arlington/Rockville/Bethesda.

I feel like there are a couple sites in downtown/convention center DC where the buildings could go a bit higher, maybe to 17-18 floors, but overall, the city proper should be kept free of highrises.

The skyscrapers should be reserved for the likes of Arlington, Alexandria, Rosslyn, Crystal City, Rockville, Bethesda, etc.

Well Beijing shows that a skyline can really fit in great into a city that has a lot of monuments, governmental buildings etc. but i do not think that DC has the need for any tall skyline, after all it is not that big of a city to begin with. but i really would not mind some skyscrapers in the city

When I walked or drove around Washington DC I felt there was a cornice above my head. Jumping from block to block from building to building. Not loud or obvious but thinking now, way over here on the far side of the world. What's a cornice......the ceiling. Washington has a nice ceiling.........
