No,it would not be spectacular.NY was spectacular in 1930 but not today.These ugly towers like 420 Park Avenue are destroying the city.Buildings like Chrysler Building etc. will be destroyed because you dont see these buildings anymore.They are hiding becuse of ugly towers like Central Park Antenne and Nordstrom Antenne.NY is dead.

Ugyl shit towers.

If you dont see the difference and see,that the new towers has no architecture,you have no plan about architecture.


And what is good if city XY has the biggest Skyline with 1000 piece of 1000+towers and the other city has 500 500+ towers!?Hardly one lives there theye are all places of banks and speculants.It is not an advantage for a city,just for people who buy an apartment for 100 billion dollars and never live there.There are hundreds of great Skylines worldwide,for example the Skyline of LA is great and they dont need hundred another towers.It is good as it is.Every city with hundreds of skyscrapers look like a mass animal husbandry.Chinese cities(sorry but it is so) are sooo ugly and the most of asian cities.Grey blocks,where everyone has 20 square meter in the sky.It is not a human life.1000 people live next to you,1000 over you,1000 under you.Bad Air etc.So i cannot understand how a human can say,that this is beautifoul and great.

Contrary to popular belief, towers are built to satisfy a demand not to make pretty skyline shots for tourists. I love the 1920-1930s towers of north America too but I also don't want our cities turning into museums stuck in time. They must continually evolve if they want to remain vibrant, efficient, centres of prosperity.

That is probably what people said back in the 1930's when Empire State, Chrysler, etc. were proposed and/or being built.

sorry to say but 432 DID ruin a bit NYs skyline.... it will never be famous as chrysler or ESB, its just a simple box with squared windows, even a 13 year old can design that tower in google sketchup... I love NY's architecture and skyline but I really HATE 432 Park.... just my opinion however I dont think the other projects like verre or central park tower will ruin NYs skyline, the contrary it will improve and make it more futuristic, cant wait for them to be built!

Those 1920s-1930s towers are a bonus for any skyline that has them, which is very few. Frankly, they are still the star attractions for many. When I went to Chicago I found the Temple Buiding, Board of Trade, Tribune Tower and Mathis Tower to be much much impressive than some buildings 2-3x their height.

What adds to their star power is rarity. In 1940 the Top 100 Tallest Skycrapers came from just a small subset of cities:
#1 New York (57/100)
#2 Chicago (19/100)
#3 Pittsburgh (4/100)
#4 Detroit (3/100)
#5 Philadelphia (2/100)
#5 Cincinnati (2/100)
#5 Kansas City (2/100)
And then other cities only had 1 in the Top 100: Baltimore, Baton Rouge, Boston, Cleveland, Columbus, Hartford, Los Angeles, Newark, Oklahoma City, Seattle, Toronto

More than 3/4s were in Chicago and New York alone! 83 of the Top 100 were in Chicago, Detroit, New York, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. And 99% were in the USA. Even static cities like Kansas City still look imposing because of these older architectural gems. I would much rather have one 500' tower from 1920 in my city, than have three 500' cookie-cutter condos from 2016. And I think a lot of skylines have been ruined because of new development, like Brooklyn and their ugly condos.

I agree to an extent, but I also think that one or two standout towers (like the upcoming supertall 340 Flatbush Ave) will cause it to rebound and drastically reshape it for the better.

Nonetheless, I also think it looks quite fine currently, and I love the tremendous growth occurring now (less than stellar towers are sometimes necessary before we start getting mature-looking towers).

Chicago sprawls along the lake with a small inward cluster at the Loop, whereas Toronto is more of an expanding "T" that has a base around Bay & King and then sprawls inland up through to Bloor and then tapers outwards at major cross-streets. Viewed from the north, Toronto's skyline is way more impressive because you see the depth.

I'm actually not a huge fan of Chicago's skyline expressly for this reason. One minute you've got the dense Loop and the next it becomes a sprawl of disjointed low-rises and a messy grid, whereas Toronto tends to gradually shorten along thoroughfares outwards from the spine. With the mid- and sometimes high-rise booms along King, Queen, Adelaide and Richmond, it's "bulking up," just as a number of new developments will fill in the gaps along Yonge. Once that's in place, I think the criticism of Toronto will dissipate.
Directional bias is a kind of convoluted viewpoint when criticizing skylines.. if you looked at Toronto from the east or west.. the up and down building clusters pretty much mirror the skyline of Chicago when looking from the east and west. I don't think it matters where the vantage point starts and what direction the city sprawls... (whether you want the T to start from the south and move north; or Chicago's to start from the east and sprawl west).

Yeah I also never realised that until I rode a bike up north along the lake.

Yea most people dont know that there are many tall buildings in Chicago along the lake front north of the Loop. There are well over a hundred highrises up there that most people dont realize exist. And south of the Loop, around Hyde Park, there are a good 30-40 highrises.

Also true for Moscow/Warsaw. Both cities now have modern glass clusters and they sure are popular, especially as Europe in general has less skyscrapers and on a smaller scale compared to rest of the world, but the tourists are definitely more drawn to Seven Sisters and/or Palace of Culture. Glass boxes will keep rising for years to come everywhere, the "old style" will likely never comeback. The very few cites in the world that such towers are lucky
