Nice and well defined skyline!! The buildings do not look boring at all.. (with the exclusion of the apartments in pic3 though ) Lacks height

7.5/10

8/10. I really like the way it all fits together. Looks great, especially those aerials.

Love my city, but we need a few more towers before I'll be truly happy. I generally like our downtown, however the dirtiness of the ultra-old Exchange district is disgusting. Alot of great charachter buildings there, with loads of potential, and alot are now just beginning to be tapped in to. I believe in 10 years or so, the Exchange will be totally revamped, making downtown a great place to be.

C'mon Hydro....think TALL!

7.5

Has a nice, dense tallish cluster there, but as a whole, the skyline seems a bit too spread out, with midrisers popping up all over the place. Needs some more density and definition by building up on those ugly carparks to give it a better proile. Still actually surprisingly large for what I expected of Winnipeg.

it may not have alot of tall buildings but those medium tall skyscrapers add to the skyline.
Those two sets of tall buildings reminds me of our downtown. Except with thinner and more modern skyscrapers.
It is also nice that they are connected by skyscrapers.
7.5/10
More than 7 and almost an 8

I agree, the parking lot situation is sad. However, the city is currently amending zoning by-laws to allow for more mixed-use projects, and is making it easier for developers to cut through the red tape and get their proposals through the approval process. Supposedly it's modelled after Chicago's plan. Winnipeg apparently is quite well-known by developers for dragging them through months and months of bull before most of them end up pulling out and scrapping projects all-together.

I really think this will create an influx of new projects, large, medium, and small into our downtown, slowly filling up those ugly car parks.

I'll give it an 8.

Very decent skyline for a city of less than a million. Having the towers in a similar style also helps to that clean look.
It will become close to being perfect if it gets added a tower of at least 200 m in a dark colour.

5/10 Not bad, and will improve if that 600ft + weird slanting building gets built.

I love the Peg - it's got a great feel to it. Back in the 30's and 40's is was a very prominent Canadian city (moreso than it is today). It's definitely bouncing back... which is awesome. It's got a great lived-in feeling which adds a lot of character to it.

Skyline: 7
