hey, I really like Winnipeg its quite a good skyline for a small city.

i have visited canada once before but i only spent my time in Toronto and Niagara.

where is Winnipeg in relevence with Toronto.

on my next trip i would like to take a look around.

this city also reminds me of my own home one, when im there, Birmingham in the uk. a city which hasnt really got a magnificent skyline but a city whihc has the potential.

7/10

spankymonkey, winnipeg is pretty far away from toronto. it's right in the middle of canada east-west, and close to the american border.

A pleasant surprise. I had no idea Winnipeg had so many buildings. It does sprawl a little for the size of the population. And did I read that right, the metro area only adds an add'l 50K people. That's a nice bulk in the city limits. I rather like that. Looks like a lot of potential to be King in the Canadian Prairie. I gave Wpeg a 6.

I live in Winnipeg and I am a big fan of our skyline. There needs to be a couple more 30+ storey buildings a bit away from portage and main. Hopefully the new Manitoba Hydro building is the kind of new building we are looking for!

Reminds me a bit of Buffalo and St. Louis in that there are a lot of distingushed individual buildings that fail to cohere into a greater whole (mostly due to ill-advised urban renewal?).

Has a lovely location (nice woods!) and tremendous potential, so I give it a 7/10.

Alas, the square dome on the capitol building is fecking hideous.

I've always been impressed with the Peg's skyline. I think the skyline is at least a 5.5 / 10.

It's been a little over a year since my last visit so, I should start planning my next trip.

the paste the address in the reply box, and put these around it.[img]+[/img]

Winnipeg is like the Columbus, Ohio of Canada to me (which I love my Columbus).
Just reading on this forum it seems like some people way under estimate the city.
I like the skyline. I wish it did have a new tallest with a spire away or just outside of the big cluster. The city looks grey to me because most of the buildings are grey except TD so it would be awesome for a few more buildings with maybe a nice black glass tower and perhaps a nice shade of blue windows..... and more buildings designed outside the box shape.

Pretty darn good skyline for a city of 650,000 and a metro of 700,000, looks like a skyline for a city of 1,000,000 almost or more than that! 8/10
