Monterrey IPA: [ˌmontɛˈrei] (Spanish: Monterrey (help·info)) is the capital city of the northeastern Mexican state of Nuevo León and a municipality of the same name.

Cool city, bad skyline. The city's GDP is almost the size of Peru's... but it hardly has a skyline to show for it. 6.0/10

It was an stupid law that didnt permit to build high towers from late 60´s to late 80´s.

It has a spread skyline, but it has pretty attractive settings too, i don't think that its skyline is ugly, instead i think is different, it has a special quality in open areas, very clean and well ordered city.

8/10

It's a bit tough to say that Monterrey does not have a skyline just because it does not look like New York or Hong Kong.

It does have a skyline but you have to put it in the contest that it is. It's part of latin america and besides the capital of the countries I can bet that it has one of the top 5 skylines of all latin american cities.

This city is growing rapidly. Give it 10 years and It will look as neat as the top 30 cities of the world.

So placing it in its current context I'll give it a 9.5
