Dallas has a pretty impressive skyline, really dense and a lot of height. Looking down the highways going into downtown it looks just like a wall of skyscrapers. If Dallas had more of a signature tower, something really tall, it would be even cooler. Nice mix of boxes and other shapes, with a lot of old and new. Dallas really is a skyscraper city, and not just in downtown. 9/10

I have never lived in Dallas but have been there many times for business. According to SS.com no building over 500 feet has gone up there since 1988, thats 15 years ago. In person the skyline does not look like a mix of old and new, it looks like most of it was built at one time. I think Dallas looks much better and bigger in pictures than in reality. I remember the fisrt time I flew in, I thought the building with the neion outline looked really cool from the plane. Now when I see it I wonder when something new will happen nearby. I give the skyline a 7/10 due to height and quantity, but with reservations. For such a fast growing metro with a belief it is going to be a preeminent US city in the coming decades, downtown is practically at a standstill.

7.5

The Dallas skyline is really a mixture of 80's po-mo and horrible 60's/70's box architecture.

The 921 ft Bank of America is a rather sharp building... especially framed by the green argon at night... but the 2nd tallest Renaissance is one of the ugliest 800 footers in the US...

the futuristic glass fantasy of Fountain Place is awesome though


Overall, a rather nice skyline, but lacking the great old quality I desire... though the Mercantile is rather nice

I guess Dallas doesn't deserve to be listed as a poll. I am really sick of Dallas being overlooked. It is one of the largest and most important cities in the US and I really wish people would start giving it some credit.

not all that impressed, where is the green space to balance the picture, I mean adjacent parks, or is it all just buildings, a little contrast would help it immensely, also though it would have many more huge buildings given it's size and importance in the US
gave it a 7 or a six, can't remember now

Very impressive, especially Fountain Place and Momentum Place. Impressive modern architecture IMO.

from the distance, the skyline looks pretty good.

but i`m a little bid shocked about the emptyness in the downtown.

really good looking skylines have also a vital city life and the basics for city life: city houses and not parking grounds.

so give 7 points for the skyline viewed from distance, 0 points for the rest of the city, especially for the parking grounds <;-)
