Looks nice. I like it better in the day. At night it looks like a bunch of boxes lit up w/ an observation tower.
At day you can see the detail and really see how nice it looks.

I give it a 6.

Heres what I said in the other thread:


"Calgary's skyline is definantly one of the greats in the Western Hemisphere!! For a city of 1,000,000 its skyline looks like it houses a city of a much larger size!!! 9.5/10!"

impressive size and density for a city of that population, but the buildings are very bland and boring.

6/10

One of my faves.

This skyline is always changing and growing and I'm jealous as hell of this place! The buildings are pretty boring individually though. Would spires help this skyline?

I gotta give it atleast a 9/10

Great downtown density. Huge for the population. Good city planning . A lot of boring buildings though. 8.5

Calgary is a city I've loved forever. I've been there
3 times and the skyline impresses me and sweeps
me off my feet each time I see it. For a city of
1 million, it's the best skyline on Earth. For that
reason, I give it a 10/10.

Who are the ones that gave it a 10? it's not a 10. It's a nice skyline but in no means is it a 10.

Simply a 10... anything less than 9 and you don't know what you're talking about! heheh!

What a perfect skyline and city.
It is by far my favorite skyline out of any on earth.

I gave it a 9.5/10. All it needs is a slightly off-center 900ft tower with a spire.
