although Skytree and CN tower contribute to the skyline, but by definition they are towers, not buildings.

For a São Paulo (not Paolo, Brazil does not speak Spanish, Brazil speaks Portuguese) native, every building is a landmark. My wife (from São Paulo) regularly complains about every building here in Germany looking the same while in her home town she can tell where she's at by knowing all the different landmark highrises there.

Just read the first post in this thread before you try to explain the difference between an tower and a building...

Most people like the skylines which have the exceptional height that not many cities have achieved. However, this achievement is becoming more common as the years roll by. Barring cities with supertalls, which city do you think has the best skyline?

I look at three landmark buildings in Sampa,

The Martinelli Building, Edifico Copan and Edifico Italia.

Plus Torre Norte.

But again, is there a height limit why buildings don't go past 600 m?

Paolo is in Italian, not Spanish. Spanish is Pablo. I think you should refrain from criticizing other people's knowledge of languages.

It's a direct quote from an article written by a Spanish speaker visiting Brazil being chided for spelling the city Spanish-speaking South Americans usually do. I see no reason to refrain from quoting common criticisms Brazilians have for their Spanish-speaking neighbours.

Boston has a pretty good one. 19 buildings over 150m, with another U/C (far right of this pic, will be the same height as the nearby Prudential!) and another in prep phase. Pic is from flickr.

^ I don't understand, then, what use is the quote for you, if it is wrong?... You can't correct others with a *wrong* correction.

Also, if you don't use quotation marks, it will appear as if it is your own words... Although I expect you know that...

The use is that it seems to be a fairly common Brazilian expression towards a fairly common mistake among it's neighbouring countries' populations. I don't know why you think any Argentinian or Chilean would write "Sao Pablo", but "Sao Paolo" appears to be getting regular use around there. It's not that average Spanish speakers switch the name for a local name, it's that they can't spell Portuguese correctly/use a spelling that feels more "natural" to them.

That said: Have a nice day - not "have a nice day", common expressions don't use quotation marks.

I still don't understand but if you don't really feal like following it up for my sake then fair enough, maybe it's my fault. I'm not an English speaking native either and sometimes stuff just flies over my head, or I try to no avail to convey what I really mean, to other coforumers. As for Argentines and Chileans, I just wish you don't put anything in my mouth, I just pointed out for you that "Paolo" is in Italian.
