I still dont get how come Vancouver is over calgary in skyline, calgary has tall, unique , office skyscrapers, while vancouver has not a single skyscraper, and lots of generic residential buildings, it is like a north american version of a brazilian city

IMHO, Calgary skyline is #1 in Canada in terms of quality.

The CBD and older part of downtown Vancouver looks good with fabulously vibrant urban streets. The sea of glass condo towers is the opposite in so many ways. It's soul sucking, sterile, with streets that couldn't get any more boring if they tried.

I admit it's hard to block that part of downtown out. Toronto made a similar blunder when it allowed City Place. Thankfully it's a far smaller proportion of the downtown so isn't so jarring. I avoid City Place at all costs. YUCK!

That said, Vancouver does have a skyline that photographs well. It's 4th imo though. Toronto, Montreal, and Calgary are all better.
