Don't worry, Edmonton will get 250m and 200m towers soon, then people will start to notice it

I think I'd have to say:
1) Toronto
2) Montreal
tied with:
2) Vancouver
and
4) Calgary.


But it is a true toss up between Montreal and Vancouver. I like the variety in the Montreal skyline, but the Vancouver density is awesome. All that is missing is height!

How much height is it that you're looking for? Currently the tallest buildings seem to be about 200m. And please don't just say the taller the better.

hehe! It is true that the few tallest buildings are 200 m, but the vast majority are quite a bit shorter. The recent few tall ones have made a huge difference in giving some shape to the skyline.
Therefore the skyline has density, but not much bulk.

what Vancouver missing isn't just height, its also missing the main ingredient of the skyline that is the tall office towers.

True; do you know I had never thought of that until you just pointed it out? Office towers are a different design and generally higher budget; a downtown cluster of them look good as the skyline's anchor.

Well, it is a clear four horse race so far. Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary have good skylines which seem to be interesting in different ways.

^ Most of that is Toronto. Only a few floors of one building is Mississagua.

Or maybe that small little commie block on the bottom left could be as well.

This is what the skyline will look like from that vantage point in 5 years.
