Vancouver is right at what she belongs, so I have no complain about it. Edmonton will soon over take Vancouver in a few more years, take my words for it.

Without any true skyscrapers office towers, Vancouver has no chance to move up the standing against the big 2 and soon Edmonton as well.

Yes there is a major component of personal taste. Some people like office buildings much more than residential, and Vancouver has like 10 residential for every office. Also, some people find Vancouver too short, and others find it too repetitive with some types of architecture.

But there are ways that certain tastes can be equally negative toward any of the major skylines.

Vancouver and Montreal are tied for second/third spot for me.

For me Calgary is #4. I like the variety of styles in Montreal more, along with the International Style office towers in the Central Business District. As for Vancouver I like the
sheer density of the skyline. Calgary has a very impressive skyline for a city of its size, but still has a lot of parking lots downtown that need to be filled up before I'd bump it above!
