Just like Mexico city other cities in Mexico are quite the same. The only one i would disregard from that category however, it's Zapopan, Jalisco.

I'm putting these pictures because although for most they don't make the best skylines, others might see something else. They're good for the sake of discussions though, healthy ones!

Now, just like showed before, Monterrey in the state of Nuevo Leon should be the #1 Mexican skyline to keep an eye on. This city is probably by far the most active construction city in Mexico. As of now, there's 30+ major building projects in the city.

in that skyline there's currently 3 buildings under construction, one the one that can be seen clearly, and two others behind. There's also another one planned.

Thanks to NYGuy on SSP for finding this. For sheer wow factor, aesthetics aside, Midtown's tough to beat.

The density of Midtown is just crazy This view would be even more amazing once the 423 Park Avenue makes impact and other supertalls follow suit

Vancouver has a nice mix of pre-modern, modern and post-modern buildings. Without a doubt Vancouver is an attractive city with a much more refreshing look than the likes of NYC and Chicago.

True. If you don't like variety in architecture like you find in those cities and among others, Vancouvers skyline is quite a refreshing change
