Usually not a fan of the Dallas skyline, but it looks great there.

Didn't realize it was that high. I was going by this link, which I cut off for all buildings completed this year, and sorted by roof height. So if you factor in spires I guess you could be right. http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?searchID=57909653

I think Hong Kong is higher for the simple reason that many of these developments are 5-7 towers at a time that are mass produced, and should count separately for each tower instead of just one.

In terms of 4th skyline, I think it has to go to Panama City (the forgotten skyline) for sheer volume.

If we were to leave it out and say Central America isn't *really* North America... I would say it's a dogfight among Atlanta (seriously), Houston, LA, Seattle, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Miami. Boston could get into the conversation if some of its larger (approved!) projects finally move forward. None of these cities have separated themselves from the pack.
Hong Kong has more than 290 skyscrapers over 500 ft.

Atlanta actually has 4 skylines, unfortunately. If they were all condensed into one compact skyline, It could make top 5 in NA easily.
