nice resort city but there isn't much of a skyline that can challenge the title of the best skyline in North America.

Too bad the airport is so close by. Not much chance of anything taller in that district.

There's still potential for ~800' at the place where the supertall was originally proposed a few years ago. Also, the plateau is dominated by 5 towers between 590'-614', and there are a few (slightly) taller proposals. One of them (Filenes Tower, 625') is supposed to start really soon, although I have certainly heard that before...

Houston. I've never been a fan of the skyline, but when I saw aerials of the city during the NBA All-Stars, my opinion changed.

I actually like Houston skyline and I think it got the height and density.

Mexico City will need another 5-10 years before it starts looking good in skyline shots.
