It will look great if they were in the cities mentioned.

But I still like New York's gothic style which people sometimes call them "cathedrals of commerce"

Pittsburgh has quite a nice skyline with a stunning water and hill setting :

Pittsburgn shows that you can have a GREAT skyline without supertalls or without a ton of tall buildings. It provides a great skyline all with good placement, variety, location, and scenary. I would call it the best little skyline in the world.

I agree with that. But even if Pittsburgh as at least one supertall, the skyline would be very impressive.

Nice pics and the Midtown skyline is getting some density.

The focus in Toronto is the waterfront areas, where there are a lot of condominiums being built :

I think high-rise condominiums is becoming a trend in major Canadian cities not just Toronto but Vancouver as well. It's also the same with US cities as well like Chicago or Miami.

The Toronto and Vancouver examples are urban rejuvenation projects. False Creek in Vancouver and the disused railyards in Toronto were prime sites that were left unused. These two are by far the largest redevelopment projects in Canada in recent memory. Other cities have more piecemeal projects - a skyscraper here and there.
