I agree 100%. I honestly don't see any other city in the running, although I would say that Toronto is a distant third, and will likely close the gap with Chicago over the next 20 years since construction is booming, style is becoming more innovative and 70-80 storey towers are now being embraced. Also, Chicago has gone through some very difficult economic times and hasn't been operating at full speed for quite some time.

The data would suggest that the gap between Chicago and Toronto could close within the next 4-5 years. If what's currently at the proposal stage in Toronto gets built, Chicago will fall to 3rd. It's a big 'if', but very few of Toronto's proposals over the last 7 years were cancelled or shelved.

100m+ Buildings (Built, U/C, Proposed)
Chicago 340
Toronto 363

The only category where Chicago will be ahead is super talls. Chicago would have 6, Toronto none if one excludes the CN Tower. Toronto is certainly behind Chicago by a significant margin, but the gap is closing far faster than you're indicating.
