It will need another 15-20 years before it becomes part of the conversation.

This one I took yesterday morning from the 79th Street Causeway. Four buildings over 500 feet tall are planned to the right of the building under construction. One of the 500-footers is already under construction.

Have any of these impressively-tall buildings incorporated strategies for dealing with the rising ocean levels that will inevitably impact coastal Florida?

I thought I addressed that with you already. Either way, going vertical is our best chance of surviving and something being left here called Miami, but there is no definite plan in place. Now this is off-topic.

It's not a taboo subject, but the wrong thread. Feel free to open up a thread in the Miami forum if you would like to get opinions on the matter.

Fantastic new Toronto skyline shot from loulibra on Reddit.

Sorry softee, but you have to downsize it. When we allow everybody to do these oversized pics, they tend to slow down the website for some people.

3-4 buildings in the 250-300m range and Calgary will be one of the big boys.
