Won't ever happen in Seattle because of the Space Needle's location and because the zoning around it is highly restricted. It will always retain its prominence in the iconic Kerry Park view and the Alki beach view of the city. It's getting harder and harder to see from within the city because of all the new towers but it will always be protected from those mentioned points.

Good to know. The CN Tower has no such protection. The rail tracks, a park, and Skydome do afford the tower some separation from the rest of the skyline however.

My list fluctuates a lot, but I guess it would more or less look like this:

1. New York City
2. Toronto
3. Chicago
4. Vancouver
5. Los Angeles
6. Calgary
7. Philadelphia
8. San Francisco
9. Seattle
10. Miami
11. Montreal
12. Houston
13. Panama City
14. Dallas
15. Atlanta

I base my rankings on a few things, mainly balance, density and height.
