Interesting. Is there currently a height limit on Burnaby?

If memory serves me correctly there are no height restrictions in Burnaby. That's what makes it so interesting. Developers are flocking here to escape the overly restrictive regulations in Vancouver.

Do you genuinely think that would qualify as one of the "best N.A. skyline"?

First of all, you didn't answer my question: do you genuinely think that Cancun would qualify as one of the "best N.A. skyline"?. Would you put Cancun in the same list with NYC and Chicago?

Second, if someone else is posting a photo that doesn't belong here, it doesn't mean that you should do the same. Stating that "They put picture of Halifax blah blah" make you look childish. They who? I don't recall Halifax's pics in this threads, btw.

Do you really want to go down that road? Read again my post. I didn't say NY and Chicago are the only skylines worth to be posted here. I asked

Unlike Toronto, which has a real SKYLINE, the tallest building in Cancun is 61 meters tall. In case you didn't noticed, we are in the SKYSCRAPERS section and this thread is about SKYSCRAPERS.

Oh and I won't "mind my own business" since this is a free thread, like you said, and your backlash about my own city not allowed to be here is beyond childish, you're making a fool of yourself.

If you fell an urge to post more Cancun photo, you can always open a "Best resorts in the world" topic.

You mean this?



It's not a building, it's an observation tower.

This is the core of downtown Miami with Coral Gables in the far ground and the Port of Miami in the foreground.
