Except Toronto looks like it's meeting the same fate as Atlantis. That said, we do like our observation towers in this country: Calgary, Toronto, Niagara Falls.

Agree. 50 years ago Montreal had taller buildings than Chicago. Shocking, but true. After PVM and Tour de la Bourse went up, interest in verticality seemed to evaporate.

And this is Niagara Falls from Toronto

That first picture is kind of scary. It feels like being atop some massive tsunami that's about to engulf the city.

I really think Seattle is inching its way to the top! Amazing amount of development in the Emerald City!

Thx. The Edmonton skyline is one to watch. It's not on many people's radar, but it's set to take off over the next 10 years. I believe there's over $5 billion in projects in the works for the downtown. The Edmontonian at 278m is the most audacious proposal and would rank as the tallest building in Canada outside Toronto.

That said, Calgary's no slouch either. They're both going to rocket up my north American top 20.
