That's one of the best Ottawa photos I've ever seen. You feel the power and influence of the capital when you walk down Wellington Street. Truly one of the most impressive walks in the country.

Yep, 30 years ago the roles were reversed but Denver stopped building anything downtown and the area sprawled out like crazy. Now the action has returned to the city's core. Not sure if this trend will lead to any new skyscrapers but at least the closure of Stapleton Airport has lifted height limits.

Yes, Denver is still the bigger metro by a large margin with around 2.8 million compared to 1.4 million in Calgary.

Calgary is now Canada's biggest skyline outside of Toronto and shows no signs of slowing down. It past Montreal as our #2 head office city over 10 years ago and most of the skyline is office. It could mushroom in size if Calgarians start opting to live downtown in large numbers. It looks like we're starting to see exactly that with condo towers starting to pop up all over the place.

Most of it, including Parliament, is done in 'Gothic Revival'. The building on the far right is the Chateau Laurier Hotel and one of the country's grand railway hotels. It's done in 'Canadian Chateau' style. Toronto's Royal York Hotel, which you may have seen when you visited, is also done in that style.

Toronto - Don Valley Parkway

What you see is the northern half of the downtown core. The tallest building on the right is the Four Seasons Hotel in Yorkville. The CBD and CN Tower would be out of frame and to the left.

Good eye. I noticed that stick protruding from the tree canopy on the left border of the photo and that's precisely what that is. One internet beer for you.

You can barely see the Calgary Tower. Something twice as tall and twice as nice would be more fitting.
