Here is a few more of PTY. You can see there are several towers under cosntruction. And these pictures do not even pan to Punta Paitilla and Punta Pacifica, which are the districts with the highest density of highrises (both completed and under construction).

Thanks. Panama City's skyline is a cross between a south American skyline and a Canadian/American skyline. Considering where it's located, that would make sense. Here's a Toronto shot. A telephoto was used, but an interesting photo nonetheless:

So when you say that Panama City is now 4th in North America, does that mean that Toronto has surpassed it? Is that based on number of buildings completed or something like that?

According to one quantitative analysis, Toronto was behind Panama City for a little while. They counted every metre of building over 90m as 1 point. A 260m building would get 170 points while a 110m building would get 20 points, and so on. Then they added all the points up.

Of course, there's much more to a skyline than this. There's quality, layering, layout, density, architecture, iconic structures, etc. That said, I do view that study as good starting point from which to evaluate skylines. Here's a link to their 2013 table:

Yes, let's please not post "future renderings" in this section. They are misleading and as QuantumX noted, off topic. Thanks!

great finds by Monkey!

Wow! Great find Juan Pablo. Great shot of the skyline and the port and part of Brickell City Centre under construction.

Agreed, it is a fantastic shot! But I didn't find it! All credit goes to desertpunk. That view is very similar to my favorite view of the Miami skyline, when you are headed westbound on the McArthur Causeway and you hit the highpoint of the bridge on the Miami Beach end of the causeway. You can really see the complete spread of the skyline from this vantage point.... all the way from south Brickell to the Julia Tuttle Causeway
