Awesome Miami photo Quantum. You offers a good look at how the metro is laid out.

Toronto - a rapidly growing slither of downtown between the CBD and the lake. 7 towers are proposed on a lot stretching from the highway to where the Toronto Star building sits. The tallest would be roughly 3 times the height of the Toronto Star building.

I really do think there are some amazing and beautiful skylines in North America - some of the worlds best!

However... I really do think that it is hard to beat New York.

By 1930, New York had already opened up a massive lead over other north American skylines. Cities here have been playing catch up ever since. Despite great strides made by various cities, New York will stay out in front for the foreseeable future.

Maybe by 2050 a rival will emerge.

Between 2001 and 2011 it seemed that Chicago and Toronto were closing in on New York. New York just lost its Twin Towers and only a few tall buildings were built in that decade. But now the city is in the middle of a massive boom. The skyline is getting very tall (6 400m+ towers to the roof). One could say that New York is only competing with the big boys (Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Dubai etc.), because let's face it, in North America there's no real competitor for the foreseeable future.

Chicago vs Toronto - now that will be interesting to watch.

Don't want to start a city v city, but what's the 200 meter building count in Chicago and Toronto? Both have similar lake settings, but Chicago's got the supertalls and have been building skyscrapers for a longer period of time, but Toronto has some serious momentum.

I don't think anyone will consider this city vs city. It's actually pretty interesting comparing those two cities.

Chicago

200m+ completed: 27
200m+ U/C: 2

Toronto

200m+ completed: 15
200m+ U/C: 6

Toronto has a dozen 200m+ towers in prep ...
