There is even more under construction now that didn't make the cutoff before the book went to press.
Q, that is the money shot...no doubt about it.

Can't wait for the second Comcast tower to rise as Philly's new tallest, surpassing their rxisting tower and current tallest.

Sweet! But we don't post individual projects on the skyline threads!

You must be talking about the Schaefer Tower. That what you see is the top floors of the building. The bottom 1/3 is of average size.

I suspected as much, but thank you for clearing that up.

Baltimore's skyline is a little underwhelming for a city of its size, IMO, but I do hope it gets better.. One of my favorite vantage points is from the top of the world trade center (tallest building in the photo) where the view is just priceless... I always take my guests there!

Interestingly, by roof height I can pick out 4 buildings in this photo taller than WTC, and by official height I can see a 5th that's taller. (the one with the cage on top)

Gee I wasn't too observant I'm not exactly sure how many stories the world trade center has but I think the observation area they call the "top of the world" if I remember it right, is either on the 27th or 28th floor.

Yes, So Close !!, 32 Floors to be exact according to the 2011 World Almanac , Book of Facts , #1 New York Times Bestseller Book IMO back then listed at 405 Feet High
There also was At Least 5 Towers taller back then, and I'm sure more will be on the Way to Pass up Legg Mason tower of 529 Feet in the Near Future of Our Tower Boom !!

Let's Go Back to the Topic here of Our Great North American Skyline Photos Of Our 2nd Greatest Construction Boom of Our SSC 21st Century !!

I like how you can see the Burnaby skyline in the first 2 photos. It's a very faint silhouette, but it's there. Apparently there's more high rise construction out there than in Vancouver at the moment.
