I don't think so, Isaidso. When you look at older pictures of the Woolworth Bulding, there is nothing on that side of it, particularly buildings of the old World Trade Center that include the Woolworth building. There is nothing in that location.

Jersey City - it's got the width but it lacks density and height. Development is pretty hot though. A few 200m+ skyscrapers in the works.

I've always fantasized about a Jersey City with a little bit more height. It would make New York look even more endless!

San Francisco needs some height. It will look a lot better when Transbay is built.

Gawd it looks massive from that angle. That emerging cluster on the lower left is Yonge/Eglinton. I don't think it could ever fully link up with the main downtown, but it's 7.55 km to the lake.

Did you ever hear me mention that the Transamerica pyramid was originally planned to be over 350m, but it got chopped down because NIMBYS didn't want it blocking there views of the bay? Imagine the standard that would have set for the city.
