Almost all of the high rise activity in Dallas is taking place in Uptown. If the proposed 80 story twins go up they will be the first major downtown towers since the mid 1980s.

I have many relatives live in Dallas, when they came up to visit us and I showed them around downtown Vancouver, they always seem to be very impressed with Vancouver skyline and complained how small the Dallas skyline is.

That Toronto photo shows how much potential still exists for intensification in the core. In reality, the city only started going vertical beyond the CBD about 5-6 years ago. Even at the current pace of construction it will take decades before it's built out. Here's an atypical angle of Toronto. I didn't recognize it at first but it's looking west to Yorkville.

Not everything is bigger in Texas.

Thank you isaidso. IMO Detroit is very undervalued in terms of skyline.

Agree. I prefer it to a great number of larger skylines. Those pre-war buildings are worth 10 built after that period. I don't think we'll ever match that era for beauty and grandeur.

NY Harbor is stunning and underappreciated. (thanks to Hudson11 for posting this on the world's greatest skyline thread!)

Whoa, what is that fort? I've lived here over 10 years and never heard of it. Staten Island is an enigma...

Fort Wadsworth! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Wadsworth

Staten Island is weird but I've mostly liked it the few times I've been. Seems like 70% of the Island is suburban sprawl, but the rest of it is beautiful hilly parks, beaches, some charming older/more urban areas (mostly north shore) and surprisingly great ethnic food.
