Since some folks have been turned away by the amount of pics in this thread, I want to kindle a discussion. It's nothing which hasn't been discussed before, but it's something to get started.

What City has your favorite towers outside of NYC, Chicago and Toronto, and what towers are they?

Philly, Denver, Calgary and Cleveland come to mind. Wells Fargo Center is unique. The Bow is a masterpiece. Same goes for Stern's Comcast tower. Key Tower and the Terminal Tower remind me of an old skyline with a handful of taller spires rather than the modern day CBD with dense clusters.

Other than NYC, Chicago, and Toronto, which cities do you think will have the best skylines by 2025?

Miami, definitely. The FAA seems to be letting up its ridiculous stranglehold on taller developments there and several supertalls are in the works. San Francisco for the Transbay Center and Seattle with its myriad of towers short and tall are also in contest.

plus an awesome Vancouver photo I found browsing Flickr:

I like the mix of old and new in Montreal's skyline:

I think Calgary, Minneapolis, and Cleveland are gems. Calgary's skyline looks new but still very North American and not generically futuristic. Same for Minneapolis. Cleveland's skyline is small but more impressive than some bigger skylines, especially at night. I also really like Detroit. It might even look more Gotham per capita than New York, though that's partially because they haven't experience any new construction for a while...

No doubt Miami's experiencing the biggest boom outside the top 3. I'm also waiting to see how Denver, LA, Mexico City, and Seattle will turn out.

I'm sure that on 10 years Mexico City and Monterrey will be on the top 5 of the region, the boom is so extreme at both cities and it shows no signs of stopping soon!! And I agree that LA will turn out very interesting, it's a case I wanna watch closely.

By the way, I love to see how they build in the USA, all towers look so freaking solid!!! Always with that massive central core and with all structures looking super solid too.
