A little old as AURA, One Bloor, and about 30 other towers haven't risen yet. The giant spider attacking Toronto is fake.

If you hadn't labeled it I would have guessed somewhere in Mexico. The Mexican skylines I've seen don't have dense cores but towers scattered in a central area. The tall buildings are almost all built in the last 20 years so you won't see any PoMo, Art Deco, or International style skyscrapers. They're mostly glass and speak to the current aesthetic globally. Almost everything else is under 100m.

Put all that on slithers of land in between treeless tall mountains and you get what I consider to be the quintessential Mexican urban landscape.

That's basically a description of either Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Puebla...

Hartford is the best in Connecticut, and Stamford is quickly catching up. I hear the state isn't doing too well financially, however.
