Surprisingly, LA has 14 skyscrapers taller than 650 ft.

With 18 million people, LA has a huge potential.

People discount LA because it has a small skyline for a metro of 18 million. They also have a perception that it's all sprawl and no density. If one just looks at the skyline objectively, it's easily one of the best on the continent.

At some point, that main cluster is going to start pulling in people looking for a big downtown lifestyle. When Angelenos start moving there in large numbers, the skyline will mushroom in size.

I could see this skyline passing Chicago's one day. This is a city twice the size and it's growing a lot faster.

The problem is that there is not a show of intention by angelinos to centralize its city, LA is the largest sprawl in the world ., still not signs of na urgently needed verticality/density here

One would think that eventually enough 'stuff' will be concentrated there and house prices will go up high enough that high rise living in the core will become an attractive option. Sounds like that tipping point hasn't been reached in LA yet.

Yes my biggest beef with Brooklyn is the new skyscrapers are generally cheap looking (PTAC units, random cladding, etc.). A bit of a shame since the old skyline was handsome and understated, but some of the newer developments like 250 Ashland are good, and of course 340 Flatbush will be the game changer Hopefully they'll draw enough attention away from the less quality buildings.

Downtown living in LA has been slowly picking up steam but I think the LA Metro's regional connector opening in 2020 will be a huge boost. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regional_Connector
