Mexico City is shaping up nicely. How tall will that one under construction be?

And Al Capone once stayed there. In that Portland photo, is it Oregon on the left and Washington across the bridge?

Los Angeles is sprawling, yes, but it's also very dense. It has a density of 8,600 people per square mile. That's quite dense.

And of Los Angeles' 469 square miles, 105 are in the very sparsely populated Westridge/Topanga Mountains area which has 200,000 people. In effect, LA has 3.8 million people in 360 square miles. That's 10,500 people per square mile, which ranks way above average in the U.S.

As a city LA is amazing: weather, beach, Mountains...entertainment
Its downtown is dense and tall almost strcitly office buildings, I think because of its population the city can handle a residential, vertical , cluster similar to other big cities, like To, Vancouver, chicago, miami....specially in the area between downtown, and santa monica, in fact there is a cluster of buildings in / around this area.(century city) which could easily house tall and luxurious complex towers.
