Some of this pictures are great but they are too large. Please keep them at 1600 pixels max so the thread does not become too heavy

Baltimore has an underrated skyline. It really needs one or two 180-200m buildings to give it a good focal point, though. Especially considering how dense it is.

Calgary is drool worthy but that observation tower looks like a red barn on a stick.

Yeah. The entire city has had various height limits passed over the course of the past several decades. The outer neighborhoods were limited mostly to 40'-50' while downtown was limited to the 100'-600' range, depending on where you are...similar restrictions were passed throughout the entire metro area...and people wonder why we ended up with a giant housing shortage.

There's been a lot of up-zoning over the past decade though, mostly in downtown, and largely in a spotty manner. So some sites that used to be limited to say 200' got raised to say, 400', some that used to be limited to 500' got raised to 800' or 1,000', etc (which is to roof level. Crowns and spires can exceed the limit).

It's uglier the closer you get to it. Calgary should consider tearing it down and building a proper landmark that better reflects the city its become and the city it aspires to be.

There may be some sentimental attachment to the Calgary Tower but it really is a turd.

It looks like the KFC bucket on a pole used for advertising!

Yep, all that's missing is a KFC outlet underneath it. There's a business opportunity there somewhere.
