Probably not. Top 15, maybe. I can easily think of 10 US skylines that are 10 years ahead of JC.

This, but I can think of at least 15 skylines that are much better than JC. The JC skyline really isnt anything special right now. In 10 years it still wont really be noteworthy.

At the moment, of course. However cities which don't exist in the top 8-9 range don't have the highrise development which Downtown Jersey City and Journal Square will experience in the next 10 years. Several projects that have already started have second or third towers which have yet to be built. Keep in mind i'm not including Canada, so no Toronto, Montreal or Calgary.







Hudson Exchange West will add 11 new towers, one is U/C.

Jersey City could be one of those skylines that fall under people's radar. It will get spill over from Manhattan and could get much bigger quickly. Another skyline to watch over the next 10 years is Edmonton. Their small city airport recently closed and the restrictive height limits were lifted.

Downtown Edmonton is undergoing a building boom. Stantec at 252m is currently under construction and will be the tallest building in Canada outside of Toronto when complete. Another even taller tower just got proposed last week: 280m and 80 floors. They might end up with the 2 tallest and it's a big jump considering their current tallest is 149m. Edmonton's coming off a very small base but it looks intent on catching up to its more famous provincial rival Calgary.

Not sure it can make the top 10 in the next 10 years but it will emerge as a significant skyline for the first time. This is what it looked like last winter:

Here's a more recent photo. You can see their new NHL arena rising in the upper left. The 252m Stantec is rising next to it. The skyline's not much to look at right now but it won't remain so. It will also benefit from location. The downtown is located on a hill over looking the river valley.
