I'm pretty comfortable calling this my #3 skyline in the US.

Agree. You and I seem to be in a minority though.

After almost half a century of very little the Montreal development industry sprung to life around 2010. Montreal has very strict height limits (200m) so rather than building a few tall towers the city is building a larger number of shorter towers. There has been a noticeable change after only 6 years. The result has been an expansive downtown instead of a tall one. Montreal seems to be heading in that direction more than any other major city in north America. They might not ever make a top 10 skyline list but they'll end up with a big dense downtown.

Of Montreal's 61 100m+ buildings 18 have gone up since 2010.

I think that the Kansas City skyline is one of the most underrated skylines in America. It has some spectacular pre-war towers, some reasonably nice post-modernist towers, and the skyline forms a very nicely defined silhouette from multiple angles. In my opinion, its skyline is nicer than that of St. Louis, although I also believe that the St. Louis skyline is underrated. Id love to see more photos of Kansas City and St. Louis posted, especially from uncommon angles. If that would be possible.
