Lol wrong country!

But yes, that part of Queens has grown its skyline freakishly fast this past year in particular. I'm still not used to it, but it's nice to have another skyscraper cluster.

San Diego - I feel like we don't talk about it enough. Lots of development, however nothing significantly tall.

Thats because the 2 airports right besides dowtown, there is a height restriction.
Same with boston???
Same with Vancouver, becasue of the "blocking" of the mountain views

Boston has restrictions, but also already has 16 buildings taller than San Diego's height limit. There are a few specific places that could go upwards of 1000' if people weren't so afraid of a little shade.

I have a hard time getting interested in San Diego when a city like Hartford has 3 buildings taller than SD's 500' max limit. That's way too low of a ceiling for a major city.

Yes, Vancouver has a strict height restriction of 200m/656ft to maintain "view corridors" that protect views of the North Shore Mountains.

One of the biggest skyline changes we'll see due the closing of an airport is happening in Edmonton. The tallest building had been 150m. Now that Edmonton City Centre airport is closed there's a 191m and 250m building under construction. There's a 280m building that received approval a few days ago. That's a huge increase in height and speaks to the extent to which that airport stunted tower height.
