Nice Panama City shots! It reminds me of a better, bigger version of Miami.

Toronto's has the 3rd largest skyline, but people don't base these things solely on scale, height, or other quantitative qualities. I still find it questionable to leave Toronto out of a north American top 6. Oh well, it's all personal preference.

I've added a list I posted in another thread that lists cities around the world based solely on the quantitative measure of buildings over 100 metres. This is the top 50 ranked by 'Combined Heights' which is the height in metres of all buildings over 100 m added together.

As you can see the biggest/tallest in north America in order are: New York, Chicago, Toronto, Panama City, Miami, Mexico City, Houston, Honolulu, San Francisco, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, then Dallas. Stripping out buildings under 100 metres really changes things.

City: # of buildings 100 metres or more---Combined Heights in metres

01. Hong Kong: 2,354---333,836
02. New York: 794---109,720
03. Tokyo: 556---73,008
04. Dubai: 403---66,248
05. Shanghai: 430---59,958

06. Bangkok: 355---48,737

07. Chicago: 341---48,441
08. Ghuangzhou: 295---42,865
09. Seoul: 282---39,308
10. Kuala Lumpur: 244---34,035

11. Singapore: 238---33,735
12. Shenzhen: 235---33,435
13. Chongqing: 226---31,475

14. Toronto: 216---27,867
15. Panama City: 185---27,478


16. Manila: 186---26,307

That said, Vancouver I don't particularly find to have amazing architecture either, but Vancouver's backdrop and harbour prop up the skyline as a whole, and it is quite a dense city.
