Austin



While I wouldn't expect Austin's skyline to make everyone's short list, this city is EXPLODING. A supertall may go up before decade's end as there are plans for a 72-74 story tower downtown. This is a shot across the bow. Austin will be joining the ranks.

What are the upcoming skylines to watch out for the next decade?

I think Atlanta, Charlotte, Minneapolis, Austin are stunning. Philly has another proposed supertall as well I believe?

1. New York (no competition)
2. Chicago
3. Toronto
4. Philly (because I lived there)
5. LA
6. Houston

Houston would have a massive skyline if the same proportion of office and residential space was located downtown as the other large American metros. A shame because it has the second largest number of Fortune 500 companies located there but most are located in soulless low rise campuses

Right now the hot cities are NYC, Miami, Austin, Boston and Chicago is back at it. Philly's 1500 ft tower was scrapped but another the size and height of the Comcast (974ft) is in the early planning stages.

Later this decade: expect new tallests for San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Phoenix, Nashville, Honolulu and possibly a 2000 footer in Chicago (high beta).

One more Boston. I have a feeling it will start feeling the love again once the Copley Place condo tower is built. Boston may finally be on the verge of some much needed vertical growth!

The best is still New York, immediately followed by Toronto, hence cities like Atlanta, Seattle, Boston, Miami and Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver and Edmonton are in the same conditions.

For 2011

1. NYC
2. Chicago
3. Toronto
4. Los Angeles
5. Philadelphia

For 2012, it might be

1. NYC - just WAAAY above the rest
2. Toronto - seeing all the projects going on
3. Chicago - there are proposed supertalls, but... unclear where Chicago stands. I still think it has the most balanced skyline in the world
