I know what you mean. I think my problem with it is that it looks as if the whole skyline was built the same year by the same architecture firm since all the most visible buildings are large late 80s early 90s pomo office towers.

It's definitely impressive in size and density though.

The quality of buildings in Panama City isn't all that good, but it's hard to deny that it's got a huge skyline. I might have to put it in my top 10 soon.

It surpassed Denver's a while ago. Denver is going gangbusters right now but it's all midrise density.
