I hate how the height drops off so dramatically outside of the CBD. However, in terms of the skyline of the CBD itself, it is definitely top notch. 8/10.

Hi! I work for Continental and my boss is retiring at the end of the year. She LOVED your picture of our building/logo. Our group would like to present it to her in a poster-size. Can you email it to me in a format that can be amplified? I tried this picture but when I made it bigger it was very blurry. Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated!
Thank you.

Houston has a pretty nice skyline. Although my favorite building has always been the one crazy tall one all by itself out past Post Oak area. I haven't been to Houston recently but am told there has been some added out that way the past few years. Anyway Houston has some very Texas sized skyline(s)! =)

Uhh...you mean in the immediate area outside of the CBD or just a few miles away?

Why I ask this is because Houston has numerous 900, 600, 500, 400, 300, & 200 ft. tall skyscrapers all over the city forming many separate skylines outside of downtown proper because of Houston's lack of formal zoning laws which basically permits towers to rise from the most unusual of places, sometimes sprouting up behind single family ranch style homes as in the case with Uptown Houston which BTW forms the 3rd tallest skyline in the state after Downtown Dallas while Downtown Houston is of course the 1st tallest in Texas.

If all of Houston's skylines were lined up together perfectly (which certain Houston skyline angles give you this illusion) they would form the 3rd largest skyline in all of North America. Downtown alone is already the 3rd tallest after Chicago, but not the largest, that would be Miami.

10/10. Houston is the place I call home. The photo taken on I-45 south posted by desertpunk is my favorite view of the city because it makes downtown look bigger.

Not really a fan of Houston's skyline. The buildings seem to be quite bland. 6/10....
