A huge hospital complex with a good number of mid-rises

That's actually an old picture, btw. Plus, it doesn't even show the Energy Corridor.

Great city, but the skyscrapers all have a cookie cutter look.

Houston: ten thousand strip malls in search of a city. (I jest, I jest. The city has made some wonderful strides in densifying and urbanizing.)

The scope and size of the skyline is worthy of an 8 or 8.5, but so much of the skyline is a slice out of the 80s, which is not my favorite period of architecture. So I'll settle for a 7.5.
