^Houston has three buildings over 900ft., the tallest being 1,002 ft.
Not too many cities worldwide can claim that.

Houston's got a nice skyline with some really modern buildings. But the city's tallest isn't that impressive though. Honestly it's one of the worst scrapers ever designed by I.M. Pei!

9/10 for H-Town

7/10 the skyline looks quite dense and tall, but i dont like how scrapers just suddenly rise up from the ground without the gradual increase of height to blend in. Makes the skyline looks like a "wall" from certain angle.

9/10- i like it's height and the way the skyscrapers are set up. it reminds me alot of bogota except that houston's skyline is smaller and less dense.

Houston is underrated...10/10 for me. Best in the South and third behind NYC and Chicago in US.

I gave the skyline an 8, it looks like a very well planned city with some very beautiful scrapers, however it is a tad bit boxy.

9/10 Tall, modern and powerful-looking. Perfect example of 'skyline' definition.

Downtown is not bad at all when you consider that it is all corporate with maybe one small residential highrise. (Houston House)

To be honest, I was expecting something better than this. But still, quite impressive. 7/10.
