Actually London has a lot of skyscrapers for it's size with two more over 20 stories in the inncer city under construction as we speak. They are both residential and downtown London's population is growing very fast which has, amongst other things, really turned the downtown around.
London' inner city has a lot of very good restaurants, cafes, and shopping in it's inner city which is helped by London being a white collar, university, old wealth city.

Regina, Saskatoon, Halifax, Hamilton (a bit bigger) even Windsor in my opinion seems to have a bigger and better skyline than London. It just seems too spread out and not good enough for it's size imo.
Windsor does not have a bigger skyline

I used to live there so I know there are some better views. I just can't find them online. I'll have to take my camera with me when I go back.

Or if anyone lives in London - go to Wharncliff and Commissioners for some great shots. Or Wortely road near thames park. From there, you can see that London is really pretty big for it's size.
