if it comes to the worlds best skylines i'm into authentic, honest and truly iconic skyines.
With this in mind, nothing beats NYC, Chicago & Co for me.

We're hoping to see some of that down here during this boom, but it's hard with so many greedy developers looking to make a buck without "wasting" money on ornamentation.

I guess you noticed the major spam attack we just recently had. Man, that took some real work to clean up.

Yes, and it looks like we just got hit by Spam Attack 2.

Regarding cities spending on great architecture, it really boils down to what the market demands. If a developer is catering to a sophisticated, monied target market, they'll spend the money for top notch design.

Over the last 20 years Toronto has been roundly criticized for the quality of its architecture and it was a valid criticism. Torontonians didn't demand great architecture so developers didn't offer it. The older building stock is very good so it wasn't always that way. Fortunately design has gotten better each passing year and the standards are much better than they were even 5 years ago. We're not there yet, but we're at least moving in the right direction.

Miami will get great architecture if people in Miami demand it. Btw, what is someone from Miami called? A Miamite?

Yes, I see. Yellow Fever took care of that one, and it was even more work. I don't think I was up early enough.

I hope so. All I can do is inspire them through pictures.

Yes, it is Miamian. Miamite sounds like a small insect from Miami. I am a Miami mite. I try to keep them off the plants.

Miamian sounds much better. The other one is too close to mite but it also sounds too close to Marmite, that awful spread that Australians like. Or is that vegiemite?

Oh, God! I don't know. Sounds like something I don't want to try though. I bought the 2014 World Almanac and Book of Facts today. Toronto has a pretty inpressive list in there.
