What makes this one of the world's best skyline? Why are you posting this?

God, I forgot all about that publication. I used to buy it when I was in grade school. What's it a list of and which one did you buy, the US edition or the regular one?

I'm not sure. What's the difference? I'm talking about the list of tall buildings in North American cities. Toronto has a pretty impressive list there this year with your most recent boom. Miami's list hasn't changed much this year, but should next year with a lot of new projects starting in 2014.

Ah right, in the US there's naturally just the US edition. In Canada and elsewhere they used to publish another version that was less US focused. It didn't have that big US section at the front and they substituted it with more 'world lists'. You had the option of buying that version or the US edition with tons more US content. I wouldn't know if they still have 2 versions these days.

I take it the top 4 north American cities in that tall buildings list are New York, Chicago, Toronto, and Miami in that order? Or is Panama City in 4th? If they are, you'll surely pass them soon. I'll have to go down to the book store and have a look.

Yes, you are correct, but they don't list Panama City. Not sure why.

Likely due to our blind spot towards areas of this continent that aren't Canada or the US. I've even seen some companies omit Mexico.

I'm looking for the Miami list to explode next year. I bought one this year just to compare it with next year. Nice shot of Toronto density. That reminds me. I'd better make reservations soon.

We're counting on you to keep us updated on Miami. Toronto? Late June, early July and you'll be here for the 'fun'.

Well, I did a count this morning between Miami and Houston, and while Miami does have a longer list of buildings over 500 feet tall, because Houston has taller buildings, it beats Miami by 2,190 feet with buildings over 500 feet tall. We'll have far more than that under construction later this year.
