Singapore (and Tokyo) is the living proof that a skyline can looks good without supertalls.

I think we can include Toronto in that group for the time being.

It's nice knowing that the 40 year wait for a super tall is coming to an end. Who knew when FCP went up in 1975 that we'd still be waiting to get something 2m taller.

2m is really a joke, should get someone to stand above the tower and it become a supertall already

You're damn right! Hopefully we will not be on that group for much longer, though. I don't crave for supertalls, but one is really needed to balance the CN Tower, IMHO.

Yeah, it sounds weird that it's just a matter of few cm, although that could be justified by the fact that the "supertalls status" didn't existed back in the 1975 when FCP was builded (it was the 6th tallest building in the world back then! ).
