How many times do you have to say you love it? With one is enough to understand.

In that shoot Toronto has some kind of Gotham City feeling. Nice find!

In all fairness, the bits to the west of (to the right of) the CN Tower aren't part of the CBD but the Entertainment District. The CBD is steadily expanding its footprint however. It now extends south of the railway tracks and grows in every other direction a little further all the time.

The Shard has vaulted London into my #34 spot. London's a skyline on its way up, but has a lot of work ahead of it to crack the top 20.

Isaidso, when I made the comment though, I hadn't even scrolled to the right yet.

Oh! I guess it is looking rather meaty these days. I find photos taken from about 40-50 floors up are the most realistic. Aerials make everything look smaller than they are, while with photos from the ground are distorted by perspective. The height of a building gets 'shrunk' as the base looks large and everything else gets continuously smaller.

I think it's the new condo towers that are actually in the financial district along with the office towers.
