I think many Asian skylines are undercounted. When I look at the cities with the most highrises and up, I'm always skeptical that certain American or European ones have higher counts than some Asian ones. In pictures, they look massive! According to CTBUH height calculator, a 30 floor residential is about 102 meters. Considering how many of these 30+/- residentials there are in these Asian cities, I wonder what the real count is. Their massive size in pictures probably has to do with how the buildings are laid out (relatively evenly spaced, uniform), which makes the skyline appear larger. But still...

Agree! Would love to see some pictures of the city from this vantage point in a few weeks! By the way, is there a freeway nested within the valley?

A lot of our local photographers head out around Halloween to capture the fall colours so I'll keep an eye out for a photo to post. The Don Valley is home to both the Don River which flows from Lake Ontario, a main rail line, and the Don Valley Parkway, our main north - south freeway on downtown's east side. Locals call it the DVP for short and it's one of the most picturesque drives into the city.

The river used to be much wider, but was substantially narrowed a century ago due to fears of disease, etc. In the last 10 years attempts have been made to return the Don River to a pristine state and re-establish the delta which used to act as a flood protector. You can see a tiny bit of the Don River below the Bloor Viaduct (the bridge).
