Yeah I probably see more Bangkok and Jakarta than NYC and Chicago. But if they want to post them it's ok I guess. Personally I don't enjoy these cities but I'm sure a lot of people do.

The Chicago River is an amazing asset for that city. The buildings juxtaposed with the water looks terrific.

This is my issue with the Vancouver skyline. It doesn't match that spectacular setting. It needs something more like a Singapore skyline.

Chicago may be able to stay close to Shanghai for a while but long term it's not all that realistic. This is China's premier city. It has so many engines of growth that just aren't available to Chicago. Chicago will have it's hands full staying ahead of Toronto for similar reasons. Melbourne will be another alpha city to pull up even with Chicago. That likely won't happen for another 30 years though.

It's not that Chicago isn't doing well, but being the #1 city of a major economy has tremendous benefits in terms of immigrants, global investment flows, etc. Chicago's the primary city of a big regional economy, but the perks that go along with that only go so far.

It's my favourite feature in Miami and agree that it's going to look even better in a few years.

I suppose but Vancouver could do with an office tower over 250m.
