The Calgary skyline is easily the second best skyline in Canada. Its really in a tier above Vancouver and Montreal.

Thanks!

I think Calgary's skyline is denser, similar to Brisbane. For buildings higher than 100 m/328 ft, Calgary has 65 buildings, Brisbane has 43 buildings while Perth only has 13 buildings.

New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Houston, Seattle, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh .... and then San Francisco, then Miami. It barely makes my top 10. Transbay will change things considerably though.
Salesfore Tower just broke through the plateau so SF will have some sort of focal point.

And when the other projects (111 West 57th Street, 220 Central Park South, Central Park Tower, 252 East 57th Street...) will be completed the skyline will be better than ever

Hong Kong looks amazing on those newer pics. I just love skylines against a hilly/mountainous backdrop. Many cities with potential to becoming as good in the future.
