You'd better hurry, and bring a pretty big wallet. The South Loop is one of the fastest growing areas around. The area's developing a pretty nice skyline just by itelf now. Those picture above are either a few years old, or cut off at the wrong point. If you think Chicago's skyline is nice now, just give it five years. You ain't seen nothing yet. The building boom there now is just unreal.

Haha, I lived in the small brick apartment building in your second photo this past summer. You can add a few more even since last year. Don't have any pictures of my own, but here's one from another thread of what it could look like in the near future. The one on the left is just about completed.

WOW didnt know that Toronto is building that much currently......its skyline will be significantly beeing improoved over the next three years.......

but Toronto needs another few really tall towers to bring down the CN tower a bit....it sticks too much out of the skyline, IMO even after 2011

Actually, the green scaffolding came down only very recently. In fact, a lot of people, including yourself I believed, criticized how long they took to finish that top.

My sunset photos from yesterday :
