Much better pictures, although the skyline is still a work in progress. 4/10

Yeah I know. Maximum allowed height for buildings is 85 meters.
There are 10 towers planned to be built in the next few years and construction has begun on three of them.

The city looks quite good (better than I expected) but its skyline is rather average

6/10

I'm impressed...average skyline but far better than what I had expected for Albania. Thanks for the nice photos.

I don't care if it's just a normal skyline.. It is amazing how they are capable of turning a city that looked like baghdad (as one forumer said) to looking like Miami!

It's actually quite a nice-looking city. Very pleasant and imaginative landscaping, some nice new buildings and good showcasing of the older buildings. I give the skyline itself 6/10 (it's attractive, but not impressively tall or grand - and this is a skyscraper forum, after all) but as for the actual look of the city - 9/10. I'd love to visit sometime!

I have heard of the MAJOR facelift that Tirana got and I must say I am impressed. Tirana has definitely gone a long way and I am happy for it. I won't rate the city for its skyline because I know that Balkan cities are more focused on their urban fabric and less on their skyline.

wtf is up with the paint?

is it meant to be a joke? no offence but it looks reallyt bad. fortunatly, when you dig deep in this city, you find a few gems. tirana is better than expected, and can be compared to the likes of Thessaloniki and Sarajevo

in a few years even our skyline might start to be good. maybe. four 40 floor towers were propposed to be built there and if they are built they will be the tallest structures in the balkans.
