I agree... it really isn't until you're there that you can get a true sense of the immensity of the city... I have the same feeling for Hong Kong.

If we forget about some of the old spires we have, this must be the UGLY Royal family from Copenhagen

King: Herlev Hospital ( 120m - 394ft) - the world's 4th tallest Hospital


Queen: Domus Vista ( 96m - 315ft ) -


Crown Prince: Carlsberg HQ ( 88m - 289ft ) - Carlsberg = beer


Prince: Radisson SAS Scandinavia Hotel ( 86m - 282ft )

( a drunk German survived falling from the roof some years ago )

CN Tower is the King.

First Canadian Place is the Queen.

Skydome a.k.a the Rogers Centre is the jester.

This thread works really nicely for Charlotte, which uses a lot of regal naming and imagery because of its namesake. I think most would consider the Bank of America Corporate HQ and nearby Hearst Tower to be the "king" and "queen" of the skyline; when BoA was completed it was dubbed the "crown jewel of the Queen City" by the developers and media.

In Rotterdam: King: Delftse Poort


Queen: Montevideo (right)


Standing together, Montevideo and its neighbour World port center would also make nice couple.

I'd say 2Pru would make a good queen.

In London. One Canada Square is without a doubt King!





Whilst Tower 42 is the Queen, imposing her authority over in the city!

King of seattle- Columbia Center






-Regarded by some as somewhat dark and imposing



Queen of seattle- WaMu



-to some, her majesty resembles a spark plug, but i find her absolutely gorgeous.
