The Canary Wharf cluster is nice because it's centered on One Canada Square, the tallest building. The buildings in the City aren't very clustered at all, which bothers me.

In Toronto, I don't like the huge gulf that is between the CN Tower and Financial District. Thankfully, it's slowly evening out a bit.

In Chicago, I worry about the Fordham Spire and the Tweezers making the rest of the skyline look off-balance.

Yea, with the addition of the Ritz and Cadillac it will look much better.

FCP doesn't do much for the skyline.

For those not in the know, FCP is First Canadian Place:



Sturdy looking, handsomely clad in white marble... but it has had its day.
If the Trump Tower gets built as planned, it will no longer be the tallest
building (as opposed to tower) in Toronto.

The tweezer is dead (it was almost fake from the start). Plan B (actually the original plan) for that site will go ahead instead.
