More massive buildings are needed (especially between new Orleans and Montevideo) to create a dense skyline.

that's true, but then you need to have higher towers! De Rotterdam close to thin highrises of similar height just looks wrong, imho!

All in due time. The Rotterdam will add some mass to the skyline, filling up a gap. Higher towers in the vicinity are still planned (check Baltimore and Zalmhaventoren), but there's always the question of money and demand.

That said, I'm a big fan of pho2ography's updates. Really good stuff
