I think Dallas needs atleast another tall building. Something to rival BoA tower. Just how ComCast tower balanced out Philadelphia's skyline and made it impressive. It's good nonetheless

It's not quite up to par as BOA but it's getting up there, definitely a nice addition to the Arts District and the CBD as a whole. Still a few more empty parking lots to fill up, and then I think Dallas will have one of the best skylines in the south =D

If we're talking about "the south" as in "the southeast" I think Dallas already has the best skyline, Houston, Miami, Atlanta, and charlotte may be competitors, but Dallas looks the best in the southeast in my opinion.

I think Houston's skyline is better for sure, and bigger.

Dallas's is good though, and as a fast growing city the skyline should grow too.

The Museum Tower didn't really make much of an impact to the skyline as I hoped it would.

Disappointed. I thought Dallas was becoming a bigger city. The downtown looks really small. Most of the growth is going outward in single-family homes, I guess?

Out of the core of the city, yes, but there's alot of mixed use, highrises going up as well now.
As for the single family homes, it's a Sunbelt city so it has been more prone to sprawl. You seem surprised by this..... You don't really know much about Dallas, do ya?
