A lot of the buildings seem really dated and belong to the 70s/80s, but there's a few nice ones in there.

Overall the skyline has an impressive amount of density, but it needs a better-defined pinnacle I think, and more modern-looking buildings.

7.5

gotta give my hometown a 10. I do wish the tallest (BoA) was moreso in the center, and I do agree that the Reunion Tower looks a bit awkward from some angles, but being in it gives you a great view of the skyline and most of the city. knock 'em dead Dallas!

Nice But way to dense could be much nicer if it were spread out a little more.

Houston definately puts this one to shame. 6.5/10

Indeed full of post-modern skyscrapers. It's boring to look at if it's all the same. That's its problem, it's missing something special.

I don't like the Dallas Skyline. The only Building I am crazy about Dallas is the JP Morgan Chase Tower! Which is one (of many) of my personal favs.

The skyline: 5/10
The People: 2/10
The Dart: 8/10
The Ego: 1/10

overall 3/10.

I am not bashing it because its Houston's rival, but its just simply not that great. I liked it when I went, and Turtle Creek is really pretty. But the fact that Dallas is really nothing without Fort Worth or Irving kinda makes it a sad place. Nothing really happens in Dallas, all the action is in its suburbs. And I like how Fort Worth doesn't like to include its self with Dallas! haha... They claim to have more then they actually do, and that there numero uno no matter what. Plus the crime in Dallas is absolutly rediculessly high. But, with the Downtown + Victory Plaza + Trinity River revitalization, Dallas could easily become a 8/10 in no time. But the new Performing arts center blows...

I suppose it is a pretty good skyline, but nothing really impressive...It looks boxy as well as plain...Mabye I am being alittle hateful with my comments, but I'm going to give it a good 7.5!

BTW, it has some seriously great potential!

Sorry, but this is a rate the skyline subforum. It isn't a Houston - Dallas pissing contest. You simply rate the skyline, not the ego, the big hair, the weather, the zoos, or any of that shit

There have been much additions to the skyline I assure you and more to come! I gave it an 8 to give room for growth.. You can't see some of the green for the season and trees have lost a lot of leaves, but from turtle creek on it is a real gem. I like it... it's home!
