had never bothered to read this post because I knew some of the crazy posts would go up. I was right. Dallas just evokes a certain emotion in many. Surprised about so many Houston comparisons as well as people saying its not green and even saying "dusty" lol.

Dallas' skyline has not changed much in the last 20 years. Mostly shorter towers have been built all around Dallas and its metro, former multiple shorter towers. That is beginning to change. Victory has started and is building taller and taller to the point that the skyline will finally change. Even more exciting is that building is starting in the CBD itself as well as lots of building speculation going on. We are all fortunate to witness this. Most skylines that build a lot have so many buildings that rapid change in the skyline is almost unoticeable. That's never been the case in downtown Dallas, as the buildings have gone up generation by generation with gaps between and in a pretty densely packed manner. We are entering one of the rapid building periods as Uptown is almost full and demand has pushed most of the speculation south of Woodall Rodgers. Should be very interesting to look at the skyline by 2010 as most new projects will be very noticeable additions. Should be fun.

From a few days ago. Can't wait for Victory One to start next door to the W(building under construction. It will be 600+ft tall.



as for comments about wanting more building throughout the city, there are plenty right Uptown. The photo is a bit old. Right before the W broke ground on the left of the pic.

Fountain Place is one of my all time favorites. Never looks the same way from any given angle. Love the way Dallas & Ft. Worth add a sort of "neon" look to the skylines at night. Reunion Tower is great too.

9.5 out of 10.

What keeps amazing me about a lot of American cities is that you have the CBD with pretty high skyscrapers and practically next door it can already looks so small-townish...

Still, there are some very fine buildings in the skyline which made the skyline top-notch in the 80's. At the moment I'll give it a 7+.

Fountain Place is still my favorite Dallas building though!

Great shots Rantanamo.. Dallas looks beautiful! I can't wait to see how the skyline will expand the next couple of years.

So being born and somewhat rasied in the Dallas area, I love my home city. However, seems like many of you have a point as the skyline is somewhat dated. I just have to ask those of you in the know, when is Dallas gonna have a new signature tower? Or even an updated skyscraper or two thats at least above 700ft. tall? BTW, I rated Dallas a 10

Disney Dallas

Looks self-conscious and contrived, like Disneyland.
