7/10 definately a couple more talls would help strengthen its rating in ROS.

but on the positive side, it definately looks better than 20 fugly 500ft scrapers

6.5/10. Although the Terminal Tower is a great piece of beaux-arts architecture, it and the other two tallest buildings (The Key Tower and BP Tower) make for strange bedfellows--they just don't work well together. The skyline also has some ugly gaps and overall just doesn't have any vibrancy to it.

Dense and historic with some dazzling signature towers. A 9.

6.5 From the most flattering angles, it's not bad. The worst angles would be the shots taken from the lake b/c all you see are the 3 biggies and how much space is between them.

The photos taken from the Case Western area (which have the advantage of elevation) allow you to see that while the east side of downtown lacks the height around the big 3 on the west side, there are a lot of buildings over there that make for good length on the skyline.

The Key Tower is not the tallest building between Chicago and New York. Atlanta has a building that is 1023 feet tall and it is between Chicago and New York.

Sorry Drew Carrey, Cleveland sucks. theres nothing about this dull rust belt city to distinguish it from the rest; and yes every other city in Ohio that starts with C has a better skyline.

Some very nice buildings, but could use some more filler towers and density. I give it an 8/10.

9/10. Great buildings and more impressive in person. Only issue is the spacing from some angles.

8/10. I like the gaps between the towers because it allows you to admire them. It just needs a few more of them.

I love the skyline, and good heightage for an awesome city, but more density could be used as well. 8/10. Cleveland is one of my cities to visit on my list.

8, ok towers.. but isnt the one in Altanta or Philly taller?

Cleveland should really take advantage of the Lake.

Why is it call "Mistake on the Lake"?

Edit:: Cleveland's key tower is taller than that Philly tower by one meter.

Cleveland needs some love. My favorite skyline is Chicago but after returning home it's always nice to see the familiar Cleveland skyline as well. It has its own personality that a lot of other shylines lack and eventhough it only has 3 fairly tall towers, they are very recognizable. So I gave it an 8 because it has its own beauty without being a cliche American, mid-sized skyline.

Totally agree. I love this skyline, much better than I was expecting. One of my new U.S. favs. Very majestic.
