Partly but note that the current tallest scraper is in a major seismic region.

Calgary

With the Bow and Lacaille on 5th going up, a 1,000 footer would not be out of place. If the boom continues we might be seeing one.

Calgary is one of the most booming cities in Canada. But I would like to see another supertall in both Toronto and Vancouver

Calgary is the boomtown in Canada at the moment due to the huge energy reserves further north. There's quite a lot of activity going on down there right now and their skyline is fairly big for a city of its size :

It costs a lot of money to build amidst the threat of Mother Nature. It's possible to build - no doubt about that - but is it economically feasible?

Definitely Tokyo, San Francisco, NY without a spire, Mexico City, Vancouver, and in a couple of years LA.

Las Vegas

They already have a 1,000 foot observation tower, now just need some real buildings that high.

Actually, they approved twin 1,000 footers on the Strip last month, but no design yet. And there is a proposed 124 floor building downtown.
