There are a lot of cities with a lot of great buildings who are so much better than other ones with one or two tallest.
I´m not sayin it because of Bogota, but your argument doesn´t make Bogota better than any other city.

Buenos Aires for example is not as tall as Santiago and San Pablo, but we have A LOT of buildings of architects like Cesar Pelli, Calatraba, Ott, Norman Foster, etc, etc...

pd. One building is just one building, not a Skyline...
Even a donky knows that, and i'm not saying that Bogota is better than other cities (show me where i said that),but this thread is about skylines and Bogota will bulid a bunch of skline in donwtonw area that's my point..i don.t care what city is beautiful than othere one or uglier.

I'm not even from South America, chill out. And like somebody said, tall buildings do not make a skyline good, look at Benidorm in Spain. That new building is too square, has no elegance or panache to its design at all.

None of them has a skyline so dense and diverse as the one of São Paulo, totally hours concours in South America.

But among these cities, I go for Santiago.

The skylines of that list will not be as dense or varied as Sao Paulo, but in my opinion, if in the region exist a skyline that doesn't has harmony, design, and a sea of buildings that denotes a bad urban planning giving primacy to the concrete, is Sao Paulo's one.

São Paulo is a giant megacity, such as Tokyo, Seoul, NY and Shanghai. Concrete is part of that. Totally normal for a metropolis of its size. But asserting that there is no harmony and design in São Paulo is kind of an overstatement. I can only think you have never been to São Paulo, for sure!!!

Your argument is a little weak. Neither Tokyo, nor Seul, Ny, Shangai, are as ugly as San Pablo.
I think you have never been in any of these cities . . . for sure

In the poll i choose Buenos Aires, is the greatest one.
Might be better if it had tallest buildings cause there is not a very tall one.

There are only a few cichlids that can go with these. Two popular ones are Rams and Keyhole cichlids.. They stay small and are peaceful for the most part.

Hope this helps!!!

Quito has height restrictions due to the proximity of its airport with the city (but that will change in 2 years : ) )
Our skyline is pretty modest compared to that of Buenos Aires, for example! : ) Quito is divided in 5 main different skylines, here are 4 of them:

Como esta en medio de los Andes, Quito es muy alargada y por eso tiene 5 diferentes zonas financieras/residenciales..... Hay una ley de restriccion de altura por el aeropuerto (Se va en 2 años ). Algunas que encontre, algunas no muy actuales:

Once Bogotá has those builidings, we can start to talk about how gorgeous its skyline is... in the meantime, I think both Santiago and Buenos Aires lead the way.

Buenos Aires, Santiago, and then Bogota and Caracas (tied for third place). Lima in 5th place.
