hk, nyc, and chicago are examples of ideal skylines..they're all a dense, random mixture of highrises and supertalls..they're not planned and they actually have personalty..don't you guys think so?

trees also block views..

tree block views for 15-30 m

Chicago, NY, HK, don't have 8 supertalls crowded togheter. Have tall buildings next to shorter ones. And no, I personally don't want to look out the window and see the other building window at 10 m from me, and nothing else.
