WTF? Some of you guys post pics that don't have the slightest relation to a skyline.

The skyline is bland. 5.5/10

Most people are guilty of posting general city pictures in these "rate my" threads.

PS. Mariah Carey remixes are bland.

I miss home (sniff). I gave it 7.5 but that was generous. The density is good but apart from the historical buildings (19th and early 20th century) the architecture tends to be bland. Lots of badly executed International Modernism. Looks like the result of Public Works demanding maximum allowable square footage at the lowest possible price. The skyline needs more variety, height, historical contextualization (NCC HQ is good), point towers!! Let's hope all goes well with the proposal for 150 Elgin; it's a step in the right direction. Claridge's proposals for the Lebreton Flats, however, are not. Major disappointment. Does the city have a design committee? 10/10 for physical setting.

Of course we all want more height here. But isn't the density and orderliness impressive?
