They were forced to demolish this building due to the structural damage. You can see this in one of those pictures above. So remember that this building is no longer there when you're ranking the skyline!!!
Do you even know what you are talking about? The building that got damaged was The Tower, and not Bank of America. The building isn't even the tallest, as Burnett Plaza is at 172 meters The Tower is 138 meters and the fifth tallest. The Tower wasn't even demolished and it's still standing today. It is being converted into condos.

I think Ft. Worth has an awesome skyline. It has some cool modern towers and is very organized. Downtown is a great place to hang out and have fun. 7/10

You mean this tower?



Will have 315 condos, and the highest residence in the Metroplex when finished.

I'll get out and take some better skyline pictures than the crappy ones here, once it stops raining. There's a skyscraper that's been built since all of those photos were taken.

EDIT: oops, I didn't see John's pic. In it you can see Pier1 Place u/c, which has now pretty much finished exterior work, and is about 100m tall.

I give it a six. One of the reasons it is small is because it's overshadowed by Dallas' skyline.

A very unique skyline and a good partner for Dallas. I give it a 7/10.

Looks pretty good! I'm glad the downtown area has come back so strong since the tornado! 7.

I remember when I guess Fort Worth was hit with a massive tornado or something, and wrecked two of its tallest buildings there, man they did not look good after that. I guess they have been repaired though. Developing nicely after that though. 6.5/10.

Downtown Fort Worth is not boring; it is quite the night spot with restaurants, theaters, pubs and all the usual dens of debauchery. Laid back and far less pretentious than Dallas, downtown "Cow-town" is a gem. Should add that the city is home to some great art deco architecture, virtually none of which I have images of.

Here are some images of downtown I snurched from the web:

Fort Worth...... hmmmm a suburb of Dallas, a city in its own right, over 600, 000 people, not bad, missisauga a suburb of an equally large city also the same size as FW, but blows FW away, anyways, its hardly an impressive skyline although there a few 150m+ buildings which is impressive for a suburb, anyways the city has a plain landscape, not many highrises, although the few they have do look good, this is a hard city for me to rate.

Fort Worth =

6.1/10

thats fair right?

Very insipid skyline - as non-descript as it gets...3 ( I like the old buildings though!)
