The tower in the 3rd pic also caught my eye, and when it's completed it will no doubt make a big impact on the skyline...

...but at the moment, the skyline is truly a sad sight to see.

4.5/10



I also just wanted to add that, from an artistic point of view, this skyline gets a few points for being so "sad".

4.5
4 for the skyline (or lack there of) and .5 because they have a interstate tunnel under the bay. Not many cities with skylines have tunnels like that.

Very small and bland, the tallest building is a joke. The new tallest should help.
