Toronto has always been my favourite but Calgary has been catching my eye the past 10 years.
Vancouver and Montreal skylines do nothing for me.
Edmonton is also about to change dramatically and I can't wait!

I have Edmonton in 5th but could see it rising to 3rd over the next 10 years. Vancouver and Montreal will have to go taller or get bumped.

You can't really tell in this photo but the taller of those twins is actually built right over the water. Those white outer structural columns rest in the water and are anchored to the sea bed. I've always liked it for that reason.

There are actually 4 in that pic now you mentioned it, the small one on the far top left corner is another regional center called High Gate located in the eastern part of Burnaby.

Vancouver has the density and certainly the backdrop but it underwhelms. There are a lot of building but almost all of them are non-descript condo towers and all look very stunted.

In many ways it reminds me of a Latin American skyline............lots of building but surprisingly lackluster skyline.
