Calgary's skyline reminds me of Canary Wharf in London.

Based on the architectural quality of the skyscrapers, I think Calgary has the best skyline in Canada.

In my opinion:
Toronto
2-Calgary
3-Montreal
4-Vancouver.
I love Vancouver's setting, but i am not a fan of its skyline.

condo highrises no need to have a architect since they are all the same design, so basically the developers just buy the blue prints from one architecture firm and copy thousand of clone towers.
