I'm improving. A couple of months ago I could only recognize Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.

Ukraine, wow!!! and thank you

A question: the shiny glass tower to the right, is that the future Twin tower? I see a smaller one under construction next to it. I suppose it is.

Calgary begins to really look better than Houston or Dallas! and definitly nees a few taller structure, perhaps in the future.

Even the more impressive when you consider that both Houston and Dallas are 5 times the size of Calgary.

well, regarding the speed and the amount of ongoing highrise/skyscraper projects, I suppose (am not sure) Calgary already has more skyscrapers than Dallas or Houston (and surely Denver)

What is sure: it is so shiny and so glittering, so beautiful.

Je préfère Montréal. As skylines go I think it's got a real beauty about it. There's a fantastic mix of old and new buildings and many of the skyscrapers have their own unique character - I love the individuality of the different roofs.

Edmonton badly needs some more high rises and surely a few real Skyscrapers
