It reminds me of what I would expect to see in this kind of city if it was in Pennsylvania.

For what it has, it is decent. It is always neat to see little skylines like this grow into something bigger over the years.

5/10

5.5/10

Looks like some new construction will be raising the rating.

BTW - What's the middle tower and the blue tower called?

The middle tower is called Europa Tower - a part of Europa complex that includes Europa Tower, Europa Apartments, Europa mall and square Europa (Some info here)

The name of that blue tower is unknown as the date of cunstruction. But it has the investors and will start rising soon

I love the appearance of the new buildings on the skyline, and hoping for many more to come in the same area over the years to come to add density and height.
