On the smaller scale of towns it's easier to see changes.

There have actually been tons of new buildings (70 office buildings in the past 5 years alone) but it's very hard to find pics on flickr of any from the same spot.
Hongkong is Hongkong!
No matter how slow it's progressing today, its place is well sealed in the elite group of the world's best skylines

You can't really tell in that photo, but Seattle just got a new 250m+ skyscraper.

Well that photo is from March 30, so maybe it wasn't topped out yet. Buildings in the US tend to go up rather fast compared to some other places I think.

Here are some newer photos that have RST.
