It's kind of amazing that Seattle and Portland are 15th and 23rd in the MSA population lists, yet the skylines represent a far more distinct separation. They're so culturally different when it comes to skyscrapers. Portland likes being a really big small city, and Seattle is angling for the corporate center of the region.

The population surge in Portland is forcing this city to think more about density, and I expect Portland's skyline to look drastically different in the next 5-10 years. Some guy who owns a bunch of parking lots downtown is proposing an 11 building development called "Ankeny Blocks". He's trying to entice vertical development downtown. With the housing crisis reaching Portland, I expect a lot more mid or high rise developments in the coming years.

I'm wondering if anyone thinks it's possible that East Portland ever becomes a new urbanized neighborhood for the city, given it's current low-rise, light industrial use? With the relatively large size of East Portland and the light rail that runs along MLK and Grand Ave, it has some good urban bones to support a more dense neighborhood.

I'm not sure East Portland will ever grow much beyond the Lloyd Center area, but anything is possible.

The south waterfront is somewhat impressive, but they will eventually run out of land there.

The new Ankeny blocks are fine, and will be a nice boon, but these projects are just proposed at this point, and will likely take 5-10 years to come to fruition. However, it is a good step for Portland.

In the meantime, Seattle is rising as I write this. Dozens of highrise projects are under construction today, and the skyline, especially to the north and SLU, will be forever changed.
