I like this city but it doesn´t have anything too interesting, is like a little phoenix, it will get better on the future, I´m pretty sure that it will grow up
for now 6/10

I've been to Albuquerque several times and it's downtown highrises aren't on the same level as many cities' suburban office parks. Similar to Phoenix, it's a city that really hasn't needed the skyscraper in it's development.

5/10

Albuquerque, while being a nice place, doesn't have a skyline really to judge. 5/10 is the best I can muster.

Those are older photos. You cant even see Gateway Center. I LOVE this skyline, it has a good layout, good architecture..........the only problem is height. DAMN (of course I have a bit of a hometown bias. ) ABQ has REALLY made strides in the density department too. I was recently downtown andtook a shitload of pics.....I'll post them and see what you guys think. ABQ RULES!!! As for the skyline.........7/10

Quite pretty, but skyline seems a bit too small for a metro approaching 750k. 6/10

It's rather average, but the tallest building looks good. 6/10

Looks pretty cool actually. Has some nice height,and a focal point in its tallest tower. On the two images I see, it seems to maybe have some density (although I dread that it is probably full of parking lots). Is far better than I had expected.
