The UK arent exactly reknowned for its Skylines, but what do you think of Birminghams? :)

Birmingham from Mosely, and this is with most of the skyline missing :cheers:



This is what it looks like from the Front



and from the Back - Minus HCT and quite a few others

With the upcoming projects, height shouldn't be a problem anymore. But it needs more density. This seems to be a very favorable angle.

Brum is lucky that its centre is on a hill, so things look taller than they are. HCT is 130m (122m to the roof) and it looks like a 190m building.

It's alright... but no real density of scrapers. No memorable towers that I would look at more than once. As a skyline is one of the best in the UK... but that being said UK is not renowned for skylines ;).

But, I see great potential. The projects coming look really good, and as has been mentioned the location lends greatly to aid that. There seems to be a good amount of greenery, forget concrete city.

Overall, now not so impressive, but the future looks good :)
