Yes, not much happened in the turbulant 1980s and 1990s obviously as political unrest was pre-occupying everyone. Most of what makes up the skyline was built in the 1970s. But this is starting to change now. Below is a breakdown of the tallest buildings as per the emporis list. The list only shows the tallest 25 buildings, but it gives some idea of the activity in this height segment over the years.
