Thats why LA is special. People came here to live not squeezed in in like the 50s and 60s. We just started building up in the 80s, stuff doesn't happen that fast.nimbyhater said:i have always admired the great density of the la skyline... although not very large in size... besides that huge dense clutser there isnt much else

*sigh*... brings a tear to my eyeLosAngelesSportsFan said:Looking at this pic, and imagining all the buildings going up soon, the skyline is gonna be so much wider, with the area around staples really booming with about 10 towers currently U/C or approved (metropolis with three towers, LA Live, Elleven Project, and a few others so mayber even more than 10) and streching the other way as well with the Grand ave plan and its 5 - 6 towers. In 5 years, our Skyline is going to look twice as big.
Not sure I understand this comment...the only other U.S. CBD skylines "larger in size" by any criterion would be Manhattan and Chicago...an outside argument could be made for Houston or maybe Altanta in this grouping, I suppose. Also, LA has at least two other skylines, Century City (impressive in it's own right) and Westwood, plus the Mid-Wilshire and Miracle Mile districts. I'm not a big ol' rah rah LA booster by any stretch of the imagination, but I have to call out stupid, vapid comments containing backhanded compliments when I see 'em.nimbyhater said:i have always admired the great density of the la skyline... although not very large in size... besides that huge dense clutser there isnt much else
