Leeuwarden is beautiful in the way it is. Okay, there are just two towers. That makes a wonderfull contrast with the low surroundings. In the near future no new towers will arrise because of the new NATO highrise rules from the nearby militairy airport. Leeuwarden has a lot of other qualities which are not shown in here. The historical downtown, the canals and the typical workers houses for example. Those aspects allong with the highrises makes the city complete! No more towers necessary.
Keep the new high boxes in the other cities which cannot be destroyed anymore :cheers:
3/10 - Two good sized towers (2 points), a high church spire (1 point), and a couple of reasonably tall tower blocks (1 point). The city loses 1 point because the towers stick out like sore thumbs, and there are no mid rises to level that out.
Leeuwarden is a beautiful, historic city and has a great inner city. Tesselschadestraat isn't the best example of what the city has to offer. There are mid-rises scattered about, but no central skyline. Still, a wonderful place with a special atmopshere.
