Some of these freestanding structures enchances skyline like the ones of Toronto, Sydney or Auckland. Especially Toronto, would this city have that attractive skyline if it didn't have The CN Tower?

BTW, does this count?

Yes. In fact, even moreso, since the tower has a strong minimizng effect on the rest of the skyline due to its extreme height.

Yes and The CN Tower is the tallest freestanding structure. But what if Toronto has one or more scraper over 400 ft?

Why isn't the Sydney Tower here?
I'm showing pictures of towers from my travels. Since I have not been to Sydney, I have no picture. It looks like you haven't been either, because that is not your picture.

I have no idea what you're asking. :dunno:
Do u really mean 400 metres? Because that's a pretty steep requirement that many cities with great skylines could meet.
