Nice shot Antrell :shades:   Chicago has the only Skyline in the U.S. that can even come close to Manhattan/NYC skyline... And 3rd place Skyline in the U.S. isn't even close!   But it's just a shame Chicago just had the Deadliest May in 21 years....(400 shootings/66 dead)

Oh yeah...Missed that Abu Dhabi pic in Business Report

Appreciate you dropping by Eric "Bryde"!  That is post card/calendar material right there! :shades:

Yours too Antrell :shades: Thanks for sharing those!  

Miami's "Linear" Skyline(from the waterfront angle) is VERY impressive!.....However it can not match(IMO)  the "Girth" of Chicago's Massive Skyline (12 skyscrapers Taller than anything Miami has)  &  95 high rises  500' Ft or Taller.......Compared to Miami's 31...however they have some awesome looking high-rises(including NEW Tallest/Panorama Tower complete in 17'))  in the works to close the gap!! 

Los Angeles is currently building their city's New Tallest/Wilshire Grand Center...should be topping off soon?? However they cheated adding a spire to over take U.S. Bank tower

Don't usually like to drop by on this thread w/o contribution photo; however had to reply to this up-tick  in activity...

All of this reminds me of our cool U.S. Skyline discussions(& Battles) in the Louisiana Skyline thread....may have to bring that "Topic" back out of the vault

^ It's the fact that BR's 5 Tallest High-rises were ALL built BEFORE 1989....yet a place like Charlotte NC 5 Tallest were built AFTER 1989

I like the mid-rise buildings too...Just need a Striking new 400ft office tower in the CBD...looking less & less likely as new tenants looking for office space at the Water Campus

One of my favorite 50's retro buildings now new Business First Bank HQ's...BR's 4th Tallest 229'ft..Riverside North(89') in background
