Post skyline photos of cities between only the years 1980 and 1983

4 posts in this topic

It's interesting to see how skylines have changed since 1980.

In the US many skylines began to grow after 1983.

Many cities in Europe didn't have much of a highrise skyline in 1980 as is the same in China.

I don't have any pics of the skyline but most of Houston's skyscrapers were built in the 70's and early 80's and then kind of died off. It picked back up in the 2000's with completion of enron towers and such.. but look at this:

1. JPMORGANCHASE TOWER 305m/1,002f, 75 stories, 1982

2. WELLS FARGO PLAZA 296m/972f, 71 stories, 1983

3. WILLIAMS TOWER 275m/901f, 64 stories, 1983

4. BANK OF AMERICA CENTER 238m/780f, 56 stories, 1983

5. HERITAGE PLAZA 232m/762f, 53 stories, 1987 :huh:

6. 1100 LOUISIANA 228m/748f, 55 stories, 1980

7. CENTERPOINT ENERGY PLAZA 226m/741f, 47 stories, 1974

8. CONTINENTAL CENTER I 223m/732f, 53 stories, 1984

9. CHEVRON TOWER 221m/725f, 52 stories, 1982

10. ONE SHELL PLAZA 218m/714f, 50 stories, 1971
