Well of course they are. No one wants to build something that demand doesn't warrant, and the supply of skyscrapers meets the current demand. Utah is very suburban in nature (by preference, not as the result of arbitrary, bad planning), so tall buildings are really a luxury. Other cities may have gotten lucky with their crop of skyscrapers, and maybe SLC will in the future. But the metro size doesn't necessitate a 600' building.
