While I seriously doubt that the "skyline" in the Crossroads / Freighthouse area will ever match the skyline within the loop, it's great to see more mid-rises going up as infill. I completely forgot about Hampton Inn going up, and it's right on the rail line. Perhaps when Three Light, and possibly Four Light is built, there will be more of a demand for new residential tower construction in that area (20-30 stories). I don't want to ruin the uniqueness of the Crossroads, but I won't complain if there's a few towers that match the height of the Lights if it means building on a few boring surface area parking lots.
