Western end of the skyline looking back east towards Downtown and the southern top of bank skyline.

That is a great Calgary shot, which really flatters the skyline.

After decades of slow change, Montreal's skyline has changed markedly in the past 5 years.

A lot has happened in the last five years, but other areas of downtown now need their share of high-rise development. The Banque Nationale tower and the adjacent mixed-use building are good news in this regard, they will beef out the central/east end of the skyline.

A rare vantage of Montreal, from the Seaway bike path in Sainte-Catherine, a town on the South Shore.

I love the compactness of Calgary on this shot (from Oct., 2017)
The skyline is impressive

beauty. That ballpark is supremely situated. There was a brief moment when Montreal was expecting such a park to materialize (Labatt Park), but owner Jeffrey Loria and his sycophantic son-in-law David Samson instead moved the Expos to Florida.

Is that land still available for a ballpark or has it already been developed? Great location although I think Montreal needs a retractable roof. The season starts the first week of April and ends in November, if you are lucky.

If Minnesota can have an open air ballpark so can Montreal. I believe this spot below is still available.
