Coldrsx, your photos of CN Tower are beautiful. Edmonton's first skyscraper is such an elegant building.

Thanks for the photos. I do love the classic symmetry of the fountains and the dramatic view it creates...

Those cranes are now visible from the northwest corner of the city. Every week now should bring a greater impact to the skyline from the north view. Exciting to see.

Love that first one and one near the end. Our skyline is becoming fairly dense in some areas.

Sweet jeebus, our skyline is starting to look fleshed out and multi-dimensional now.

I'd love to see a 10-year comparison of the skyline between 1987, 1997, 2007 and 2017 just to see how fast or slow the skyline has changed in real time... Obviously 90% of the changes have taken place in the last 10 years, and I could only imagine what a complete-ish 2027 skyline would look like...
