nice little thread. definitely quality over quantity. really loved the hamilton skyline. i honestly did not know hamilton was that big. your other threads give it such a homey feel that i always thought it was smaller.
Nice job Flar. Love the Hamilton pano at dusk showing all the smoke stacks flaring-off in the North End. It is too hard to get all the skyline of Toronto because it is a massive L shape. From Etobicoke to the DVP and the foot of Yonge to North York. Then you have Scarborough's skyline. I think the view of Toronto from Hamilton across the Lake really shows how massive Toronto is.
Set-backs are for Nimbys and the suburbs.
The whole ideology of Detroit and it's skyline is no more than one great big myth haha
Here's a mind bender though...in say the next 10 years+, does anyone think Detroit will have another skyscraper built? If not the new tallest, at least something to blend in well with the rest of downtown and to take the full attention off the RenCen? I do like the RenCen as it's something of it's own kind but something to rival it would be just as much of an asset.
I check the proposed/approved/under construction lists from time to time but my guess will be a no for anything built out of the ordinary although the Compuware building and the new casinos look good.
What a difference a few years makes! New tallest in Detroit is now proposed for the old Hudsons site.
