It's a good urban canyon. May not be the one that canyon afficianos like, but it has the proper effect and extends for a good distance.

Nice. In the next 5 years we will witness in that view 3 more 120(ish) towers on the left side + 2 22 floor towers in the background, which will appear like a terminated vista. The west part of the canyon will be complete.
