Here is a skyline shot that I took back in October. I kind of like the new buildings in Niagara Falls, much classier than things used to be. I remember when I was a kid and the only tall building (other than the Skylon Tower) was the Minolta Tower (the one that looks like a microphone). Things sure have changed.

You do realize a highrise on Emporis is either 12 storeys or a building with a known height above 35m

I count 226 12+ storey buildings for Edmonton and Calgary is obviously really outdated - tarjan pointe is not under construction
AAHHH - If only it never was U/C.

Absolute World in Mississauga. These models look fantastic, we can only hope the buildings turn out this good when complete.
