Sweet! Hopefully the local economy doesn't go bad again any time soon. And hopefully the NIMBYs don't have a secret weapon waiting to be unleashed once heavy skyscraper development is on a roll again. Damn this city makes me paranoid about NIMBYs.

Maybe so. We had no new highrises go up from the late 80s all the way until 1999, and since then the city has basically been on a roll, with a few slow years from around 2009-2012 where a whole bunch of stuff remained stalled.
