Do you guys see huge growth in skylines amongst US cities? With urban populations increasing and businesses expanding once the recession is over, do you think downtowns will explode with new skyscrapers?

Manhattan is getting many huge additions to its skyline it will definitely look somewhat different from how it looks now.

The skylines of San Francisco, Miami & Los Angeles are going to grow a lot too.

over the short term, not much change

over the long term, when oil starts to rise again, people will start to move back to the cities, and the only place to go is up!

(well, maybe down, but I dont see alot of demand for that!)

San Francisco skyline is going to grow a lot as well as LA skyline once most of the projects gets proper funding and capital.

I know some people are saying NYC,but I don't think it will change that much.Even though more buildings are rising,it seems that due to NYC already impressive size and scope,that might be a fault for much change to occur (at least in the near future).As far as which cities will grow,I think Atlanta,San Fran,Seattle,Nashville and Chicago the most.Miami is another questionable city.They have SO MANY frekin condo towers everywhere!At this moment it could take 7-10 years for it to start building anything noteworthy. Definitely not anything as grand that has happened in the last decade there.

I wish they would come up with better names for those buildings instead of just 616-708 avenue
