So you do not like high rises? I guess you do not like downtown Denver or Chicago?

You are 100% correct.

Hey Bob I also agree with you on that. I enjoy the Springs because I can see the mountains and not a building instead.

Yup...I vote for no skyscrapers. Keep the mountains visible! In my own little utopia, everyone would have enough yard that allowed a mountain view for all! Pop! My bubble never lasts long

That is why I think Pueblo will have the highest building in southern Colorado, Pueblo wants them and the Springs does not.

Either way is not bad its just a different viewpoint from different cities!

The Cooper Tower wouldn't block that much... I'm a fan of 8-10 story buildings throughout personally rather than an occasional skyscraper, because that gives a better urban feel, but I might be in the minority... The whole view issue is a little ridiculous though in my opinion. We are blessed with great mountain views, but unless you live directly east of downtown (couple of blocks from Shooks Run), the views are not an issue... In fact, they would create a great foreground to the mountains (assuming they are not hideous 70's federal buildings).

Personally I would like to see Pueblo get some sky scrapers 50 stories or higher. I know that's not in the cards in the next 10 years, but I can dream! LOL

IMO Cooper won't block my view but it will open the door for more skyscrapers to be built that will eventually block out the mountains. If I wanted skyscrapers in my sight I would have moved to Denver.

Cities are defined by their sky line, if Denver and Pueblo have a nice sky lines and the Springs does not it will make it look like your city is standing still.
