Ok.... let's try this again.



Out of these 5 cities with "good", "average", or "sub par" skylines, which do you think will most likely transition from where it is now into the next great American skyline within the next 10-20 years?

(Just based on your view of the current skyline set ups and how much you think it will grow...)


Portland

Fort Worth

Orlando

San Antonio

Oklahoma City

OKC man they're getting an 850' tower as we speak!!!

That's just 70' shorter than Dallas' tallest Bank of America.

Even though I'm from San Antonio, and love my town. We loose this one.... I agree with the others OKC has this with the new Devon tower. That's going to change the skyline drastically.

Wow, this was a lil' more even the last time I posted this....

And I just gotta say, I know the Devon alone will dramatically change the skyline. But it is just ONE building.

But like I said, this is based on what YOU think will happen.

Yes, unfortunately. Orlando Executive Airport is just east of Downtown.

I think their height restriction is somewhere around 440 feet or so.

I think Cincinnatis skyline in 2020 will be amazing. Out of those though OKC takes it.
