I believe Manhattan's Midtown has a density of 100k+ and the highest in San Fran is around mid 30's

The John Hancock Towere and Prudential Tower are 240 and 228 meters respectively.

Chicago has 12 buildings taller than the John Hancock Tower and Prudential Tower. And in 2 years an additonal 5 buildings that would be taller.

But Boston has the Red Sox...Celtics...Patriots

So Chicago has to build towers...

Los Angeles's skyline is a little bigger every time I see it, but it's still pretty sad considering the size of the metro area. I mean, Atlanta's skyline is probably bigger than L.A.'s!

In terms of population density downtown, it's a misleading statistic. What exactly is "downtown Chicago" verses "downtown San Francisco". Most Chicagoans consider "downtown" to be the Loop and parts of River North and Streeterville, and these areas have only recently been popular for residential uses. Historically Chicago's "downtown" was largely a business district, and the densest residential neighborhoods were along the north lakefront. Chicago has a pretty good wall of highrises from the Loop all the way up to the northern border of Edgewater, which is at least seven or eight miles long!
