San Antonio has too many other things going for it to complain about the skyline, IMO.

I agree. Led screens and billboards on sides of buildings like in LA add vibrancy as well: (They wouldn't necessarily have to be on historic buildings.)

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see anything attractive about these skylines. To me, it looks like a big ol' mess. But, then, my interest is in people, not buildings.

I just have to say that metallic and modern skylines are a dime a dozen. I love the historic feeling of a skyline which embraces the local historic. It makes it unique!!

If we added a floor for each time this has been repeated... we'd have the world's tallest skyscraper.

Well I don't know how much longer this can go on... I don't think we have enough bricks to cover all 4 sides of each new floor.

Time to improvise.
