Honestly, the Congress has some prime lots to build some HUGE towers. Only a matter of time if we are being real with ourselves. Same goes with those lots that the L cuts through in that area. Some skyline changers in 20 years will be there, no doubt about it

Sunrise, storm & sunset. Not best example, but recent discussion around color reflecting against the skyline can also be seen in the morning.
