Against skyscrapers in general? Not really. Probably a by-product of having such a large latin american community. Random highrises are just accepted as part of city living. Most complaints are just from people living in an existing tower complaining that a new tower would block their views.
And there is a lot of nimby-ism from the gazillions of new downtown residents against things that existed before they got there (i.e. clubs, noise, ULTRA...etc).

This is what I like to see, not just style, but them being used (and not for washing or parking bikes).

Monaco

Spain

If they're not in use alot, then they need to add to the architecture.

-Not balconies I know, but you get the idea:

Malta


India

As opposed to this, the Heygate Estate that was long considered the ugliest building in London. And that the brutalist appreciators are getting all misty eyed that's it's been torn down. The design is not so much the issue but the fact the buiding went on for a half km, just endless blankness on the street.

The terrain might have something to do with it to some degree as well.

In western cities a lot of the NIMBYism is: "Don't block my view!" "Don't block my mountain vistas, don't block my valley vistas, don't block my ocean vistas!"

And privacy issues like: "Don't look at my house/yard from your balcony!"

Balconies give a building a residential look, and I have a warm spot in my heart for residential.

But to be usable, a balcony should be inset into the building with three walls, not sticking out where both the wind and privacy are issues.
