Changsha 2012 (pop 5 million, metro 10 million) -came very late to China's skyscraper boom being in the impoverished interior









2021 (the tallest is higher than the Petronas Towers, 5 supertalls in the pic) -now a hotbed of startups, creativity and science tech, and one of China's hipster cities

Much of the novel "The Sand Pebbles", about an American gun boat patrolling the Yangtze in 1920s China during the Nationalist Revolution, is set in Changsha and environs. A GREAT book, made into a GREAT film starring Steve McQueen as chief boat mechanic Holman. Avoid land wars in Asia. Holman would not recognize Changsha today.

A few for Cleveland... during my 25 year tenure at SSP, we've been through construction droughts and in good times typically seen a 300-400 footer pop up every other year or so. Despite all the awful pandemic related BS, it'll be good to see the Sherwin-Williams tower go up and fill a significant gap in our skyline. According to some local journalists, we might be seeing some pretty significant new developments popping up but hey, it's Cleveland - we take it all in stride

The skyline growth of Chinese cities is better than that of an expert playing Sim City 3000

^ maybe it's 2003, but it's definitely from that early '00s era when soldier field was being rebuilt.

Austin - 1981 - 2021

Taken from Auditorium Shores south of downtown. The two photos aren't perfectly lined up, but the 3-story limestone building in the middle of the first photo at the northern end of the South First Street bridge housed Austin's City Hall at the time. That building was replaced in 2004 by the current city hall. In the bottom photo, there are two low slung green office buildings on the righthand side. Located between them is the new city hall. You can also just make out the white limestone guardrails of the South First Street bridge.

Great Austin 2022 pics, although they don't show all the talls in the eastern part of downtown. I don't have anything better, though.
