For me it's Winnipeg, Hamilton, and London for best skylines, in that order.

I'd say Winnipeg and Quebec City in a close, almost indiscernible tie, followed by Halifax, London, and Saskatoon to round out my top 5. In that order.



Also, more skylines for the new page...


Kelowna - 210 000

Saskatoon - 320 000


https://www.thestar.com/life/travel/..._new_vibe.html



Saint John - 150 000


https://drugaddiction.ca/canada-drug...saint-john-nb/



London - 520 000

Red Deer - 100 000

Yellowknife - 25 000

Le Phare will appear at least 2 times higher than Jules-Dallaire #2 on this picture !
I think it will be built just off the picture on the left.

Yes, its a bit tricky to tell but it might appear a few inches in the frame.

Also, I noticed the building left to Jules-Dallaire #1 got a new reclad.

Oui, ça a débuté à l'automne et ça été extrêmement long à terminer !

Few London pics, figure they fit here better than in the normal Great Canadian Skyline thread











I really love the new Azure building, wish it changed the lighting colors more often. Would have taken a pic when it was purple for a bit or when it was green white and red during Christmas but it just slipped my mind

A couple of nice photos of downtown Moncton by Moncton forumer Budyser, who was able to accomplish the rare feat of avoiding (or at least ignoring) the twin phalluses of the downtown (Assumption Place and the Bell Aliant Tower) when composing his work.





The tents and the smoke arising from the Riverfront Park in the first photo is from the Rotary Rib Fest which occurred on the weekend - a legally sanction and widely attended exhibition of gluttony that occurs every year at this time.

London looks quite impressive from certain angles. Really the biggest drawback is the city’s lack of vantage points

Looks like an old image of London too, without the new Azure tower. London will look somewhat different from it's skyline soon enough with some of the skyscrapers going up now.

Is it finally starting to bulk up to reflect its size? It's definitely added quite a bit in the past decade or so.

Azure is great, plus Riverwalk and 515 Richmond will make a good difference. Theres quite alot proposed that will make it even more dense, London just really needs to start building higher now.

If you’re talking about London it already does reflect its size pretty well, when compared to say Halifax or KWC
