Vancouver's beauty is not in it's skyline. Most of the tallish buildings in vancouver are pretty ugly actually. It's the mountains and ocean that surround it and I don't think that's what this list is about.
Vancouver is specatcular though. I love flying in there when they circle around and land over the water.
Like the guy mentions on his site, the pace of development is crazy. The "small" building to the very right of the picture (the Dubai World Trade Centre) was all through the 90's and upto '98 the tallest building in Dubai (and the UAE as a whole) It had 52 floors if I'm not mistaken.
It looks smaller than it should, because it's further away than the other buildings, but still crazy to see it look so small.
