A piece of the burgeoning Nashville skyline obviously telescoped but notable for the effect on the area topography.

Edit; same location of previous picture just a slightly different angle, zoom and a little bit later in the day after the sun came out.

Here's exactly the one shot I was looking for that lead me to find all the others which once I did decided to post them on here partly because they're about to become historic with the ground breaking for the citys new tallest skyscraper and another ~500ft+ coming on its heels in early 2018. I had been looking for when earlier when I posted. it's a shot of downtown taken from New Center while I wish there was a slightly larger version as it is now the details of a couple of the downtown towers come out in a strange way. But I love the area in the foreground of where it was taken. There's what appears to be a 20's era fire station with new apartments under construction next to what appears to be a wooden row house which is very rare in Detroit, its a really cool little neighborhood I'm guessing its near Henry Ford Hospital though I'm not positive. The other unique feature is how well the western downtown skyline meshes with the midtown skyline from this spot to make it look like a natural continuation of the urban core from other angles all the parking lots have a completely different effect.

It's a pretty standard shot of downtown Detroit and Windsor but with what i believe is the newish Harbor Town apartment building in foreground. I couldn't help admiring how i haven't paid attention to Harbor Town after they cancelled the previous design which included mid-rises and I think possibly high-rises for phase 2 but I really like the way it frames the skyline from the central tower of the Ren Cen to the BCBS building from this angle.

Edit; don't worry i'm not trying to hijack and make this a Detroit only thread haha ;)

I've always liked the "optical illusion" you see from malden park in Windsor where this panorama was taken. The Detroit & Windsor skylines look as one when seen from this angle you can also see the midtown Detroit and New Center skylines arrayed northward on Woodward ave. IMO it's the best way to view the urban core of the Detroit Metropolitan area but not a very well known spot for the most part. I can't wait to see to see what this will look like in a year or two with the ground breaking for the citys new tallest (1 month?) away plus the ~500 foot monroe block tower breaking ground after the new year. #cranes_above_Detroit lol credit; jodelli (2012 ssp) -

Things just look better in the summer.

Telescoped CBD with the Penobscot building looking stately.

In case anyone forgot there is a half mile wide + or for our Canadian friends ~1k waterway in there somewhere.

Another view that creates the same illusion is when you look down Ouellette ave. in downtown Windsor

While only the top of the Detroit skyline peaking out over the top of the street level environment, i really love the way the two downtowns are orientated with this view it really does look like the Griswald streetwall and Ouellette ave. are one.

Came across this one of downtown from new center today i was just googling new views from that direction a few days ago so i had to slip it in. It's hard not to want to honestly everytime i see the Book tower power washed it blows me away on the outside at least it's gonna give the Guardian and Fischer buildings a run for their money as the top jewels in Detroits architectural crown.

Since this is the last one i wanted to do a classic downtown Detroit view.
