Dallas will need more towers than that to be with Houston and L.A.

I am not a Houston hater, I like Houston, but Dallas is not far behind, I submit this Dallas thread for review by TexasStar, take the downtown pics and add 2-3 tall towers and Dallas is right there. LA is a bit denser than both of them, but were talking skylines.

Downtown Houston is more on par with Downtown LA than Dallas.
downtown houston and downtown dallas are more alike than either are to LA unless we are strictly talking about tall buildings then all three are fairly similar. downtown LA is in a different league than either houston or dallas in total density downtown.

I'm not denying the density of DT LA & surrounding areas, but Houston has more tall buildings in its CBD. DT Dallas simply can't compete with either of those two cities, sorry...Dallas is more on par with skylines like Seattle & Minneapolis.

DT Dallas only looks larger than it really is because Uptown is so close by.

You are denying. You are right though Seattle & Minneapolis are just a half step behind those three.

Now, please, more incredible pics of H-town....

Photolitherland, regarding the photo of Uptown taken from up high somewhere in downtown, do you have one that shows Williams Tower from that vantage point?

Photolitherland, please include the source of those photos. The photographer's name and where you found them, (if they aren't your's).
