CALGARY, CANADA

#36

Canada's energy capital is home to the second largest concentration of corporate head offices in the country. Which means there is an unusually amount of concentrated high-rise office buildings in the CBD for a city of only 1 million people. Calgary has one of the densest skylines and although it only has 1 tower over 200 meters, it has another dozens over 150 meters. Also, "The Bow" is under-construction, is a gorgeous piece of architecture that will topple the 200 meter mark. Calgary is surround by rivers and contains a lovely mountain backdrop to the West. Overall, even though it is a small skyline, when looking at a night photo or silhouette of the Calgary skyline, one might mistake it for that of a larger city, because of the modern style of the thick skyscrapers and the 191 meter Calgary observation tower.
