I stumbled upon this site years ago and have visited it quite often for inspiration to build a realistic looking skyline.  Basically you can look up any city in the world and get some basic information about any highrise buildings in that city.  It is available in 8 different languages, ideal for our diverse community  ;).  Aside from checking out existing buildings, you can also see buildings that are under construction, demolished, or even plans that were rejected by authorities for various reasons.

The site offers several pictures of the buildings and can surely be of use to those who BAT highrises.  I probably sound like a promoter for the site, of course I am not.  I just like to trip around the site here and there to see whats going on in the world of Highrises.  I assume there are a few of us on this site.

I recommend anyone who is interested in Highrises, skylines, and cities in general check this site out.  I'll post some must see links at the bottom of my post.  Spend a little time yourself to see what this site has to offer.
