We have Brookfield Place, but I would have preferred to have at least a couple more landmark Postmodern towers. I quite like the decadent towers that went up in American cities like Atlanta at the time that referenced the Gothic Revival, Neoclassical, and Art Deco towers of the skyscraper's first golden age in the US. I'm thinking of the likes of Bank of America Plaza and One Atlantic Centre in Atlanta and Philip Johnson's One Detroit Centre.

Or the best one of all, Pittsburgh’s PPG Place.

Of course, somehow Brookfield Place slipped my mind. But the three examples you listed are pretty much what I was thinking- we actually came close if the very original Bay-Adelaide Centre proposal had been built. I feel like a PoMo pyramidal roofline is the one thing we're missing on the skyline.
