"The building buffs share an almost childlike enthusiasm for the city and its buildings. Never mind that downtown has lots of empty office space and that recent towers, if that's the right word, have been in the 15- to 20-story range.

These guys are high on height, even with towers seen as potential targets in the wake of 9/11. Some forum members try to tamp down tower talk or stress the need to respect the skyline's present "composition."

But mostly they dream big and tall. A common view is that the city needs its own Sears Tower or Empire State Building, maybe with residences or hotel rooms instead of offices."
