The skyline was built with blood and tears. The construction workers are the soldiers that lead the charge to build a great skyline amidst the hazards. Whereas the architects and developers are the generals, facing the usual political bs at home from communist NIMBYS!
We on the other hand, along with YIMBY members, are the spies and intelligence services. Snapping photos, doing research, and aiding the counterintelligence movement against the NIMBY swine in the effort of building a great skyline.
My war department metaphor for the skyline progress.
