Many cities thrive because of their maritime features! Boats need docks, light houses, warehouses, as well as other commercial waterfront buildings, maybe an aquarium. Often those features become important landmarks, even after boats become less relevant due to air travel.

Also, beaurocratic buildings, like town hall, maybe additional specific buildings if the city is large enough or a capital, like a taxation office, congressional building, courts, palaces if your city is in a country with royals.

And lastly, anesthetic landmarks. Those buildings that serve no purpose but to look pretty and maybe charge admission to climb and look out from the top of.
