Atlanta and Chicago. Atlanta has got a nice long stretch of skyline. Now if they condense it all and make it denser oh my god it could be amazing. Chicago will always be top dog.

No, NYC is more populous today than ever before, and it continues to grow.

No, NYC is the largest financial center in the country. The Atlanta area is home to 12 Fortune 500 companies. There are at least half a dozen metros home to more. NYC is home to the largest number of Fortune 500 companies, with more than 80.

Atlanta is indeed growing, but it would have to have to increase that growth exponentially in order to catch LA in 10 years (and LA would have to stand still). Next to impossible.

I thought he was talking about the skylines. Atlanta doesn't have that far to go to catch up with LA in that regard.

Probably Miami. They already have super-talls under-construction(900footers, and 1000 footers) then combined that with its already linear sky-line, and all it's density and infill and viola. You'll have the DEFINITIVE 3rd best skyline in the US. Don't talk about occupancy rates, we're talking about skylines, not homes.
