ATL has the best skyline
KC looks to be the most dense

of these cities, i've only visited ATL and although it was fun, i'd imagine that
Denver probably has a livelier dowtown scene...just speculation.

Atlanta has a great collection of pomo buildings
KC has a great blend of art deco and pomo
Denver's skyline bores me. I've looked at many many photos seeking an architectural masterpiece to serve as its focal point. Well there doesn't appear to be one. It may be my least favorite among the larger skylines in the U.S.

I kind of like Denver's. I appreciate the art deco period but the modern buildings just look much cleaner and obviously more modern.

I dunno, modern buildings just put me in a better mood than some of the older art deco buildings.

Ive been to Atlanta and Denver and I still cant figure out which skyline looks bigger, Im thinking ATL, throw in Buchhead and Midtown and there is no comp but Ive never been to Kansas City and I dont know what to expect, It looks really good in pics.

Atlanta, dense? It has the best skyline, but density isn't its strong point.

Denver i guess has the densest skyline by the look of it.

Yeah if all you go by is the pics the OP posted, downtown Atlanta looks pretty spartan compared to downtown Denver.

So let's try some other pics.

Denver






Atlanta

Denver just looks like a Tetris board to me. Box, box, box, box, box. While Atlanta isn't very "dense," at least its buildings have texture, depth and dimension.
