In no way will Miami's skyline be bigger than Chicago's or NYC's. They dont really have a downtown to begin with. Ever been there? Its more like 1-2 condo buildings per block, nothing is heavily concentrated like in Chicago or NYC. Just my .02.

I will agree that Miami will never catch up to New York or Chicago,but to say Miami has 1-2 condos per block is preposterous.Miami is second in the world to Dubai in building construction at the present time.Link up to the Miami Wachovia Webcam and you will see great density in the Brickell Financial District.The Four Seasons Webcam will be the best sight.

Yeah, I guess there are parts that are kinda, sorta dense (if thats what you call it), but most of Miami is spaced out high-rise condo complexes:

These are old pictures of Miami,I don't even see the Four Seasons building in the Financial district.This was definitely before the building boom probably 5 years ago or more.Theres probably 50 to 60 buildings have been added since that time and more to come.

Theres probably more than that,but right now there is a count of 50 cranes in addition to the one's that are finished plus there are a lot of projects that have been delayed. That is just in the downtown area.Most of the Miami-Dade area is booming.There is a large Latin American influence and being that the dollar is cheap they jumped on to the Real Estate bandwagon.
