You mean the Four Seasons. You must've made a typo.

I know thats the tallest, but according to Wikipedia, it has a 900 footer, two 800 footers, one 700 footer, two 600 footers, and two more 500 footers UNDER CONSTRUCTION, that means not completed, so their not counted in a city's tallest buildings unless their topped off.

I dont know if thats true or not though, but it does mean Miami will be taller than most presume it to be.

IMO I call it a tie, however, both skylines are incredible compared to other cities. Atlanta just in recent years past 500,000 people and Miami is about 430,000 and both cities have skylines way more dense than cities alot larger than them... uh hum Phoenix... uh hum... San Antonio.. etc... One thing I love about Atlanta is there are skylines in Atlanta that arent even in Downtown (Buckhead, Sandy Springs) but it lacks water... Miami has a nice tropical feel with palm trees and it sits alongside water, but its lacking more tall buildings. To me it doesnt look too much different than Honolulu or any other beachfront city.

What he is saying is that Atlanta has the tallest buildings, but Miami has more taller buildings. Both are good arguments toward considering which has the taller skyline.

most of these images only show miami's brickell and downtown area, they dont show the health district( the first photo has the health district, its the random clusters of semi highrises) or design district, some do, but 90% of the photos are what i said in my first sentence.

Yes all those buildings are under construction. And a 1,000+ building has been approved and will be getting on its way in 2011 due to it needs to wait for leases to run out in the exisiting buildings land.

Both are good skylines I just do not see how you cant love Biscayne Bay.
