I would want a count of the number of residential high rises over 8 stories / 10 stories? Otherwise a consolidated city like Nashville would never even crack the top 10.


The clear winner, IMO, is Miami. No question.

Does New Orleans have a lot of residential towers? The older neighborhoods are mostly 1 and 2 stories, so even though they are very small lots there's not the density like a tower.

It's slowly starting to change but it isn't there yet. I can see by 2030 that the population would be around 550,000. This link shows what it looks like now looking West from downtown.

Don't think you have a similar site looking east.

As for adding Uptown, I've seen different population figures for it. City-Data has it as 26,000 in 8 sq miles. But other competing websites has it as 66,000. Don't know which to believe. If it's 26,000, the population is 528,000 in 103 sq miles which puts the density at 5,126 ppsm. If it's the 66,000, the population is 5,514 ppsm. It would basically still have the same density.
I used to go to school over there off Telephone Rd, I guess I didn't think about how large the city limits were.

According to this link:

http://www.poconnor.com/resources/FY...eport-HCAD.pdf

As of 12/31/2015, the population of the inner loop is 502,000 (it's highest ever). That population is inside 95 sq miles. That gives you a density of 5,284 ppsm. So not high density at all but pretty decent for a sunbelt Southern city.
Of course this isn't the densest area of Houston. That'd be the Southwest where many people live in apartments and walk to the businesses and bus stops in the area (always crowded bus stations in this part of town). I'd say its at the densest it has ever been because of the huge increase in Latin American immigration.

Some people will get upset and say its not the right type of density, but density is density. People who live in the area go about their lives like anyone in any other neighborhood would (for the most part), which certainly creates some vibrancy when you're around there.

Miami and New Orleans are on different levels of density. Houston would come in third (after a nice gap after the NO), with Dallas and Atlanta right after. I think lately with the new development, Atlanta city may be denser than Houston or Dallas city but the urban areas tell more of the story and Atlanta falls a good distance behind.

Baltimore is the only majority rowhouse city in the south, and one of only two majority rowhouse cities in the country.

I do think in the future, there will be tracts inside the loop that will pass that area in Southwest Houston.
