Once the city of Miami has its 80 -100 projects completed and the 300 projects completed in the Miami-Dade area it will be an even more impressive skyline.Right now the city looks like a sea of cranes.It will be considered the third largest city behind New York and Chicago with high-rises.This has been an incredible boom,the largest in the country and second only to Dubai in the world.

i dont think detroit is good at all. miami, i will agree, is going to be a great contender for the best skyline. its going to be very dense, just not very tall...or is it. i just can't see miami being tall, but i can see it becoming extremely dense.

well thats your opinion, but still 30 story towers are being built all over the downtown. once greektown casino, mgm, motor city, quicken HQ, other, are complete. the downtown will be dense and tall, well I guess it depends on how big Quickens building. according to skyscraperpage detroit has the fifth most highrises in the country.

the information on that website is also old. los angeles only has around 3.8 million on the website when in reality it has over 4 million. so if the downtown detroit hasn't been developing very rapidly, miami possibly could catch up or get very close. i personally like their downtown a lot because it is so dense. i also like how they have that small island off the mainland with like four tall, dense buildings...i think it would be so cool to live there.

Could the people from Seattle please quit posting pictures all the time? They remind me of an overly-self-satified guy I knew there who used to date my daughter.
People please post pics. The more the better.
