Got me there.
we have around 180 sq miles of land.. half of that isn't even solid, so that leaves around 90 sq miles of development out of 350 sq mi.

Yeah. I understand. We have lots of soft, marshland too. Plus an airport, zoo,and naval station in the city limits.

So far the only city I've found more dense in the south is Miami and Arlington.
