Ive noticed that many big cities have small buildings in their skyline, like Phoenix. What other cities do you think have small skylines for their size?

There is a cap on skyline threads now which is so stupid. Yours is liable to get locked. Mine did.

I know, this Website has become more 'big-brother' than our US Government... I'm sick of getting infractions for no reason, and don't count on the mods giving you an explaination what-so-ever.

Not saying who, but I've gotten an infraction from a mod on here just because I made an observation about his city before.

Fort Worth, for a city of it's size, it needs to start reflecting it in it's buildings.

I think DC has some rule on how tall buildings can get. Or it had something like that when I was there in 1990. The Washington Monument is, apparently, still their tallest building.

New Mexico doesn't look to have any buildings over 351 foot tall, that one is a building in Albuquerque. Does Albuquerque count as a big city? The states of South Carolina, Mississippi, Kansas, Alaska, and Idaho don't seem to have any buildings over 400 foot. Is there any city in those you'd deem big? I guess Phoenix, Arizona might indeed fit what you mean as it doesn't seem to have anything over 500 foot.

San Jose is a big one..

I also think Orlando, for a metro of over 2 million should have taller buildings, but I think they have a height limit because of a near by small airport.

Sorry but per the room sticky, there's a temporary hold on new skyline or skyline-themed threads due to the room being oversaturated with them in the past. Please read: //www.city-data.com/forum/city-...e-skyline.html
