When I think of topography, I think of mountains and hills. So in this case I'd say San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Denver, Los Angeles, and Seattle. What are your favorite cities in terms of landscape?

Greenville and western SC, known as the upstate, has some rolling hills and also a small mountain area.

Atlanta and Birmingham also have a lot of hills.

Augusta Georgia is surprisingly hilly around the Savannah River.

Huntsville has the Monte Sano area mountains right next to downtown, although the Madison suburb to the west is mostly flat.

Denver is flat

The others on your list are good. I'd add Portland OR and the small but nice hills in and surrounding Boston.

Seattle has only one flat area, and that was bulldozed in the early 20th century to make it flat. Today the area is known as the Denny Regrade, which is developing quickly with new residential and commercial. The rest of the city is hilly, and offers many fabulous youtube videos of drivers trying to navigate the hills during rare snowstorms.

I like the western part of Virgina too for topography.

I'd almost disagree with including Denver in that list. While Denver does have some rolling hills, is surprisingly flat, IMO.

SF, Seattle, and Pittsburgh stick out prominently to me as the beautiful combination of urbanity, steep hills, and water.

Agree. When I moved there in 2012, I was disappointed to find that it was flat and predominantly brown. There are parts of the MSA that are in or near the foothills if you cast a wide enough net, like Golden and Boulder, but the city itself, No.
