Frankly, there is nothing impressive about SP save for the sheer mass. Architecuture? What architecture? Heigh, no notable concentration really sticks out.

I think people really confuse the cityscape of SP with a skyline, thousands of 10-20 story resedential buildings isn't really SP's skyline, it really is how the city is laid out, hence, why it's more of the environment of the city vs. the city's skyline; its like if all the boroughs of NYC weren't seperated by water to form a continous, uniterrupted environment, and one were to reguard the whole thing as the skyline, which in reality, would be the cityscape, where the actual skyline is just either Midtown or Lower Manhattan.

mister, dallas wouldn't fall into that category i named, due to its size in the nation---what is it, about 6 or 7 in largest city in the u.s. i am interested, however, looking at both dallas and fort worth. when i see dallas, i generally have my eye drawn to the building that has that, imo, tacky-looking green neon and ball on top. i am surprised about the actual number of 20 story buildings in dallas. in the last year, i read on one of these forums someone's bet that, w/ the rapid growth of fort worth in its down town, it wouldn't have a great deal to do to catch up. i guess i will go to urban photos, bill cobb and look. btw, i recently was in brooklyn, and i was surprised with its relatively unimpressive show of skyscrapers.

still, i would like to see some of memphis' skyscrapers which are not in the business district, down town. not necessarily on the riverfront, but northeast or east of danny thomas blvd. btw, anyone know if the pheonix hilton project in sofo has begun. i keep seeing that a hilton is going up at front or near court, but i think they mean the approved project at linden, by the forum.

The Dallas - Fort Worth area has extremely close in airports to three of its main business districts with these being Love Field to downtown Dallas, DFW airport to Las Colinas, and Addison Airport to the Galleria / North Dallas Parkway area.
As the area is blessed because of the proximity of these airports, the skyscrapers tend to be limited in size.
There are also two airports fairly close to downtown Fort Worth. I explained all this in a prior thread dealing with the difficulty in determining what is the prime real estate in all of Dallas - Fort Worth.

To insure a great economy, one has to develop an eye for the beauty of single story structures. Like I said in another post, give me five ten story building over one fifty story building any day! Why? Well, those five ten story buidings are going to be better suited for small business. In comparison to huge corporations, smaller businesses grow faster, pay more in taxes, and utilize more office space.
In the end, the more numerous the types of buildings that incubate small businesses into larger corporations, the more numerous will be the fifty story buildings.

memphis' le bonheur hospital has just finished its' second patient medical tower at a ht of 250 ft, officially described as 12 floors. as they were building it i thought it was unusually tall for 12 stories. an architect wrote a synopsis of the construction, and he commented on the ht being unsually tall for the number of stories. they are now building an 8 level parking deck, alon w/ the new emergency room. a 16 story building has been topped out, essentially, however, it looks as if it is about two stories shorter than the other project. week before last, it was announced that a mirror image of a new existing radiological building, which is 7 or 8 stories, will be built for 160,000 million dollars. it will be connected w/ a particular type of atrium and material. nevertheless, i thought the price for the size was exorbitant. the last tallest structure being finished in memphis is the new air flight terminal flight tower and administrative offices. it has two stories under ground, but it is 336 ft above the ground, in think that includes the tower cab, which is about 26,000 sq ft and 800 sq ft in the control traffic office. i think this is a nice looking building, and it is over 186 ft higher than the other tower. now the tunica airport, near the casino district, is attempting to get a tower. they just announced this week an addition to their terminal, the second one in the last two or three years. barbour can get things done for the south memphis metrol. that area has gotten about 4 new companies being built, due to his direct intervention. the casino district already has a 32, 21, 17, 11, 9, 14 or 15 story hotels, in addition to several 4 to 7 or 8 story casinos.

pictures of some of memphis, courtsey of bill cobb urban photos. although these contain none of the aerial photos of colliverville, memphis, that is an excellent site for more pictures of memphis. much of memphis is unknown to the public and most have little knowledge of the city.

forefront, the pyramid, background part of st. jude medical center. this photo prior to the addition of the new patient medical tower and the new radiology building. a new $190 million medical building will begin being constructed in the first quarter of 2012.

There are suburbs that have more dense skylines than Raleigh. Nashville looks good though -- Orlando's downtown is more concentrated than I remember...what's the residential population of downtown Orlando?

22,230 according to Wiki. Now that's taking into account the neighborhoods that ring the CBD. And I must say that downtown Orlando has no 'donut effect.' There is a seamless transition between the CBD and nice, leafy historic neighborhoods.

Santandar is the one new tallest we are almost assured of getting in this decade. That and Brickell Citicenter almost constitute a boom for this decade in and of themselves in the Brickell Financial District.

It's one I missed posting originally when I did this aerial shoot last year because it took more photoshopping to get it to look like this than I knew how to do at the time.
