How many 500 footers in Gold Coast?
I'd be willing to bet Miami's much larger than gold coast(including Miami Beach,which in itself is probably larger)

GC is right next door to Brisbane, which has over 1.5 million people. It's quite a large area.

The Gold Coast has no 500 footers as yet, although a couple are U/C. I think De Snor was talking about Miami beach (not Miami's CBD) which, believe me (been to both), is nowhere near the size of the Gold Coast in terms of high-rise.
