Here's a nice postcard picture of Raleigh in the 1960s. The skyline is at the top, just barely in view. The foreground is NC State University. Credit to Goodnight Raleigh, a great resource for old and new pictures of Raleigh.

The building at the far left is the site of our proposed One Bayfront Plaza and will be demolished in a few years. The only other building standing is the short white one in center.

Wow the difference in Miami compared today is staggering. Granted many cities have grown greatly in the last 50 years, but still staggering.

Miami is a "shock city" like Chicago was in the late 1800s and Las Vegas was ten years ago. A year ago the city seemingly needed gambling to jumpstart new construction. Now it doesn't matter: the flood of money from all over the world into Miami is likely to just shove new towers into the sky this decade.

Both were neck and neck until the 1950s when Houston took off like a rocket.
