WOW, some people are saying some of the smallest place's have a skyline. To me Raleigh can be considered to have 2 skyline's uptown and midtown, greenville, nc to me has a small mid-rise skyline called the medical district, greenville, sc has 3 the way by the way you guy's are descibing a cities skyline: Downtown, Midtown, and the Hospital, and another that will come in the future (Uptown or I-85 corridor), Baltimore City has a lot Downtown, Harbor East, Westport (in the future), Guilford, Canton (in the future), John Hopkin's, Mount Vernon, and maybe another one that will be bigger than Harbor East.

I don't think Sharpstown is a "skyline." Atlanta airport isnt either and it does not have a building that is as tall as one in Sharpstown. 3,4,or 5 buildings do not mean you have a skyline. Atlanta has 4 (DT, Midtown, Buckhead and 285 between GA 400 and I 75) and Houston has 6 (DT, Uptown, Med Center,Energy Corridor, Westchase, and Greenway Plaza).

The total Atlanta metro has a hell of a lot, I know the leading metro's with the most skyline's are: Baltimore/Washington Metro, Miami Metropolitan, Atlanta Metropolitan, and the Houston Metropoltian. I think the Baltimore/Washington Metro lead in amount's because it crazy up their. Which do you guy's think have the most?

Atlanta has 7...
3 main skylines: 1.Downtown 2.Midtown 3.Buckhead

4 suburban skylines: 4.Cumberland/Galleria 5.Airport 6.Perimeter/Sandy Springs/Dunwoody 7.Emory/CDC/Decatur

Perimeter: tallest - 34 floors...50+ towers over 10 floors
Cumberland/Galleria: tallest - 26 floors...40+ towers over 10 floors
Airport: tallest - 17 floors...20+ towers over 10 floors
Emory/CDC: tallest - 21 floors...30+ towers over 10 floors



I-285 between 75 & 85 is an awfully expansive area to call a skyline - roughly 10-12 miles. If it were being defined by I-285 exits:

Perimeter/Sandy Springs/Dunwoody skyline would be from Ashford-Dunwoody Rd, past GA400, Roswell Rd, Glenridge, to Riverside Dr...mostly in Fulton County.

Cumberland/Galleria/Vinings would be from Northside/Powers Ferry, past I-75 and Cobb Pkwy to Paces Ferry Rd...mostly in Cobb County.

I'm from Baltimore and I don't even know how many skylines we have. I think we have 1 because Habor East wouldn't be considered a skyline since it'll only have 4 skyscrapers when the Four Seasons and Legg Mason are completed..So I would say that Baltimore only has 1..for now at least...Downtown/IH, like every city has

In Nashville, Ron-E you forgot Belle Meade. Brentwood and Cool Springs also have buildings in the 100 foot range.

The City of Miami has 8. The biggest ones are Downtown, Brickell, Wynwood, and Midtown. Smaller ones are Coconut Grove, Civic Center (medical center) and small sparce ones are Coral Way and Little Havana. Outside the city limits in Miami Dade County alone there are 7. Large ones are Coral Gables, Miami Beach, Sunny Isles, Aventura,and Dadeland. Smaller clusters that make a skyline are Doral and Blue lagoon/Airport area. And if I were to go as far as some people here I would and could add some clusters of office buildings near highways and tiny clusters of condos near the beach or a dense group of condos in buildings in Hialeah.

See I don't do what they do, they put small cluster's of building's down as their skyline. Also your trying t say Miami metro has the most skylines, fine with me, but I still think the Baltimore/Washington Metropolitan has the most, ill post every skyline sooner or later.

Even though D.C. is supposed to be the metropolitan's main city im not going to post a lot of pic's of it's skyline.
Silver Spring, MD this city is booming.
Bethesda, MD this city to me has two skyline's North Bethesda, and Downtown
image hosted on flickr
Rockville, MD nothing to say about it
Gaithersburg, MD this is a booming research city, a lot of construction was going on last time I went
Gaithersburg, MD Construction like I said
Part of North Bethesda, MD skyline
Another part of North Bethesda, MD skyline
And sorry but another part
National Harbor, MD (future skyline)
Rossyln, VA (Arlington, VA) constructive skyline
Crystal City, VA (Arlington, VA)
Another pic of Crystal City, VA
Courthouse, VA (Arlington, VA) yeah Arlington is that big
Ballston, VA (Arlington, VA) now does everyone understand why I say Arlington may have the most skyline's in the south
Tyson Corner, VA one of the nation's largest business district's
Part of Alexandria "old town"
I couldnt really find a good pic of Towson, MD skyline
and that's folk's I hope some of my Baltimore/Washington peeps come down here to look and help me out. This conclude's my theory of the MD,D.C.,VA area having the most skyline's, and there is even more than that im just to lazy to post them, D.C. has way more part's than what I showed.

Calm down im just playing around, but it does seem like your stating Miami has the most skyline's, and if you look at the first post in this thread I was trying to see what city has the most skyline's.
