Midtown/Southend is developing one as well. with a couple buildings planned. 6, 8, 12, 15, 18, and 20 all in the works being built. Supposedly there are plans for the 615 E Morehead Parcel that was to hold a 30 story building, it'll be around 25 floors mostly office and a lil bit of residential.

When I think of multiple skylines with high rises miles apart I think of Atlanta....There should be no cities such as Greenville, etc even posted in this thread. Not being funny, not even Charlotte really. As much as I've been there, you aren't awed like you are in Atlanta with the different skylines, Atlanta's skylines are as bigger than most of the medium sized cities in the US.

Um...shut up, sike, but your just jealous that Columbia isnt even planning to have 2 skyline's, arent you it's okay we the cities that will or have 2 skyline's will comfort you Columbia. And what you said up there does it apply to Baltimore too?

I'd rather have two REAL skylines than be in denial and make up some shit. Nobody is jealous. Baltimore's skylinE is so insignificant to me I can't even think of what it looks like right now unless I google it right now. Thanks

Baltimore has a nice skyline...but I can't think of more than one. The harbor and downtown are not separate skylines, but all that and surrounding areas are close enough together to be the same skyline. If there are other clusters of buildings in Baltimore then I haven't seen them.

I mean we have different skyline's, but all of the major one's are mixed into one district making it seem as if they are one.

By all means correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that Houston did the multi skyline thing before atlanta. I should say it had been done but Houston was the city that did it more extensively that anyone else.

Shreveport really only has one skyline (downtown), dominated by the 24 story/364 ft. Regions Tower.

I was thinking the same thing, I think that Uptown Houston is acutaly bigger than Midtown, Downtown Houston is bigger than Downtown Atlanta, but Houston may not have a area like Buckhead in size, but Houston is preety big so you cant just say they only have one skyline too.

Uptown Houston is MUCH bigger than Buckhead. If Uptown were Houston's main skyline, it would still rank in the top 10 in the nation for office space.

houston is known for not having zoning which breeds multiple skylines in the oddest places.

Myrtle Beach, SC skyline has the most tower's in the Carolina's, but im sure if Charlotte was on the water like MB is it would have even more tower's than Atlanta, and MB.

and North MB has a small skyline but I couldnt find a pic of it, so somebody who has a pic can post it.

Hampton Roads Metro Area

Im going to treat each city equaly so im going to say this is one of V.A. Beach's skyline's because if the point in Greenville was to be built I would have said it was one of our's.

Another V.A. Beach skyline

Norfolk, VA Skyline

Norfolk, VA Skyline

Hampton, VA ultra small skyline

Newport News Medium sized skyline

Portsmouth, VA skyline
