Well. I am from Bham and it is a nice city all together. For some reason they dont build all the tall buildongs downtown. You have to drive to Hoover or even the 280 area to see more. It is nice for the size, but we are always being looked down upon, and of course ATL gets everything first. If someone would give us a chance we would be more than happy to have more buildings to make it " exciting" for all to come and visit.

Would like to see some more non-box building types, but it's not as bad as Columbia. The buildings are beautiful up close. NIce variety of styles, and a somewhat dense cluster there. I like! 7.5/10.

I was not aware of that FAA height restriction... that's depressing...


anyways... I give this an 8

I think B-ham has one of the best skylines in the south... its few newer, taller buildings are pretty unique and interesting... but the real treasure about the city... is the huge number of pre-WW2 structures that are very beautiful... and also quite rare for southern cities... but B-ham's strong industrial heritage made this a powerful city a long time ago.

6.5

Nice form to the cbd, has a nice dense-looking cluster, and some reasonable height (not high enough though as mentioned due to FAA) but impresses me for a southern US city.

I have been in Birmingham once about last 6 years ago. Skyline in Birmingham was ok and little boring but... Nice building though.

I give you a 6.5/10

Birmingham don't have ecomany booming in downtown as like Los Angeles does. Los Angeles have alot of modern and tallest skyline. Los Angeles keeping plans for project about more tallest build in any decade.

I remember that, Birmingham have bad school system and higher water bills. It does more worse than L.A.

Very nice! A lot of buildings over all, a lot of tall buildings close together, and density, history, and a little bit of grit. What more could you want? 9!

What is the population? Well, since I don't know the actual population, I'll just base it on it's skyline. I guess it's alitle boxy, yet...It doesn't look that large as well, so I give it a 6.

6/10
