I should have rephrased it. I meant those cities are the most exciting to me that are growing in scale and height in the hemisphere. Of course they aren't growing the fastest though!

I'm sorry about that.

I agree with your assertion actually apart from at one point.

Fortaleza has a better skyline than Bogota. Are you sure you have considerred Fortaleza? Besides Bogota is a northern hemisphere city, is it not?

My list would be something like:

Sao Paulo
Sydney
Rio
Melbourne
Brisbane

I don't consider Gold Coast a skyline. It is more of a beach resort, although I'd love to go there too.

Buenos Aires probably for 6th. The city aint very interesting, but the girls are :p

It is a city in its own right. Over 600,000 people live there, and it's the 6th largest city in the country. Yes, a lot of people come to the Gold Coast for a holiday, but the majority of the towers on the skyline are residential, some hotels and some hotel/residential.

I've read some silly things on here, but to say it doesn't count as a skyline because it's a 'beach resort'?

Hmm my bad I had a dumb moment, and thought it was in the portion of Colombia that was in the southern hemisphere.

Fortaleza, ehhhh Salvador would be a better option.

Buenos Aires looks like a beautiful city, but I agree its skyline isn't that great.

I think I've seen that last one before. If I remember correctly, it's only inhabited by 100,000-200,000 ( I want to say 170,000) or so people, no?

400,000 people in its metro. But... I don't think it's skyline counts, as it appears to be a beach resort

haha, you're catching on now? :P

Edit: It is hard to choose the 3rd skyline of Brazil. After SP and Rio, there are so many canditates for 3rd place. Recife is a nice one, but since it is more of a beach resort than Fortaleza, I'll stick to Fortaleza

You forgot about high tides that cover the beaches. It's a skyline for 12 hours of the day.
