Looks dense enough and pleasantly green. Is there a chance the gaps in the skyline will fill in, or is Columbia's focus on sprawl, as it is in Greenville?

As it stands I give it a 7 for placement of buildings, greenery, and aesthetics, but I'd like to know more about the city itself. What kind of place is it? Tolerant? Liberal? Progressive? I've often heard that Columbia is an island of that kind of thing in a state not especially known for it. To what degree is that true?

I would love to live there. Beautiful skyline, especially for a city of its size. This score might be a bit much, but who cares. 10/10
