This impressed the hell out of me:



8/10 For such an attractive skyline in a not so big city.

here's a distance shot i took in early january



sadly, the 14-story with the funky satelliate dishes is no more...but it's being replaced with better mid-rises (at least functionally, and architecturally.)

a new skyline is set to go up in the area around the stadium (formerly an industrial area) with a lot of luxury condos.

I thought I had cast my vote, but it's never too late: 8/10. I think Columbia has a very nice skyline, especially when taking the city population in consideration. If all the taller buildings were clustered together a bit more, I would have probably given Columbia's skyline a 10. With at least 17 buildings between 15 and 25 stories, the skyline would have looked even more powerful. Columbia has been a very pleasant surprise and I am looking forward to visiting some day in the nearest future

waccamatt, thanks for pics of the new "2nd skyline." of course, the old 2nd skyline was the cluster around 5 points...christopher towers and such, or so it always seemed to me.

yup. there's 3 or 4 highrises, 12-18 stories that would help if they weren't at a lower elevation than the rest of the skyline.
