Miami skyline has changed a lot especially the past 4 or 5 years but unfortunately at ground level, not a whole lot has been imroved...transportation system still sucks, metrorail for all these years just one line!! and has not extended, the airport tho has gone massive expansion with a transportation hub...but where's the damn track that goes to the airport?? Miami beach tho has improved tremendously but has gotten to be very expensive to live...Miami need to build more highways and expand the ones that it has, traffic has gotten unbearable..especially with a major boom in residentil towers being built simultaneously...ah yea...EXPENSIVE ones that most Miamiams can't afford....who the heck are buying them??? I think Miami is booming at the seams but none or very little done to aid the rapid development...soon the city will be congestive and quite unpleasant to live...a shame.
Politic in Miami just shit, really unfortunate that Miami is run by goons that are corrupted, not a day go by with no news bout politicians embezzling money. Another thing...I'm not being racist or to discriminate anyone...ya know what it takes to make it into politics in Miami...be hispanic, then you have a better chance.

^ boy what a sorry post...obviously English isn't your first language either or other than that you don't know how to write so I wouldn't be complaining about hispanics since they make up about 60% of the population!
Metrorail will take years to expand & as for new highways and expansion tell me where Miami is going to build them???? The area has no room to build anymore that's why so many highrises are being built.

you're talkin to me? where to build highways...are you telling me that this is IT??!! no more highways for Miami and just continue building residential highrises and ignore the need for better highways and transportation system to help cater the growing community? very smart....yea got space to build highrises but no room for highways...and metrorail, gonna take YEARS??? are you kidding me?
bout my english...it might not be perfect but I ain't stupid.
as your comment to a 'sorry post' why...truth hurts? wake up and smell the coffee buddy...

There really is no space to build a new highway in the metro area. local goverment can only widen the roads more and extend some of the existing ones. a while back they were gonna build one but it wouldve cut right in the middle of neighborhoods and you wouldve had to destroy existing buildings.
As for highrises of coarse theres gonna be plenty of empty lots and parking lots to build buildings on!

Miami is scary with so many tall buildings being constructed, it used to be sparse. Now its like downtown is one big construction site. Miami has a ways to go before having a world class skyline, and the 1200' twin towers would have been nice to bring it up there.

I give it a 8.5 for now, but want to see what it will be like when all the new construction is done.

how bout building double deckers? or improve public transportations? Downtown Miami is moving fast and I don't think the city has the capacity and enough infrastructure to support it..I see a property crash and major disaster...who could afford those 50 storey high end condos? I used to live on Brickell key, forget the rent, building maintenance alone was 650 bucks amonth...and they're askin almost a mill for a tiny 2/2 with poor outfit.

One of my favorites in the US, the tropical setting makes it unique.

I also like the development going on, very impressive.

9/10

8.5. A few years ago I would have agreed with people who said it was kinda boring. Now Miami is getting... taller and denser. With a few more 'artful' towers I can see Miami really getting out there in terms of top skylines in the US.
