#1 of design? I honestly do not know who I would give that to ( in my own opinion) but Miami? I would give Miami a 7.5 now moving up to an 8. I am totally impressed with the amount of buildings going up and at the rate they are going up. I think the skyline is looking denser and denser and it would be wonderful for the city to get those new supertalls that are approved and proposed. My question for design, however, take it any way you want but overall it's kind of boxy and bland.

Not a bad looking skyline by any means and on it's way to looking a whole lot better but it's time to step outside the box and maybe put some crowns and spires out there.

You must ov never walked in DownTown Miami...I've walkd the whole city of New York and chicago 4 days admiring their buildings but 2 me they ALL look the same. yea every city has that 1 outstanding building but those are too plain and boring for me. I Love the art deco, palm trees, Bay n Beaches that are 2 offer down here. All we need is the Friendly people the North raised, and Miami will be IT.

^i think your overbiased for a discussion on best design, although i agree that our skyline is very above avrage im not ready to say its #1....anyways i've very proud of the amount of change that our skyline has experienced....i recently looked at the first post, a picture posted by rainier meadows flash forward and that same picture is severely outdated with about 30 new towers being built there after.

Actually been there quite a bit. I have family all over South Florida. I wasn't trying to bad mouth the skyline. Not at all and infact I thought my answer was pretty fair to say the least.
I really don't know of Art Deco outside of South Beach but the City of South Beach really took that style and ran with it. The fact that you think every building in ny and chicago looks the same leads me to believe you are a complete liar and have A. Never been to either... or B. Forgot to actually look up.

I wouldn't go knocking them over a fair and generally good statement someone mentioned that may have rubbed you the wrong way. Both of those places have some of ( if not all) the best stock of skyscrapers from each era. #1 is an opinion and subjective and I completely respect that but my dude, it is quite boxy and glass is good, but work with a design other than the rectangle, cylandrical table roof. That was only an observation I made that had been said without any bad intentions. Just think it would do better with a signature tower, a break from the table roof box and some more buildings that significantly break the 700' mark.
Toss in 3 900', 6-7 800', 2-3 1000' to match the forming skyline now and I'm sold on it.
Still say 7.5 on its way up.

I think what southFLBoy is trying to say is that NY, Chicago, looks a bit on the gray, brown, and black side and Miami looks new white green and blue..

but designs? Art Deco? we must respect NY, and Chicago...After all they are the birth homes to the skyscrapers
and the Capital towers
which just started construction is inspired by the all famous and great Empire State building and Chrysler building.

Well said visonMIA!! I like the latest ones under constructions but the ones that are completed, condos I meant are quite a dissapointment. Miami Beach on the other hand has better designs..just my 2 cents. Capital Towers tho are great lookin duo!

It has its fair share of height and density, but there's little to no architectural distinction among its skyscrapers.

8/10.

Hi I'm new in here, I don't know how this site works ( I have an account in skyscraperpage and there they have a section of " found city photos" section), but here I'm going to post these photos that I found in the Miami thread. I enjoyed these photos a lot and I was wondering why they weren't in here. Thanks a lot VisionMIA, YOU ARE A GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER.

These were taken by forumer VisionMIA:

Some angles you could mistake Miami for Dubai. I had a great time back here in June.
