Well spread out but not too well proportioned But it still looks good and is well defined too
And hey, I love skylines next to water!

8/10

Hometown Bias?

I give it an 8.5 The pics that are used in this thread are maaaad dated! None show our new tallest, the 4 Seasons! But then again the Miami metro area is just springing up highrises like a rash!
Its true that the skyline is really spread out, but now development is taking an approach of infill. The skyline of the not to distant future (2~3 years) will show this... especially along Brickell blvd!
And plans for I think an 82 storey office tower in the CBD? If that happens then the Wachovia will be dwarfed! But we'll have to see with how the economy is going.
The skyline is great now, but flawed. Wait and see the Miami skyline in the future! If the current crop of building shows anything... it should be crazyness from here on in!

I was in Miami a few months back, (lived there for 5 years up until late 1999) and saw the Four Seasons and the Espiruto Santo nearing completion. These two towers are incredibly beautiful!! They really boost Miami's skyline. One must see them appreciate fully Miami's skyline. What Miami needs IMO is new highrises in the CBD which really haven't had any office towers built there in a long time. Also, Brickell area could use more depth. I'm sure this is going to change since there are so many new projects breaking ground there. Right now I'd give it an 8.5.

I gave Miami a 6.5, but throw in Miami Beach and the Metro's skyline would rate 2 points higher.

I love the views from the bridge. Being able to see multiple skylines at once does something for me.

The greatest up-and-coming skyline in America! Pretty good for the size of Miami right now with some nice "tropical" and modern looking scrapers, kinda boxy though, and decent density downtown. But there are so many new towers either under construction or proposed that I see Miami having one of the top skylines in the U.S. in a matter of time. Awesome natural setting next to the bay, and there's a cool monorail that winds its way through downtown. 9/10

I don't really care for Miami's skyline... though there are a couple nice new skyscrapers... but most of it looks rather boxy.,.. I don't really care for the "tropical" architecture.
