Ok, and the most people in the metropolitan area are working in downtown ? That's the only reason I can imagine

Miami really has never been a huge city. The metro is made up of three seperate metros that merged into one of 5 million. In fact prior to its mega-boom this decade, Miami's skyline was rather small. It is sooooo much more impressive than it used to be.

Still I find coastal skylines (those dominated by residential) slightly less impressive than some others. 8.5/10

I'm not trying to get into a debate about it. My whole point was to illustrate how incredible Miami's boom has been. Reguardless of the population, the skyline wasn't that big prior to the last 10 years.

Idk why but in real life it's 100 times better, in pictures it looks so so. And it looks too depressing in pictures, which is the complete OPPOSITE in real life.
