Is anything going to happen to that little gas station? It kinda ruins the whole sidewalk they got going on with the "biscayne wall". Any plans for a tower there?

Man, they really need to get rid of that BP. They really want to keep it there? Weak. The proposals look good though.

The Brave New Miami!

I gave the Miami skyline an 8.5 because I know we are nowhere near finished with it. It is not complete! We have towers under construction now that have not even gone vertical yet. It has changed radically in just three years and it will change even more in the next three years. Check back at the end of 2010 to review a decade of development and new skyscraper construction, but we still won't be finished.

I used to live in Miami when I was a kid, from 1977 to 1981. I don't remember it since I was 1-4. I showed my dad some of the current pics and he had no idea what city it was. When I told him it was Miami, he couldn't believe it. If anyone has a pic from the late 70's to early 80's to contrast, that would be cool.

That one had me cracking up! But it's true! If you haven't been here in this century, the city is totally unrecognizable. Most of the change has occurred in the last three years and will continue on into the next decade. It's as if the skyline discovered warp technology!

It doesn't say third best. This is exactly what Wikipedia says:

Wikipedia:
"Overall, Miami's skyline is ranked first in the Southeast and third in the United States, after New York City and Chicago. By 2010, Miami is expected to have one of largest skylines in the world. Of the 10 tallest buildings in the city, 2 were constructed in 2007, 6 in 2008, 2 in the 1980's and 1 in 2003. In addition, only 5 of the city's 25 tallest buildings were completed before the year 2000."

This is based on the number of tall buildings which have made it to construction thus far, so it's not subjective. It's actually a statistical fact.

10/10 Miami's skyline is world famous. You see it constantly in movies, TV and the media and it continues to get taller and bigger. I don't understand how anyone could give Miami less than 3!
