It has enough attitude, and more spacious areas, but heck, it's Miami, more popular with the beaches and some famous areas in which celebrities hang out more so than Los Angeles and Virginia. Miami has a very hot skyline with tall enough buildings that makes the area what it is. I can't say wrong, but somehow, this city is the most favourite. 8/10.

Take that picture again in a few years when the majority of the new buildings will have their height and damn, this is going to be one fine skyline to look at! The gaps will be filled in, more height, and more density. I think if this poll is still around in that time the people that thought lowly of the city will be very surprised!

yes, miami does rock. my only thing to say is that wait until 2009; after our BILLION skyscrapers have completed construction. common talk throughout SSC is that miami will place within the top 10 in the world in a mere 3 years, due to the amount of construction. it is insane. probably the most out of any american city, im pretty sure it is. in fact, in three years, counting approved, u/c, and proposed, miami will be TWO towers shy of chicago. beat that L.A! (well, you probably will . . . but miami is still better. lol)

Miami - USA

Miami and Miami Beach are technically two separate cities but, for the sake of this thread, I am going to lump them together along with some of the municipalities of Miami and Miami Beach. If you look at the horizon of the picture below you can see Miami Beach to the East. Anyways, here are some pics of Miami's many skyscrapers.

An awesome panorama found by Hydrogen.


Miami’s skyline on a sunny day.


A pic of downtown with the American Airlines Arena in the foreground taken by Jamesgood72.


A view from Bayfront Park with the Wachovia Financial Center on the left.


Same view panned slightly to the left.


South Beach aerial.


South Beach’s urban density.


Miami Beach condos.


More Miami Beach condos.

Pictures of some of the municipalities and neighborhoods outside of the downtown area.

Downtown Coral Gables.


Aventura.


East Kendall


Sunny Isle


Under Construction: by the time you’ve finished this photo-tour, 10 or 15 new skyscrapers have been built in Miami.
The pace at which Miami is building skyscrapers is really impressive. If you want to see more of Miami then go to
the SSC Miami thread . Thanks to: Don pacho, Aleko, Trickykid, Jamesgood72, Borninthegrove, Hydrogen, Havok100,
Streetscaper, Suncity for taking some awesome photos.

I gave it a 7.

Pluses were - height of buildings, number of highrises, and density. Also the location on the water.

Minus were - I like boxes, but just too many. I also don't think Miami has buildings that really stand out for their individual beauty. And lastly the colors of the buildings, to me they just look to drab (for lack of a better word). I realize alot of tourist industry beach cities look like this but I don't like that look.
