This Skyline stretches across the horizon - and for that it's impressive - I will consider this a seasonal community (ex. Myrtle Beach) so therefore will be lenient on grading - I'm sure the hotels appreciate the little distance between each other so as to be seen!

9/10

Nice city. I like the canals, waterways, the greenary and of course, the beach. It does remind me of Maimi, too.

As for the skyline, it is ok. 7/10. But when Q1 gets built, prolly be 8 or so...

Needs more depth. Not much variety. Not that bad though. 6.5/10.

Nothing to get too excited about... but pretty extensive for a city of its size.

6.5

3, this is such a typical site you'd see in any beach resort. Does this even qualify as a skyline?

Wow, you give pretty lenient ratings! What's New York City, an 18?

You are a joke, your comment has been duly assimilated and rejected.

Yes, for a city of only 450,000 people it kicks arse.

At the moment I would rate it at 7.5 ,but in a few years time probably 8.5

It seems that many people are being led to beleive that the Gold Coast is just some seasonal community, well most of the high rises are actually apartments, and behind the skyline is miles of homes. Many retirees live here but also many young families choose the Gold Coast to raise their families.
And yes it is also a very popular tourist destination, with 4 major theme parks like Sea World, Warner Bros Movie World and Dreamworld.

The skyline will change dramatically over the next 5-6 years with Q1, Circle on Cavill, and CULWULLA has mentioned there is another 230m-range building being planned, that is 3 buildings over 200m. Also like the rest of Oz, GC is going through a major boom and there's loads of high rises planned, U/C etc.

And in reply to Slugradio's comments -

And for a so called "tourist resort", these are just some stats from skyscrapers.com comparing GC to your city -

CALGARY - High rises
Completed - 182
U/C - 9
Approved - 5
Proposed - 5

GOLD COAST- High rises
Completed - 212
U/C - 24
Approved - 8
Proposed - 11

Well, it seems that this "tourist resort" is actually ahead of your city, by number of high rises.

I can never understand why some people knock beach resorts that highrise skyscrapers???

These are skyscrapers just like anywhere else. Sure, being apartments they look different, and I can understand people prefering commercial highrises as they are often more sleek, but still these places do have the same effect and are warrented for comparrison or discussion.

That said, I love the Gold Coast, as I do Benidorm in Spain and Miami Beach (as well as all the others in the world)

The Gold Coast is relatively new, which means it doesn't have the density of Benidorm by a long shot, but many of the scrapers are therefore more modern. It's higher than Miami Beach - although less dense, but I don't think the canals work (i.e. look) as well as the ones do in Miami.

Still, I put all three on the same level, and that's quite high.

I say 8/10 for Gold Coast. It's beautiful and an asset to Oz.

(Come to think of it, most of the people that don't like these beach resorts seem to come from cold climates - where such things could never exist even if they wanted them to)
