4 buildings over 500 ft ...awesome! Problem is(to me anyways) is that you dont have a bunch of buildings 180-499ft. Needs more density 7/10

A couple other pics showing that there is "some" density around the DT skyscrapers.








One thing to note is that Tampa's skyline is growing significantly, with something like '12' 20+ story buildings u/c or proposed in the city alone.

I grew up in Tampa and although I love it's scrapers, I still feel there aren't enough. Quite honestly, when comparing the city's size and the overall size and density of it's downtown, the relationship is not traditional in the sense of most modern American cities. The most likely reason for this is due to the relative newness of southern American cities and the lack of densification. Cities in the south typically grew outward, b/c of the myriad land prospects. Even Miami and Atlanta have relatively paucity of downtown scrapers. For it's relative size, population, and regional importance, Tampa should have a downtown size on par with a Pittsburgh or even Seattle.

There is significant growth ocurring downtown though, with 9 buildings of 20 stories or more approved or u/c. There several more midrises coming up too.

The skyline IS changing plenty of mix-use highrises going up including a space needle inspired tower (Pinnacle) building density will come with those residential/ mix-use projects going up!

I saw the Tampa skyline myself The structures were very nice but there was hardly any density that killed it for me.

Like Jasonhouse pointed out, there are a lot of residential projects about to go up downtown. Since the CBD is delimited by three seperate channels of water, the density will improve greatly within the next two years. It's just sad that we don't have more commercial towers down there--we have nearly twice as much (11 million sq. ft. compared to 6 million sq. ft.) Class A office space in our Westshore district (near the airport) than we do downtown. Overall, we have the largest office market in the Southeast, behind Atlanta, but it has been spread out and cut short due to the spatial configurations of our metro.

Does St. Petersburg on the other side of the bay have a skyline? How does it compare? I couldn't find skyline photos doing a cursory search, and so thought maybe someone here might have an idea.
