Small skyline for 2.6 million in the metro area.

Tampa has a fairly good skyline.yes it is a little small for tampa,s size tampa is a pretty big city with 2.6 million in the metro area. but its not really floridas big city. Its nothing compared to Miami. Miami wow !!!! the Miami metro area has the biggest building boom in the world right now and the number of high rises in the Miami metro area is third only to new york and chicago.................................................. Wow anyone know this 1,600 high rises in the Miami metro area and counting. Its going to double in 2 years triple in three years and quadrupal in 7 years.The two tallest buildings in Miami in the planning are 1,400 feet twin towers 120 stories high followed buy another that is 900 ft and another is under construction that is going to be 866 ft 74 stories high.The tallest completed right now is 70 stories in Miami....................................................... there is 65 high rises under contruction and another 79 that are aprooved and another 47 proposed thats a wopping 192 building going up just in downtown in the next four years and there will be more.................................................................................................. 68 out of the 192 buildings are going to be over 500 ft. talls. those numbers are not even including all the other areas in Miami that are experiencing this boom as well such as kendall sunny isles and so on. so many its really hard to count. The latest population numbers in the state of florida is 18 million <thats not including the high percentage of illeagals. Lolo so in no way is tampa floridas biggie .Tampa is no small city though 2.6 million in the metro area and dont forget floridas other two major cities orlando and jacksonville. Anyways i give tampa a 10 beacause its a fast growing city and because its not floridas king its somtimes under estimated.

Thought id update you on the populations of florida and its 4 major cities. Florida has an estimated 18 million people to date.tampa has 2.6 million people orlando has 2 million people, jacksonville has 1.4 million to date Miami is just over 6 million people. Some people get fooled by the numbers of imaginary city boundaries.The real population is the full metro area.

I love this picture... just posted in the Florida forum (along with some others)



Just outside of that shot, on the left, a 35 storey glass tower, part of a three-tower cluster in the works, is making a dent in the skyline as it makes its way up... all in a city with a population under 350,000...

Not really i mean Tampa Bay Metro has 3 main cities St.Petersburg, Tampa, and Clearwater and they all have their own skylines but are so close together they are considered a metro thats why tampas skyline is small for 2.6 million.

from http://flickr.com/photos/dshaboy/ - great photos!

There several the above link showing the "old" skyline where the best density is. These shots are of the very new CBD - often the most published. The rest of the skyline, although older, has quite a few gems. I suggest taking a peek!

7 out of 10. 3rd best in Florida after Miami and Jacksonville IMO. Still, it is very nice and growing.

Not really any skyline. It's got a few tall towers, and it's okay.

This is from Ybor City, to the Northeast... The expressway you see starting at the right is the second level of the Crosstown Expressway, which connects I-75 to the southern peninsula, MacDill AFB (US Central Command), and one of the bay bridges. The bottom level is barely visible.
