There's a city we don't get to see much of on here.
Good pics. Not a lot of buildings or density, but the height is fairly good.
I give it a nice 8.5

For just a medium sized city, it has a big suk'n trophy tower...and bloody good look'n to boot.

Don't know how I'd "rate" it just for that, but it impresses you anyway.

Very nice. It's beautifully balanced, with a variety of styles to keep you interested. It's non boxy which is good. Too bad it's not enhanced by a riverfront or mountains. I haven't seen the skyline in person at night for a while now. I need to go back soon before I go mad. It's variety of height differences as well, with a definate focal point. Not too spread out at all. It's achieveing that Emerald City feel. I give it an 8.5.

I really like the buildings in this city. The skyline needs a bit more balance. It will come with time. 7.5

Damn slanting tower!

I like the skyline alot and the biggest tower is awsome! But for some f**ken reason, the 2nd largest tower next to the BOA is getting on my nerves. It slightly slants on one side as nears the ground.

Why does it do that?!?! Its really eating at my brain!
Just for that.....7.5.

Thanks for showing those pics Nostyle. I like it better now. I thought it just slanted On one side. It was really messing with me for some reason.

Off the top of my head I can think of buildings in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Atlanta, Dallas, Seattle, and Cleveland all have at least one building taller than Charlotte's BofA.

Style, I'd imagine the difference in square feet would be due just to that strip of glass at the corners, since it grows as the building's height increases.

That pic was taken from the new parking deck on fairview by the South Park Mall.

BOA and Hearst are extremely awesome... but there's not much else there... not my type of skyline or downtown... very spaced out... no old buildings (probably because Charlotte metro was only 197,000 in 1950)... to many gaps... low density... but for being such a tiny nothingtown... to this big city today... I guess it's pretty good
