Wow, I'm more than impressed by the skyline of Charlotte. Definitely one of the best on the east coast after New York, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Miami. What's impressive is the city is not as big as the aforementioned, and the buildings themselves are very beautiful. Such a beautiful city as well. 8.5/10

well based on city limits charlotte is a much bigger city then miami! but its true, charlotte is a corporate giant! many of the big banks call charlotte home, especially for their regional operations! as so it is able to gain the skyscrapers it has, also duke energy is headquartered here, which pumps more into the city

It's okay ... pretty good actually ... but obviously it's not NY, Chicago, Miami, San Fran, Seattle, Houston, Atlanta ... and Philly's skyline is a little bit more impressive.

To add too that list,I'd put Boston,Dallas,LA,Denver,Minneapolis,Pittsburgh all ahead of Charlotte also!That's just my opinion,but Charlotte's skyline has come so far in the last 10-20 years,just wait another 10-20 yr's!

Well, I did only say east coast, but out of the ones you mentioned, I can't say Boston has that good of a skyline as compared to Charlotte though

My bad,I should have read your post more clearly!but in my opinion Boston does have a better skyline,it's way more dense,but Charlotte does trump it in The height category!so I'd call it a wash!but for Charlotte's skyline even to compete with these much bigger metro's is amazing!No doubt Charlottes skyline is ONE of The best in The country!

The additions to the skyline in just 10 to 20 years have been amazing for a city in that size catagory. If it wasn't for the terrible economic woes over the last 2 years or so, this city would have an even better skyline because there were some very nice proposals in the works that never got built. But then again, that could be said about other cities to to one degree or another.

I never expected that Charlotte had this kind of skyline, few buildings but great designs.
