Glassy, smooth, tall, and elegant, but still there just isn't enough of it. 20 years will do wonders for this town.

Once again, this is the 3rd best skyline in the US. Not just Hearst and BOA. the WHOLE skyline rocks (for those of you who think the skyline sucks.) Which is the most stupid thing I've ever heard.

I agree with VT, but say in the top 10. In any case, it won't take 20 years. There are already several buildings under construction or breaking ground in 2004 that will broaden the width of the otherwise centrally-focused ridge of skyscrapers...see "The South" forum for images of these new buildings in the "Charlotte Construction" thread.

A classic. Sets a new standard for Southern skyscapes. Very sharp and definitely distinctive. Wish we were so lucky.

It's nice, but not spectucular. It really needs more buildings of style and height.

7/10

It is a beautiful, clean city.

Just because you're jealous of this city's new, glassy, fast-rising, tall, beatiful skyline, doesn't mean you should vote it 3 or below...it deserves NOTHING below a 6. such petty things people will do... What idiotic people..Throw this city somewhere in europe, and it would reciece a 10, whooping other city's asses...If you cut Hearst and BOA in half, it would still be praised anywhere else. with a city of APR. 500,000, its skyline kicks ass.

Charlotte

Charlotte? What is in Charlotte, other than nothing....Try a real American southern city like; Atlanta, Memphis or New Orleans a city with history, depth.

Gets a 7/10, mostly because of the low amount of high rises, but its still a decent skyline for a city of its size. But I think it looks much better with the Hearst.

been to charlotte, looks better in pics than in reality but that was like 5 years ago, theres a lot going on down closer to street level from what i've heard, lot's of residential infill etc that should make this a peculiarly urbane city for the american south

The weird thing about Charlotte is that even in the last 5 years things have changed noticeably. It's finally bumped up to a higher level of urbanism, which is making the downtown in particular a more interesting place to be. It's no New Orleans, but it's definitely making headway in terms of culture and nightlife. I don't blame anyone who visited in the past for feeling like the city lacked a heart, but I would invite them to come again and see some of the fruits of that "sterile" phase when construction was the primary downtown activity. Things are especially going to pick up once the downtown arena and its adjacent development is completed in a year or so.
