I know where Charlotte's Skyline rates in the US. There are about 10 cities ahead of it.
And if you think I'm weird (lol) then why did you just put Charlotte at a 7.5? I thought it only got a 4.5 from you. Oh well. At least its better.

The skyline is OK, but other factors of the city turn you away pretty quickly. The roads in Charlotte need much improvement as far as smoothness goes. Also, there are many roads that change names more than 6 times throughout the city.

Come on people, it's not a bad skyline for a city around of ut's size.
And if the roads in Charlotte have anything to do with a skyline, then I'm mistaken.

It's a nice skyline for a city of it's size but there's really only two buildings in it that I find interesting and does have to many gaps. And It's tallest is one of my favorites and I also really love it's second tallest. So it reaches a 5.5/10 for me.

charlotte's skyline

i enjoy the city skyline everytime i approach the city, there is always something new each visit. It's an emerging city and is growing at an exciting pace and for me that is the kind of place i want to be. charlotte is one of the cleanest cities that i have ever been to and i think its very underated.

Charlotte looks fantastic! I've heard of the city but not seen any pictures of it. I was very positively impressed!

7/10. A very interesting skyline. It is glassy and elegant. I like the two tall post-modern buildings a lot, particularly the one that grows slimmers as it approaches the ground. Also, the height is impressive. But I think that there aren't enough buildings yet and there are some gaps that need to be filled in. This skyline nevertheless has serious potential to grow and get better.

I love Charlotte's skyline. It's growing, rising, and filling in quite nicely. Charlotte has established itself as a capital of high-quality modern architecture, proving that modern buildings need not be boring boxes. I especially like how some buildings have incorporated Art Deco cues and influences into their ultramodern designs.
