I like Charlottes skyline alot. Whats amazing is there was no skyline 15 years ago!! So the one guy who said..imagine the skyline 20 years from now is so right! There are alot of scrapers getting ready to be built. Charlotte could never be a NYC or Chicago, everybody knows that. Could it beat out Atlanta one day? Maybe not beat it out but skyscraper wise It will come close I think. For such a young downtown center I give Charlotte a 9.5/10. I look foward to watching her grow in the future!

It would be cool for someone to post the skyline pictures from the Mtns, and inside the stadium.

the skyline is very nice, and i hope that it get's bigger and better later on in the future. i like the tallest building, because it evens out the rest of the skyline. i see great potential in this skyline, and i hope that everything goes smoothly with the city.

8/10

That's always been one of my faves. It's amazing that someone actually captured that. I wonder if something similiar has been done recently, to get the newer towers in the picture?

Pretty neat city, I've seen it a few times from I-77 but never actually went in. Nice to see what buildings could be in Buffalo right now had all the people not moved south! 8/10

Good buildings, but not very much of a skyline. I give it a 7.5/10.

Good height and architecture, but density isn't the best 7,5/10

Thats true, there are alot of projects getting under way though, two buildings will be more than 50 stories.

7.5/10. Nice enough I guess. A few more skyscrapers and it will have a 8.5/10.

Its a beautiful skyline, and I like how BOA, Hearst and a couple of the others compliment each other perfectly. They almost look like as if they are part of one complex because they look so much alike. Only thing not going for Charlotte is Density, and that should come soon hopefully. Its not the best in America, and I wouldn't put it in the top 10 yet. But it would beat out a lot of cities in the world so i'll give it a 7.5.

Several of the city's tallest, including Hearst and BoA, were built by Bank of America. You're right about them complimenting each other, it's almost like a tailored suit for the city.

Charlotte has some impressively-high buildings for a city and metro area of relatively small size. Looks like a very nice place. 8.5/10
