The city has a small skyline. I thought it would have been much larger. Nothing to look at.

We do have a rather uninteresting and small skyline, I must admit. Coming from New York City it was a big change for me, but Raleigh has great standards of living and this is the major selling point for the entire area. Fortunately, this will translate to some major corporate relocations and eventually a few nice towers to spice up our skyline

@yuval5: I am not good at these things, but I will give it a shot. Raleigh is pronounced as "Raly", or "Ralii", with the accent on the "a". Anyone who is good with phonetics please feel free to jump in.

Downtown Raleigh is about 1000 acres big/small. Of course, the CBD is not that large; it is more like 16-20 blocks.

Just to provide the latest numbers, Raleigh is about 353,000 people strong - strictly within city limits, with growth of about 1000 new residents each month. The current population within downtown is 4000, but the city leaders estimate that this may jump to 10000 in the next 4 years. For those who love playing with numbers, the population within 1-1.5 miles from downtown is about 15000, I believe.

There's little to see there now. So us Raleighers are mostly interested with the future. The future looks a lot better. Meeker's Council is undoing a lot of the damage Coble and Fetzer caused by doing nothing for downtown. We're getting a lot of residential developments there, which will be great for the nightlife.

As for the skyline, that's a tricky task. Until the RTP fills to capacity, downtown Raleigh will have to fight it for big company headquarters. Durham is having largely the same problem.

Our best interests would be served by building the Triangle Transit Authority's Regional Rail. This would not be cheap or easy, but I think with the prospects of a 2-million resident metropolitan area, this will become inevitable.

I can't rate Raleigh until the next wave of stuff gets built, because its level of success will largely determine the path the city will take.
