Reno, NV

How about Reno, Nevada?







THE place for gambling in Nevada before Vegas got big. Still quite a bit of tourism, and lot's of conventions as well, so thus multiple large Hotels/Casinos.


There are also a few larger hotels away from the downtown cluster:

The Nugget


The Atlantis


And the second tallest building in the city, the Grand Sierra Resort

Some more Europe:

Eschborn, a suburb of Frankfurt.
Population: 20.000
Jobs: 28.000
They have lowers taxes than Frankfurt and draw lots of companies out of Frankfurt, their newest trophy is the German Stock Exchange which is building its "Deutsche Boerse Cube" at the moment:

BELFAST:

Central pop: 267,500 | Metro pop: 579,276

Tallest completed/UC building: Obel (85m) Windsor House (80m) City hospital (75m) Hilton (64) BT Riverside tower (62m) The Boat (60m)

Tallest proposed/Approved: Aurora (109m) Bedford Sq (104m) Vetro (100m) St Georges Gate (78m) and numerous other smaller developments.

Unfortunately we can't legally have anything here built over 109m because the city centre lies directly below a very nearby airport flightpath.

Benidorm, Sabadell or Calpe are some exemples here in Spain.
La Coruņa has a little skyline, but there are 450.000 inh. living in that city.

Small city size

I'd certainly consider 500k a small city or maybe a large sized town.

When you compare cities like these to NYC, Tokyo etc. They're definitely small, in terms of population.

Buffalo has a metro population of 1million + doesn't it though? I wouldn't call anything 1 million + a small city.

If we talk about little cities skylines... Benidorm (Spain) maybe wins
Population: 70.000
Towers with 100 metres or more: 27
40 towers with more than 85 metres
1 tower is 186 metres tall, another 158, and other is 150. They are building just now 2 that will be 200 metres tall.
