This has been posted before but I thought I'd post an updated shot for 2017:

Richmond, VA
Population: ~204,000 in 2010 census but estimated to be about 223,000 now.

Not a lot of height but good density for the size.

Mobile, AL
Around 200k residents as of 2010. Very small skyline but with a pretty good skyline centerpiece.

I think we should stick with cities with populations less than 500,000.

It's a much bigger urban area (including 37k people over the border in France). Overall the metro area is probably somewhere around 800k, I'm not sure exactly which figure to choose from the available ones.
