Not bad, although not as good as Cincinnati's skyline though. 6/10.

4/10

Seems to be just a small row of midrises and a bridge. Not much else you can say about it really.

5/10. I'm not keen on how the 'talls' relate to the street level.

Kind of poor for such a large place, although I know that Covington is Cincinnati's premier suburb. Also, I know that Covington, despite a lack of suburbs, features a large and incredible selection of perfectly-preserved Victorian architecture. That gives it high marks in my book. I think I'll go with a 7. I usually give a 7 to skylines and cities that please me but don't thrill me.

Pretty nice density, but nothing interesting. I give it a 5.5/10.

Covington's skyline may not be much, but the city population is actually only about 50,000. Still, the city has absolutely wonderful architecture and a great waterfront; I have driven the streets of this city many times and the urban feel is very strong for a city its size.

Like it. Is more interesting that most of the cities of USA whith same population number.

I like the bridges (magnificients) and the river, not as much the talls.

7/10

well the population to skyscraper ratio (if there is such a thing) isn't too bad, but not an impressive skyline: 4.5/10

In all honestly, Covington doesn't have much of a skyline at the moment but that will probably be changing very soon. A new Daniel Lebiskind tower called 'The Ascent' was just approved for downtown. Needless to say, public opinion has been mixed as to the aesthetics of this building...



A second tower has been proposed that will become the city's tallest if completed. Developers have yet to release renderings of that project.

This skyline has the potential to change a lot in the coming years.

6/10 Ten years ago I would have given it a 3, so it has definitely improved a lot. This "city" is really a suburb of Cincinnati that lies in Kentucky. It has some very nice areas and some very old and worn out areas. It's nice to see that the riverfront is getting more development.
