Throwback Tuesday and skyline shot from the mid 1970s.  As signage is being talked about elsewhere on UP look at the signs in this postcard from my vault.  There is a big NCNB, big ACC (American Commercial Credit) and big Jefferson First Union signage on the buildings.

With the exception of probably Austin, has any other city transformed it's skyline  in the last 30 years like Charlotte?  Maybe Miami?

In the southeast and south Charlotte is definitely in the top 3 cities with a changed skyline when you start counting buildings.  Austin has had a lot high rise hotels and residential and some office but Charlotte is more office towers.

I wasn't necessarily talking about just numbers of buildings built, but just the look in general. 5 large buildings in Charlotte changes the skyline. In NYC, you wouldn't really notice. Only the newer stuff of the past 5 years in NYC is really having an impact. Looking at that list and looking at then v now, I'd say Miami & Austin are both leaps and bounds more changed than Charlotte, but I'd put Charlotte at 3rd.

You would be correct. Per capita, Miami, Austin, and Charlotte have outpaced the rest. Though, kudos to Mobile for adding a 700+ footer lol.

I actually don't think Nashville has changed as much as people would have thought not knowing the skyline.  To be honest somewhat of an underperforming skyline.

^This development looks so much better than Stonewall Station.  Amazing how the brown and grey coloring helps break up the structure.  Take note Crescent!

Stormy skies. After almost four weeks of dry weather, I guess we deserve it.

The colors are amazing on this one. Gives me higher hopes for the brick on Honeywell as well.
