Florida Cities

City / Population / % +/-

Miami 404,048 11.5%+
Tampa 332,888 9.7%+

interesting list for Florida and it's nice to see Miami finally break through 400,000 for the first time. The city now has a estimated density of 11,544 people per sq. mile.

thanks for posting this list jim!

It always shocks me that Atlanta is so far lower than Memphis. Memphis does not nearly have the size downtown that Atlanta does.

Memphis doesn't have the downtown skyscrapers like Atlanta does, but it's downtown is much, much better. Far more people live in downtown Memphis. Atlanta has more skyscrapers downtown because its metro area is nearly five times the size of Memphis'.

You would be hard pressed to have me believe that Memphis's downtown is even close to better than Atlanta's, definately with all the revitalization going on in Atlanta. Atlanta's has better shopping, entertainment, the largest aquarium in the world (i believe), a new coke museum and has hosted the olymipics. Metro Atlanta is like 8,000 square miles and contains five million, but really there is just not many places to live in Atlanta proper. I was just saying the difference is shocking

Interesting list indeed. Any reason why Miami is rapidly growing, while neighboring Hialeah's population is dropping?

^ Lakelander not sure why Hialeah keeps losing population but it's down from a high of 229,000+ in 2000. The traffic there is one of the worst in Dade County. Miami's highrise boom maybe be the reason for it's current growth as more people prefer to be closer to the city & the beaches.

The Hialeah numbers are interesting and there are 3 things that come to mind.
1) It's an industrial/manufacturing city. It doesn't get the same press as others, but those jobs and factories are being shipped out just like everywhere else.
2) Homestead. One of the fastest growing cities. It's new, suburban and clean. Lots of things that Hialeah isn't.
3) In it's own way, it's gentrifying and losing some of the staggering density it once had. I've seen it in parts where they'll replace a home that's been illegally divided 5 or 6 times with a standard duplex.

These are just quick guesses, and it may be a combination of them all or none it all, but something to explore.

I think you're number three really hits it on the head. I'd imagine the city is getting wealthier, and generally the higher you get up the income ladder the less children you have. I'd always assumed Hialeah's incredibly high density (for the US) could be ascribed to it being a magnate for immigrants with big households, and that the decline can simply be attributed to the population moving up the economic ladder.

Living in downtown ATL for 6 years now 5 blocks from Turner Field, I'd argue there are GREAT places to live intown. Why do you think the city proper has added over 80,000 people in the past 6 years alone with only Ft. Worth outgrowing Atlanta in the top 50 cities percentage wise. Memphis is a beautiful city but Red UM is right....Atlanta offers far more IMO not to stir anyone's pot though.

The population of intown Atlanta is growing amazingly fast and for the first time since the 1970's the number of housing permits within the city of Atlanta exceeded every other county out of the 28 that make up Atlanta over the past 2 years. Hell the city alone added over 16,000 people in the past year accelerating faster than since the trend began in 2000 with no signs of a slowdown right now in this trend toward intown living.

Atlanta is growing faster than Las Vegas and Phoenix? Interesting indeed. By the way, who said that Memphis has a better downtown than Atlanta needs a talking to. How do the two even compare? Farlie Poplar is almost better than downtown Memphis...

Sigh, maybe that was a slight exaggeration, but the hard facts have the Atlanta Downtown population at over 30,000 and Memphis at under 28.000. Why even compare the two though?

The Central Atlanta Progress organization gave downtown Atlanta a population of 23,300 as of 2006, with 36,600 by 2008, which seems like a bit much unless this includes adding additional areas to the 'downtown'.

Central Atlanta Progress Residential Report

I have no idea what the boundaries are, though, but they must be pretty expansive. Are there any official boundaries for 'downtown' Atlanta, BTW? I've always wondered.

Downtown Memphis currently has 28,000 in its downtown, which only includes 6.5 square miles.

Well, I saw that as well, but that report was from early 2006 and if you look more throughly at the internet, you will see reports with higher stated numbers for downtown with some as higher than 28,000 for the 2000 count.

The 23,000/36,600 numbers were for the only 4 square mile definition of downtown though I am not sure which four square miles that refers to. In either case, it was a smaller area than the area defined in the Memphis report.

Atlanta's Downtown Homepage

One reason for the jump, though, may be the new Georgia State housing. In any case, Memphis only has one central distract that I know of and Atlanta's definition of 'downtown' is constrained by Midtown to the north. Regardless, it seems that there is no one who can say that Memphis has many more people living downtown than Atlanta and there is no one who can say that he daytime population of downtown Memphis is anywhere near that of downtown Atlanta.

Yep, before I logged back on here today I did some research and found that the area they are talking about is actually only about 4 square miles. The area they refer to is bound by North Avenue on the north, Boulevard to the east, the I-20 to the south, and Northside Drive to the west, and includes the core and a few core-city neighborhoods.

BTW, the boundaries for the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID), just the core, are 1.2 square miles, but they don't have any population data for that.
