We have less compared to what cities? NYC and Chicago? Sure.
When you look at just the other cities with over one million in population:
Boston has 13 in the 400500 ft range.
Houston has 21.
LA has 12.
Phoenix has 2.
San Fran has 32.
San Antonio has 3.
San Diego has 13.
Dallas has 9.
The mean is 13. The median is 13. We have 19. So we actually have more buildings in that range than other major cities. We are only surpassed by Chicago, NYC, Houston, and San Franciscoand Houston's are spread out over a huge area with tons of surface parking in between.
