Also true for Moscow/Warsaw. Both cities now have modern glass clusters and they sure are popular, especially as Europe in general has less skyscrapers and on a smaller scale compared to rest of the world, but the tourists are definitely more drawn to Seven Sisters and/or Palace of Culture. Glass boxes will keep rising for years to come everywhere, the "old style" will likely never comeback. The very few cites in the world that such towers are lucky

Rochester, MN should have a very solid claim for the best U.S. skyline for a metro under 250k. It currently has 4 towers in the 20-25 story range proposed or planned, as well as a 10 story vertical expansion (30 total) and 13-story tower.
Any other news on smaller cities with increased development in the next 10 years?

Bartlesville, OK has a pretty good skyline for only having 37k people in a metro area of 52,000. It even includes Frank Lloyd Wright's only skyscraper at 19 stories:





It'll be one of the best skylines in Northern Oklahoma in 2025

In the world, the most impressive has to be Benidorm, Spain imo.

I've always been impressed by Bartlesville as well (easily tops the <100k range). It is always a big plus when a skyline features an architectural jewel like the Price Tower. My favorite for Rochester is the plummer building (tallest in Minnesota upon completion).

It looks like the petroleum companies did a lot to build density in downtown Bartlesville. Any developments that you are aware of for the future?

Benidorm definitely beats every city of a similar size in both density and overall height, but lacks architectural variety. And of course it benefits from hundreds of thousands of tourists in the summer. According to emporis, it has 6 buildings planned or under construction of ~300 ft or higher. I would expect it to retain the worldwide title for largest skyline of a small city until 2025 and the foreseeable future.

This model was on display at Metro Hall in June. It shows all proposed, under construction, and existing buildings in Toronto's downtown core.

CBRE Launches Its Report On Thu Thiem New Urban Area



SAIGON, September 21, 2015 – In September 2015, CBRE Vietnam published a report on the Thu Thiem New Urban Area, the planned new financial and commercial centre for Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). In addition to highlighting, the significant potential positive impact of planned developments in Thu Thiem, the report also touched on factors that have prevented the Thu Thiem project from achieving satisfactory progress in the past few years.

Located across the Saigon River from District 1, the 657 hectare area known as Thu Thiem is ideally located to become the Pudong of Ho Chi Minh City. Transportation to and from the Thu Thiem peninsula from District 1, District 9, Thu Duc District and the rest of District 2 is very simple. Recognizing this important feature of Thu Thiem, the local government introduced a development plan for the area in 1997.

Currently, 99% of land has been cleared and Thu Thiem can immediately offer 382 hectares of residential space for 26,618 apartments and another 334 hectares of commercial space. Upon completion, Thu Thiem will have a resident population of 150,000 with a daily working population of 220,000.

Commenting on the potential of Thu Thiem, Marc Townsend, Managing Director of CBRE Vietnam, said: “The development of Thu Thiem offers an opportunity to connect the eastern bank of the river with the rest of the city. Possessing a large land bank, this is an ideal location for the development of a new financial, commercial and residential centre for HCMC. The need for a new central business district (CBD) is becoming even more urgent as the existing CBD is running short of land for development.

At the moment Thu Thiem remains largely a greenfield site and until recently has had little connection with the rest of the city. To date only a tunnel and a bridge have been completed to connect Thu Thiem to the rest of the city. Four other bridges and a metro link are still either under-construction or under planning.
