Ok, but, I think that Frankfurt has probably the best downtown skyline of all European cities with its many skyscrapers.

Doesnt work. We all know why Frankfurt has no, and probably wont have any "Supertall" in future. There are several good reasons for it. ;-)

its no decision. its just that skyscrapers taller than 200m make no economical sense in germany (i.e. frankfurt). also german companies and german investors are very modest when it comes to status symbols. its quite the german mindest - do whats reasonable, dont flaunt.

now i would say Frankfurt is the most iconographic, London and Paris the most charming and promising for the future, Moscow the most impressive and least european.

They where 100-180 towers 30 to 100m tall.
