To be honest i ain't got a proper clue about it because as far as i have realised a lot of cities across Europe are doing such fantastic jobs especially Moscow, Istanbul, and London respectively. La Defense cluster contains many (quality) tall buildings but they are not that dense and tall like in the pictures, plus Paris doesn't have highrises all over the city like you see in London. Never been to Frankfurt and don't know anything about it, but it's cluster looks great from some angles.

Mercury tower is fabulous, and calling Evolution and 16IBC crap is nonsense.

It it just a matter of taste really, rating would be vary based on your personal preference. If you check out 20 Best European Skylines in Euro Forum you would be shocked and will see why Warsaw is voted the highest lol

@ultEmate may i kindly request you please don't post any render of future skyline, skyscraper pictures in this thread they look fantastic but they have not been fully constructed so ...

That's why I made them as small as possible. But speaking of renders, you should have seen the renders of CoC and Naberejnaya tower, they were horrid, and the real things are like 100 times more beautiful.

And why it's a bad thing? Moscow has a ton of modern looking scrapers.

Now here's what I don't like about each city
London:All the towers are so short the only one that stands out is the ''the gerkin"
and I don't like it but the shard will change everything.
Paris: Same thing with London (very short) plus all the buildings are very boxy.
...

Frankfurt: There is only one building that is supertall the rest just stand way low below it.
Warsaw:Not much interesting shape to any of the proposed or built
Rotterdam: Just a little here and there
Madrid:The built buildings are all spread out quite far and similar shape they look quite lonely.
Moscow: All the buildings are so dark blue it's kind of depressing

But so far good job each city

There is no supertall in Frankfurt, the only European city that has supertall is Moscow, and London is also working on it. But, no city in EU really beats Moscow which contains majority of Europe's tallest towers and a lot of 300M+ towers are being built
