Comparing the density of London and Hamburg is absolutely absurd and ludicrous.

London is probably the most booming city in Europe in terms of construction and development.

In a few years, you will see "skyline" clusters in Croydon, Olympic Village, Canary Wharf, The City, Southwark and western parts of the city as well.

You can't really compare Frankfurt to London skylines and say oh London skyline sucks, in reality London doesn't even have proper cluster because it's skyline is so big and spread out across the city.

One thing that people should realise is that London mainly concentrates on quality, iconic design and architecture of buildings, thanks to some of the world's best London architects like Norman Foster group.

Bye for now i am tired of this old story and best wishes to Frankfurt's towers in One on One Tournament.

One on One comparsion is an argument for "Best European Skyscraper" Thread, but here it is some kind of minor matter. No 1970 Frankfurt-Box got a vote from me in the one on one competition, but in a skyline poll i would share my vote to FFM and London with light tendencies to FFM. In 2-3 Years things will probably change.
Density-comparsion between Hamburg in London was clearly a joke to people who say, London city was dence and try to proof it with tele-zoomed pictures.

You don't need to get agressive and act huffy when people do not share your oppinion. You will not reach anything by that, and you will be more angry next time.

You are misunderstanding now, the reason why i did mention that 1vs1 contest is because i wanted to express my previous (above) lines about quality, iconic towers and architecture. London will always beat and defeat Frankfurt, Warsaw, or whatever when it comes to icon and recognizable landmarks and towers. On the other hand, London will never get a very dense cluster in the middle of the city because it simply doesn't have any vacancy/space to build these modern towers among preserved old buildings. So what develops do is that they randomly build many towers in various parts of the city (as far as there is space) and one tower to another tower will be very far apart obvious example is CW to City they are 4 miles away each other. Frankfurt has completely different cityscape, nature and environment and it's just irrelevant to compare to cities like Paris and London. This is the original plan for future London skyline and skyscraper constructions have just started, really just about to kick off. There are still many proposed buildings, approved buildings and much more to come. The Shard will be placed/set up as the centre of skyline and constructions will be expended across The City, Canary Wharf and Croydon year by year and finally London will end up with a very very big and enormous skyline. (which i am not a fan of)

London is sooo "massive" and the "most booming" city, it has the "best architecture" and "best architects", with the "most recognizable" and "most iconic" towers, overall it's the "best in terms of construction and development", "it will always beat and defeat" all the other cities...blargh, blagh...

SO143, London and you should get a room.

You are such a troll! You, my friend, are the only one throwing around with superlatives, not us! No reason to mock Frankfurt now...

Yeah, his love and support for London are terrible. But don't worry. In 2015 there will be a lot of outstanding skylines in Europe and it will become very very difficult to say which one will be the best.
Of course I'm looking foward to Frankfurt's skyline (also with hope for T350 or maybe even T365). Here a picture of middle 2012:

Since a person like me have contributed so much to SSC, besides i have never started any flame wars and i always come up with reasons, facts, process, explanation and points about why i think this is better than that or vice versa and i always provide sources and evidence to back up my words. So, i think that constantly calling me a troll with no reasons is just literally bashing and insulting a fellow member and this sort of profanity towards other members should not be tolerated cos it's against SSC rules. Anyway, i am outta this skyline discussion and i hope you enjoy your stay. Have fun

I remember SO143 was standing for paris, rotterdam and especially moscow. it doesnt make him/her trolling in favour of london. And in his/her posts all of us could see different cities and countries. I would not say those sets of photos were prejudiced. Even if he/she says london or moscow are among the best, it is SO143's point of view.
