This is so great! If all of London's clusters will fully merge one day, its skyline will probably be impressive enough to be compared to even New York or Hong Kong!! Damn, the awesomeness will be almost overboiling then imo!

Everybody know it's Paris... We can still discuss of other CBD but to be honest in surface or cluster it is far beyond the other. It's buildings are not mention on wikipedia because it is out of the city...

I've been in Frankfurt too during my studies and very often to London but who can seriously doubt that La Defense is not the most impressive CBD in Europe

We already have a city, where all clusters have fully merged.
This is Benidorm

We still need to wait and see because sometimes the biggest doesn't mean the best. Still need to keep an eye on what kinda architecture, design, quality and iconic landmarks London will generate in the future. These are vital and main factors in order to create the beauty of skyline. And i bet London will never be able to compete with cities like New York or Hong Kong when it comes to quantity and height of skyscrapers. Because, London has many restrictions regarding with height of buildings (due to very busy airspace and proximity to LHR and City airports), historical sites, protected view etc.

Paris is nice, but i think too many buildings have about the same size which makes the skyline a bit boring

At the moment it's plans are to expand existing clusters like Canary Wharf and The City, then there will be more towers in Southwark, another cluster will be created around The Shard.

I hardly give attention to quantity or mass amount but i do care about architecture, beauty, icon, design, innovation, technology and cracking quality. I mean London is the only city in Europe that has multiple/many clusters within one city and it proves how big London is. I don't get why Frankfurt fans hate this aspect. Any city can afford and able to build mass amout of towers all over the city, just look at some poor cities in Asia, their skylines are bigger and denser than our biggest guys in Europe. But, they barely produce world class architecture, iconic and quality ones though. So, to be frank i don't want European cities to copy some of those Asian skylines in order to get big skyline (but made with crappy quality). That's why i think Moscow cluster is such a great example and it suits my taste as well. In a few years "The City" cluster will become an amazing one as well. La Defense is fantastic, i have seen all those towers in person and most of them looked fabulous and quality ones: Merci for that.

For eg, in this diagram below, i only like the first 3 towers (from left) and then 5th and 6th towers. The rest are nothing special to me and i hardly give attention to those kind of towers.



In this one, i only like 3 of them out of 10 towers. They are The Gherkin, Broadgate and 20 Fencurch. ( i like Razor tower too although it's short - cos it's built with eco-friendly technology and awesome design )



From this angle, Canary Wharf "alone" can compete with other European major skylines/clusters.

From this angle, The City "alone" looks quite impressive by European standard.
