Ji-Ja-Jot's pics are great, thanks!
But to be honest, all three skylines are pretty impressive and considering that Paris and London will have super talls, which Frankfurt probably won't have by then...I'd say Paris and London win. (Though Paris imho will look kinda hideous with those twin towers).

And Liverpool lad, I reported your one post...

Yes, indeed great visualisations, a big thank you from me too!

I'm the last guy who doesn't wish some cities super talls, but none of the proposed / under construction supertalls hit my taste. I don't like the Shard, neither the Tours Hermitage :/

Frankfurt will have its supertall one day, I just hope T350 or whatever it will be, will just be mindblowing ...

London has a high quality skyline, All the buildings are architecturally great, unlike NYC which is sprawling urban concrete boxes

New York is literally concrete ugly boxes sprawling across the city, The only nice building is the chrysler, all the rest are awful.

Before all you 'know it all's start having a go, you should note that I have actually lived in NYC, as half my family are NYers. So i know more about NYC than you germans ever will.

Having lived in NYC, I can safely say: London is much better than NYC, and is the greatest city in the world.

I have been many times in both cities, also at times you werent even born! comparing london to NYC is nuts, specially skylinewise. you could see on the tv around a month ago how "great" london is, lol. london is ridiculously expensive and its nightlife is a joke when you compare it to Berlin f.e..

Since you are comparing future skylines I did a fast one myself of the Levent cluster in Istanbul.

Istanbul - Levent Cluster

I only added projects that are prep or U/C so Levent should have this skyline before the end of 2014.

Present Skyline


Future Skyline

I think Istanbul is one of the best in Europe now. Also Moscow!
