Well I am perhaps not objective, but I like skylines that are not just made up of officeblocks. Although the Rotterdam Skyline looks bad from some perspectives it does grow denser, it is in the centre of the town and it has besides office towers also highrises with mixed use i.e. appartments.

I have added the Eiffel Tower on Ericparis's render of La Défense in 2018, to give an idea of dimensions. One Eiffel Tower stands between the Tours Hermitage and the Tour First. The other Eiffel Tower stands next to Tour Phare. They are both at real scale.

Î like the Warszawa skyline.
Especially the mix of old architecture and the modern skyscrapers.

I absolutely love Moscow. If it keeps developing the way it has, it will become not only one of my favourite skylines in Europe, but one of my favourites world wide. The Seven Sisters and other large old buildings like them form a fabulous canvas from which modern Moscow can rise. Moscow's going to be very special.

Have you ever seen a pic of Madrid?
Are you kidding? 142m in 1957 the tallest. In Warsaw, already in 1955 it was built the Palace of Culture and Science.. 231m high...

200 m is the new height restriction? He won't be mayor for long.

This restriction only for a "Russian tower"
He has forbidden to build everything, except parkings

We have a mayor who's damaging the advances made by our city (Toronto), so I know how you feel. Your mayor won't be around forever; neither will ours.
