What's the name of that building under construction? It looks uncannily like 30 St Mary Axe in London.

Why would you rank dubai and Guangzhou above Toronto? Sure, they have larger skylines in terms of quantity, but the density and (especially) the diversity of the Toronto skyline easily put it ahead of those two skylines.`

I never know what to do with Dubai. Besides the things you mentioned, the architecture isn't my cup of tea either. That said, its height is astonishing and has to be given weight in a skyline ranking. That said, I could easily have put it behind Toronto.

Guangzhou's my favourite Chinese CBD aesthetically and the density is good imo. The designs make up for the lack of diversity. Toronto's new office towers are quite short couldn't be less interesting if they tried. Things are changing but for now those deficiencies drop it below Guangzhou for me.

With the current crop of Toronto buildings under construction or close to breaking ground I could see Toronto back above both by 2018. Here's my 11-20.

11. Tokyo
12. Melbourne
13. Beijing
14. Singapore
15. Panama City
16. Bangkok
17. Tianjin
18. Manila
19. Moscow
20. Jakarta

Being a livable city doesn't mean it has a top 10 best skyline ...

Yes, I think he forgot to read the thread title. I do love the Melbourne skyline though. I'd like to put it on my top 10 but it's a tad too small.

There's a good argument for putting it in there somewhere. There's not much separating the skylines in my 11-20 ranking.
