A skyline is not just a collection of buildings. Since the difference in height of individual buildings plays an important role. So do not talk such nonsense.

I reckon you desperately need to get your cranium checked if you acknowledge the pictures below express the definition of skyline.

Let me educate you a little bit my European friend. This is what we call the "skyline" picture. Scroll >>>

But a comparison between these city's isn't really appropriate. Rotterdam has a diff. dynamic than the other mentioned city's.
Firstly as you know London, Paris and Moscow are the main (and large) capitals of large European country's. R'dam isn't the capital of the NL, large company's are mainly based in A'dam. Secondly the only city of the aforementioned city's that is smaller than Rotterdam is Frankfurt, but that is the hart of the European banking System, which made a large part of their Skyline possible. That of London in a similar sort of way, they profited heavily on the (deliberate) lack of regulation on their banking system, which attracted a lot of US and other (investment) banks in the past two decades. Rotterdam on the other hand is all about it's Port, which is essentailly not about "high buildings" in city centres but consist of vast streches of docks, chemical, oil and gas faclity's, etc.

I posted Photo 1 (the front site of this Building), just to give an good idea/impression of the new Residential Building '100 hoog'. On Photo's 2 and 3 you can see how the building stands compered to it's surrounding area.



The Rotterdam is so huge. It is a small Skyline of its own.

Excuse the little misunderstanding.
No reason to be equally offensive.

If you compare the population of the two cities, Frankfurt is greater than Rotterdam.

Frankfurt has 690.000 inhabitants in the city and in the Rhine/Main Metropolitan Region 2,2 million inhabitants.(Wikipedia | Frankfurt)

Rotterdam has 616.000 inhabitants in the city and in the Metropolitan Region 1,2 million inhabitans.(Wikipedia | Rotterdam)

To be fair I see exactly where he is coming from...

Rotterdam has an EXCEPTIONAL Skyline for a City with such population. When compared to other European Cities with similar populations, i.e. Birmingham, Manchester etc, its a true accomplishment.

Haha yeah, i also like the bit about the London banking system lol. Its true and the British know it - its what keeps London the financial centre of the world, its just now London is running out of room for companies AND people. 100,000 People are moving to London each year, and companies keep moving their HQ's to London - most recent is "Total" and that Chinese phone company "Huewei" is it? Either way, they will all be doing their financing in London which means more floors space!

So the only valid answer now is for London to build UP to accomidate such demand. And that's what London is doing.

I can understand your desire but you should not derail the "best" european skyline thread by constantly dumping tons of irrelevant pictures. Besides, even if you consider that building you quoted above can be classified as a small skyline on its own I still don't think it belongs in this thread which is not genuinely about small european skylines.

Correct, but you're talking about the urban areas, not the metropolitan areas. Those have about 5.5m and 7.5m inhabitants, respectively (if you count the the whole Randstad for Rotterdam, which includes the other major cities of Amsterdam, The Hague and Utrecht).

You're right, I ddn't check, I thought Frankfurt had a pupulation of around 500 to 550.000. Don't know were I got that from.

Yep, city's of that size and nature are probably more fitting for a comparison.

And to complete my answer lot of the Rotterdam High rises are residential (I'm guessing about 60 % ??). In comparison; those in London, Moscow, Paris and Frankfurt are mostly comercial.

You may thank PM M.Thatcher for that........and PM's like Blair for sustaining it aka looking the other way.......

(and by the way; probably to say "thank you" Blair got a nice advisory position at J.P. Morgan Chase)
