The commie blocks in these pictures, can French developers build some new high rises there, or is it forbidden, it's the perfect place to build some modern luxury apartments there, in london riverside views are highly desired by rich foreigners, with lots of new towers going up on the London riverbanks, if the demand is there in paris, it would look great if paris did the same and built some luxury residential towers, it would give paris a new cluster

Unfortunately, not twice as big.
We expect
- 3 skyscrapers will be added in 2 years.
- one OKO will become super tall next year, Vostok tower will become super tall too.
- Plus the Federation Tower spire will make the cluster complete.
The rest u/c towers are t/o or almost t/o

You are probably confusing skyline with the super tall cluster

Wow, that black and white shot of canary wharf is awesome, imagine how great it will look in three years when all the new towers are built, by then London will have several big clusters

obviously london is heading to the right path and it is ahead of the game in terms of huge investment, architecture, design, quality, creativity, and popularity.

btw please do not quote all the pics from the entire post. thanks

Does Moscow have many new towers planned for the next few years, or is the current u/c group the last

High/midrises (50-100m) have good impact on skylines when the towers are slim, they look taller, but fat high/midrises (50-100m) don't look as tall.
I don't know the numbers for Moscow or Istanbul, but for Frankfurt, London and paris it's like this.

NUMBER OF MID/HIGHRISES (50-100m) U/C

Frankfurt = 2 u/c
Paris = 1 u/c
London = 73 u/c

The data would suggest that London will solidify its spot in 3rd behind Istanbul and Moscow. London seems to be pulling away from Paris and Frankfurt in most categories.
