I don't know the numbers for Moscow or Istanbul, but for Frankfurt, London and paris it's like this.

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

Frankfurt = 2 u/c
Paris = 1 u/c
London = 73 u/c
This is false, Frankfurt currently has 4 midrises under construction next to the two Skyscrapers Taunusturm and ECB. (50-100m)
Paris builds certainly also more midrises.
Can you show me the 73 Midrises which are under construction in London?


Maintor Porta = 70m

Wikipedia

St Martin Tower = 70m

Yes, Istanbul has got many towers, but don't forget that some of them are at the asian skyline or other parts of the city

We finally have found a forumer with the perfect point of view. The Porta Nuova cluster and City Life will appear as a massive group of skyscrapers.

Clearly not the best european skyline, but definitely an interesting one: MILAN

From this vantage point (credit: user Orcokhan) you can see both City Life and Porta Nuova clusters, the two major construction areas of Milan. A brand new skyline: 5 years ago it was all flat.

I am pleased that Milan so well developed. Maybe one day the city will stand on a par with Paris and Frankfurt.

Yes there is 73 mid/high rises 50m-100m u/c. I will list them all for you tomorrow, but I think it is 75 now as another two just began construction, and paris does only have one 50m-100m tower u/c, it's called melia 4, in London towers like melia 4 begin construction every week
