Those maintor mid/high rises in in Frankfurt look good, I like the timeless designs of a lot of frankfurter towers, towers with a classy mature designs like Frankfurt have the advantage of never going out of fashion, they age well. I also like the taunstrom tower but if it was 30m taller it would be perfect

If the hermitage towers and tour Pharr get built, I think paris could claim the title of best European skyline, and because its a big city, like London, Moscow and Istanbul, there will always be a steady supply of new towers

Of course there will also be a continuous skyscraper construction in a continental European financial centre like frankfurt, so it's anyone's to claim, but Istanbul is building so much, and I'm not sure about future Moscow plans, but if they keep going like they have been in the last few years, it will be difficult to match as London is the only EU city building on a large scale right now

You know how in shanghai they have their shiny supertalls, but their density comes from all their 30 storey tower blocks.
In Moscow there is also the beaughtifull shiny supertalls and skyscrapers, but Moscow also has massive tower block density, same as shanghai, but the Moscow ones are a few storeys shorter, if moscow tower blocks were a few storeys taller, it would have the tower density almost the same as shanghai. When I look at pictures of tower block density in shanghai and Moscow, it looks the same except that the Shanghai tower blocks are a few stories taller than moscows

I do find Istanbul difficult to wrap my head around. How many main clusters are there and which ones are on the European side and which on the Asian?

He/She is entitled to his/her opinion. While I do not think London is at #9, I certainly like the skylines of Warsaw and Benidorm more than London's.

London's hard to rank as it doesn't have a contiguous skyline.
