If you take the DLR train that goes through between low/highrise buildings in CW, you will feel like you are in a canadian or american city because of all the signs written in English and the tower names are also like one canada square, 8 canada square, 25 canada square, canada water, 25 bank street, 40 bank street, 10 upper bank street, pan peninsula etc also that 1CS has the same architecture as the three world financial center tower (designed by the same architect) in new york. another advantage of canary wharf is that it is actually surrounded by water and you can hardly see that kind of skyline in the european continent. i hope that it's size will be doubled by 2020 as it's developers initially planned. anyway, london should go forward with it's construction because other cities like moscow and istanbul are doing very well as well.

"Warsaw" another rising star with a huge potential to enter the ring.

"La defense" one of the greatest and mightiest skylines in Europe although it has only one skyscraper atm.

This is a skyline thread on a skyscraper site. If this were a museum/gallery thread on an arts site you'd have a point.

London will need all it's proposals to become a major force internationally in terms of skylines I agree, but in Europe 25% would still likely see it go into a league of it's own in the continent.

Yes. It's called highlighting the site of the potential goodsyards towers. It wasn't a skyline picture.

Taken from above 38000 ft which shows London is not a planned city and in fact it is very unpredictable when it comes to variety in architecture.
of course, london aint a planned city at all, like almost every european city.
still, it appears to have a surprisingly reasonable structure for its size, with a well defined downtown and a clear distinction between business and residential areas.
i fear that future developements will delute its present accentuation.

Shoreditch has lots of planned developments. Broadgate tower started the trend.

Next major one to rise will be The Stage (40 floors)



Multiple mid-rises though. Think



Then you have the continental low-rise

Are those towers in Moscow on hold? They seem to be at the same stage of construction as they were many months ago.

Federation Tower is on hold right now, but the other towers are fine

evolution of Milan's skyline

...from user Orcokhan's vantage point. To the right, the Porta Nuova cluster, to the centre-left, City Life, with Dritto Tower u/c in the last picture.

Yeahh I figured it out a long time ago in London's project $ construction thread.

edit:

His other nicks were F-22, and REL as well, so far it's his 5th account we know about.

Very good point! London and New York are sister cities - similar in so many ways.
