1) Frankfurt

3) Moscow
4) Paris
5) Warsaw/Rotterdam


London has skyscrapers planned for both the City and Canary Wharf clusters, as well as the development of a 3rd cluster in Vauxhaul alongside the recently topped out 180m St Georges Wharf. There are also a couple of other singular 'scrapers set apart from any other cluster. The Shard should also be internally fitted out.

It should be another interesting year for for the London skyline.

Milan imo couldn't get the top5!

It is only reserved to the "big 4" london,paris,Moscow & frankfurt
No n°5 because they don't have the level

rotterdam has a skyline which beats perhaps cities like manchester & kiev but no way to enter the finalist list

Learn to respect tastes

Anyways, i posted my skyline top 10 on the previous page, but I was thinking...what about ranking the single clusters/districts, instead of judging the whole skyline. Would things change?
Well, a bit.

Here's my skyscrapers clusters top 5:

1) Frankfurt

1. Frankfurt
2. Rotterdam
3. Warsaw
4. London
5. Moscow

* * *
I love the neat minimalism and elegance of the first two of my picks. Nordic precision + awesome density of development; what's there to add? )
Warsaw downtown appeals due to its blend of old and new, Soviet-era highrises and the new ones. I know that probably W. should not be placed ahead of London but I can't help wishful-thinking that the future is always brighter and certainly the Polish capital has a lot of potential to live up to my expectations while London is a well-shaped cluster already.
London is just massive yet quite spread out, they need some centerpiece to bring it all together. Shard's OK, gimme another.
Moscow. I don't quite get the point of squeezing such bulk into one small lot while there are hundreds of acres of commieblocks and low-rises around. Though Moscow city looks tremendously good it also looks kinda peculiar in this aspect.
When we talk about rating cityscapes it takes the whole urban environment to consider, not just the number and height of skyscrapers and supertalls. All in all Moscow is good.

I respect all the tastes, but why would Rotterdam be better than Paris and London? Rotterdam is definitely less dense and more spread out than London. Not to mention the fact that the tallest building in R. is only 165m tall, or the sheer amount of skyscrapers in London, which is probably 3 times the one of Rotterdam. It's the first time that someone puts Rotterdam on his top3, usually the distinction between first tier and second tier skylines is accepted here. That's why I'm asking!
