Skyline isn't only supetalls and skyscrapers, but above all the cluster which plays a very important role
Only Frankfurt cluster can be compared to Paris one (la Défense).
CW cluster is compared to Warsaw and Rotterdam ... Moscow is unique!

Wow ! I was reading this thread for a long time without reacting, but I'm really fed up with all this "londoncentrism/king-of-the-universism/best-skyline-everism". I really wonder what is the definition of a "skyline" for this bbcwallander, but it's clearly a joke... If we just compare the number of buildings taller than 150m, the City currently owns : 4, Canary Wharf : 7 ! La Defense...16 ! Frankurt probably much more...
I agree that La Defense is not located in the city centre, but that's a choice, and I would be really bothered to see old buildings destroyed in order to build some awful "cheesegrater" or a huge "walkie-talkie" that looks much more like a kid's toy than a skyscraper... (I know, just a matter of taste).

Actually its because of the multiple accounts of the biggest troll ever - SO143, ppl are fed up with London here thanks to his "efforts", city itself has a nice, growing skyline, but if you follow this thread you know that one troll (SO143) ruins this thread.

Frankfurt currently has 13 Towers over 150m and 5 over 200m. 2 of them exactly 200m

Best CBDs in Europe (completed and UC buildings 150m+)

1. Moscow International Business Center = 8 compl + 8 uc
2. La Defence= 14+2 uc (without Tour Montparnassa)
3. Frankfurt= 12+1uc (without ECB)
4. Canary Wharf= 7 compl. + 3uc
5. Warsaw CBD= 5 compl + 2uc (without Warsaw Trade Tower)
6. City of London= 4 compl + 2uc (without Shard, St. George Wharf Tower)

Deutsche Bank are still twin towers, so 14 skyscrapers above 150m

Unfortunately this is true, and this thread would be a much better place without all this nonsense. It would be great if people were just able to discuss the skylines and give their own personal opinions in a friendly manner without bashing other cities at the same time.
It's a shame really - Europe has some superb skylines and we should be admiring them as things that help to make our continent great, rather than all the city-bashing and boasting that often happens... I'm from the UK and so obviously I'm proud of London's skyline, which is constantly growing and getting better, but just because it's my capital city, it doesn't mean I'm going to go into a frenzy and flood the thread with photos/comments like "London is the best, everywhere else sucks"...no, I love European cities and so I'm going to appreciate all the other fantastic skylines that Europe has to offer, they're all superb in their own ways and we should be proud of them.

Unfortunately, we do not know, the Millennium Tower is still on ice.
