Warsaw has some cool towers and now with warsaw spire it is even more catching up!

Moscow is the clear leader in terms of height and spacy designs.

Paris has an insane density but needs supertalls to be the no. 1 i guess

London is cool. If it wasn't too wide spread it would look even more impressive. Let's wait for the pinnacle and hertsmere!

Frankfurt has a great variety and a few 200+ but still no supertall.

hard choice...

Stratford City I think could rival Rotterdam in terms of mass and scale of the buildings over the next decade. It's quite staggering how many proposals are in happening in and about the area.

as for me i prefer the whole package, a nice cluster but a dirty city with a bad infrastructure and decaying buildings around it isn't for me.

it isn't so hard at all if you're a tad more selective with an eye for quality.

Fabolous shot of Frankfurt. The shape of the skyine and how it is layered out is just the best in Europe. London is wordclass when it comes to design and the classy 'techy look, but the shape is not that good, and the skylines are widly spreaded from eachother. Besided that i think The city outclasses Canary wharf x10.
Frankfurt is way more consistent in that way.
La defence is large and dense, but it is missing a real centerpoint, its just a wall of blend buildings with nothing really exiting going on.
Of course some buildings look good to very good, but its just missing something as a whole.
Moscow has built a couple of supertalls on a little plot, with some of the buildings being very to extremely futuristic, and is jawbreaking in heigt and numbers, but i also find it as a whole to be a little bit too outlandish, its over the top, almost comical in a way.
Rotterdam, Milan, Vienna, Warsaw, Istanbul are all mention-able skylines, but not with the big boys yet. Rotterdam is somewhat underrated i think, warsaw too, but they still have a long way to go (where Rotterdam is lacking some height, warsaw lacks in numbers and designwise.

Frankfurt got it all, the designs are not always stunning, but the execution of each tower is done with so much guality and also the heights are not bad at all.
Has a nice silhouette en an almost serene vibe, its just eyepleasing. Got that nice north-american medium-sized town skyline kind of thing going on, wich i happen to like a lot.
