The city is very lively and organic. They build what they need. They don't build to show off. They don't have " I am the best f the rest " attitude and it makes London even sexier in my opinion.

I always hesitate between those two. You are pretty right about London, the high quality glass they use while building their towers makes everything look so natural, so functional and so futuristic from one side, but from another side Moscow has plenty of beauties in the International Business Canter, lots of different designs, they all have different colour of the glass, but in the same time they all fit one next to each other. Even if it's a pretty difficult decision I would still vote for Moscow, I guess I love Evolution and Federation too much.
And I always put Frankfurt on the third place, because I like the silhouette that his towers are creating on the skyline, I always say that Frankfurt is a great example of how does one skyline need to look. Moscow needs some megatall that will left behind all those supertalls and in that way it will give you the felling of how massive those towers really are.

If you say anything against it, they will act like they don't care about your opinion because it is a fact that they are the best of the best. They will play "cool and ignorant" but they are furious inside actually. It is a result of the French education system. I have a lot of French friends and I love them so much. I could take a bullet for them but all of them have the same attitude about "French". I wonder how Voltaire could come out of such nation.
What a joke. I quote my own last post here :

Paris doesn't have the best skyline. Paris is just....Paris.

Stop your bashing now. The "we are the best of the world" attitude is more a common thing you can hear in GB or USA. Let the French out of these ridiculous considerations.
Chapter closed.

Moscow (Unmatchable height, design, current u/c and approved skyscrapers)
London (Quality, architecture, height, current u/c and mega boom in Western world)
Frankfurt (Reputation, layout, completed and well balanced cluster and height)
Paris (Density, potential to join supertall big boys club, clean looking highrises)
Istanbul (Mega boom, quantity, gigantic skyline and tons of approved buildings to shoot up)
