Height restrictions in these cities are very tough. Any skyscraper is not allowed to build in Paris that's why a new business district where tall towers can be built was established in La Defense which is near Paris. No building can be taller than 1000 feet in the city of London due to it's proximity to London City Airport which is literally a stone's throw away from the financial heart. There are many organisations and councils in London which always try to fight to death in order to cancel or reject any proposed skyscraper project. They even said that the attractiveness and the view of a world heritage site like Tower Bridge is totally destroyed because of The Shard. However, the mayor of London Boris Johnson has been a pro business and skyscraper, therefore he tends to try his best to support any proposed project to get approved. Due to his strong political power we see some of Europe's most recognisable towers in the heart of the main financial centre of London which is filled with the historical buildings. Being said that the future of London will be solely concentrated in Canary Wharf financial district which has less restrictions compared to The City.

Honestly London doesn't deserves that position, not behind Warsaw and Rotterdam.
If you move it up of two positions, the ranking is questionable but reasonable.

Rotterdam should definately be ahead of Liverpool and Milan and maybe even ahead of Warshaw.

F.i. Milan ; apart from the new highrise cluster near the Pirelli tower, Milan doesn't really have a skyline.
