...simple - because Istanbul has a better skyline than Paris, London or Frankfurt - and they are jealous. Although - I do think Istanbul's skyline is too scattered to be 'best'.

Let's not get into this type of discussion again.

of course this is just my own preference
This isn't criteria for being part of a skyline.

Hmm I don't know. Everyone has different preferences. I personally think that comparing Istanbul with Rotterdam is like comparing New York with Bratislava. However, we should respect everyone's opinion and not call them jealous just because they prefer something that we don't. Plus I too think that London's skyline is better than Istanbul's. Paris has a great potential to surpass Istanbul as well but it lacks height for now. Once La Defense gets a few supertalls, it will be majestic

Milano, Italy Current situation in Porta Nuova Business District and CityLife District

* There will be other two new skyscrapers (designed by Daniel Libeskind and Zaha Hadid) near the one under construction (designed by Arata Isozaki)
* Old skyscrapers will have a new cladding soon
* RAI TV Tower (maybe) will be demolished, because italian public tv is thinking a new headquarter

Some old render...

and in Porta Nuova, another mid-tower, will be built. Other projects will follow soon.
Milan is in search of a skyline with skyscrapers and towers that have a good design and green sustainability.
