Silly to compare London with those cities, but as Europe goes London will easily have the most impressive skyline, there are currently 69 skyscrapers over 100m proposed, approved or under construction.

69!! Way more than any other city in Europe.

London will also have multiple clusters (the City, Canary Wharf, South Bank, Elephant and Castle, Nine Elms, Stratford, Crrotdon), something that is more akin to the cities mentioned above. So while the same old single cluster photos will be posted here time and time again, we have multi-cluster panoramics of London to look to forward to.

You can count those planned in Paris and Frankfurt on one hand!

Agree. London, as the many other european cities, has many historic buildings and for some time was necessary protect the constructions of historical relevance. But the fact is that for some time now the city is brimming with a beautiful skyline with modern skyscrapers and may surprise with more projects that combine architectural beauty with greatness heigh.

The European side alone in Istanbul got about double that amount of Com & U/C & Prep buildings over 100m. I don't know Moscow very well but according to this list it got 71 buildings over 100m...and it's probably not updated.

The last picture of Vienna shows its main limit: Donau City is a rather dull Business District, located far from the core of the city. DC Tower looks great but it's more like a lonely tower and the main highlight rather than the icing of the cake.

You misunderstood what I meant, 69 approved, proposed or under construction, not including completed buildings.

These are new skyscrapers due to rise!

I think Istanbul and then Moscow are the only cities close to rivalling London in terms of construction.

Oh ok, but how many are there if you exclude proposed?

Yeah, London, Istanbul and Moscow have changed a lot during the last decade and they are gonna change even more in the close future

Not including proposed buildings, there are 51 buildings over 100m that are approved or under construction! That leaves 18 currently in planning that are known anyway.

How does this compare to other European cities?

Guys, let's not get in there please. We don't wanna see another useless and endless debate about who is superior and who is not.

I am tired of repeating myself but "be proud to be European and enjoy all the beautiful sites Europe has to offer, all the way from Dublin to Istanbul, Lisbon to Moscow."

Seriously all of our cities are unique to themselves and they all have different tasteful flavors and I love it.

Very impressive!

So far we have...

100m buildings proposed, approved or under construction:

Istanbul - 83
London - 69

Anyone like to contribute:

Moscow
Frankfurt
Paris

Please no silly empire comments, this is a genuine conversation on a discussion thread about the best European skyline. The number of skyscrapers being built will clearly help determine this and so this is right on topic!

I'm not sure that number and the tall could help us to determine which is the best European skyline.

In my opinion, a smart and beautifull skyline as San Francisco skyline's, without so many skyscrapers and, without giga-skyscraper, is far better than super-skyline as Dubai or Shanghai.

For me the Dubai and Shanghai skyline's are brutale's expression of autoritarian power.

At the contrary, smart skylines as San Francisco, London, Paris, Francfort or Istabul are symboles of freedom and creativity.

Well, for my skyline, in Paris, I hope other constructions will be built, but for nothing in the world I want have some skyline such Dubai or other...

PS: We have to keep in mind that under skyline they are peoples who lives and work

I have sympathy with your position but this is a skyscraper forum and so cities will be judged by the number and quality of their skyscrapers here. Thoughts? Discuss...

Assessing the number of skyscrapers being built in European cities will really give a very good impression of what the skylines will look like over the next 10 years.

I think this is a very good point of discussion and this thread is supposed to be a discussion thread about European skylines after all!

I am very interested to compare how many skyscrapers are currently proposed or under construction in each European City, it's very much on topic!

Seeing the same photos over and over again is very monotonous, I would like to discuss calmly and methodically without any of the tantrums!

Would anybody like to provide figures for buildings over 100m currently proposed or under construction in other European cities?

We currently have:

Istanbul - 83
London - 69

I'm also interested to know if there are other cities that have multiple clusters forming, I know a secondary cluster is being designed in Moscow, would anybody care to discuss their thoughts about multiple clusters. In London there at least 4 or 5 good sized clusters forming.

Hey folks, check the KlausDiggy's list. I think it's very updated! Just count the buildings of Paris, Frankfurt and Moscow!
