Thridly the fat shape of the towers let them look shorter than they actually are. (Tour finances, galaxy towers, Belcacom Towers). And all towers have a flat top

Brussels needs more towers like Dexia, Madou Plaza and Up-Side, but 50meters taller. It has the potential to climb very fast and very high in the rankings by adding only two or three projects, because the basics are there. Just look how Vienna changes with the right tower on the right place, sharing Brussels main problems before
I agree with you.
The "historical" financial district is something horrible. A collection of glass boxes of equal height.
Towers in the business district around Gare du Nord are generally too fat to make an impression.

Still, the number of high- and low-rises in Brussels is impressive. There are many other towers which are not located close to the main cluster. Tour du Midi of course (150m), but also the tower close to Place de la Chapelle, the former Hilton Hotel Tower, and the Blue Tower in Avenue Louise.

Also, the landscape plays a role. The business district is located in a relatively low area, which doesn't help its towers look prominent.
In fact, the highest point of Brussels is the roof of the Blue Tower in Ixelles, but the building is only 90m tall.

To me, the most interesting perspective on the skyline are the ones from the city center. Dexia Tower looks cool from De Brouckere.

Brussels is an "administrative village"
I don't see why big companies will build offices there when you know that the euopean public organisations has too many workforce.
Then no real serious future for this cheap bad quality skyline.
Even napoli is superior.
