The only thing is that for every tower Frankfurt builds London builds 3.

Agreed, but unless people stop compering cities like somebody Sid Vicious did and by the way, you liked his post...so I guess you might like offtopics as well.

i was quite sure he meant "frankfurt on the european sykline throne", which you can arguably claim. not that frankfurt is a world city altogether.

Yes, I perfectly understood that statement and everybody have rights to express their opinions and claims but they also should be ready to hear the counter opinions and claims as well. My claim was that how come the city which is arguably on the "throne" can have less skyscrapers then some other city (not even talking about London here, lists were prepared on previous pages here to prove it) and even building much less skyscrapers than some other cities, again not even talking about London here, put themselves on the "throne".

Again, you can disagree with my statement and say that judging the skyline is just a matter of someone's personal taste and not the number of skyscrapers it has and I would probably agree with this statement as well.

i strongly disagree, yes. a sykline is an intellectual construct. its not the sum of its meters, but the sum of many "soft" factors like location, composition, interplay...
if it was a simple game of measuring, something like sao paulo would be worlds no1. sykline. yet nobody talks about sao paulos skyline as no1, because it lacks "soft" factors of evaluation.

very nice. taunustower seems to be the best placed addition to FFMs skyline for ages. Could be a bit higher at that location, but tsill fine.
