Hey, my european friends, I can't understand why the Best European Skyline thread is most popular and active through all the threads in the Urban Hall of Fame whereas we have not the best and most attractive skylines in the world?

Yeah, I also don't really get this. Maybe because we Europeans are more "hungry" for skylines, since they are a relatively new phenomenon here?

Damn, SO! WTF is wrong with you?
I don't know how you think about this, but I guess different since you're at home in Toronto and only temporarily study in London. Personally however, I get an erection when I even only accidentally think of London. I guess now I don't have to explain to you what happened after reading that London is much better at everything than anything else combined (and that completely unprepared).. my collegues at the office look at me in a very strange way since then..

I underestimate our Polish friends already not, but Warsaw has failed in only half as many skyscrapers of Frankfurt's still far. Even if the city in the years to build 5 more skyscrapers. (None of which actually exceeds the 200 m mark.) Frankfurt is also developing further even if it's not currently looks.

He's right. Germany is still the most economically strongest country in the EU, and that should make even in the banking metropolis of Frankfurt with a noticeable Supertall.

That's because European skylines are much more varied, interesting, older and generally more architecturally diverse. Compare this to North American skylines for example which are all relatively similar with similar styles.

so, i guess it may probably have a chance to become the 2nd supertall and also 2nd tallest building in the EU after the shard.
