not the city i live in, but recently visited. Chongqing is completely dominated by United International Mansion, currently the tallest in the skyline and additionally located on a bit of an elevation making it look taller than it actually is when viewing the skyline as a whole

You started this thread, but no Photo of the Delftse Poort (1991 Completed) is visible.

for hong kong it only works for one side though, looking from an angle where you also can see 2IFC i do not think ICC is the boss, it looks pretty balanced although it is quite a bit taller.

On a bit smaller scale, but still a "Boss of the Skyline": The Finance Tower in Brussels

Although it's not that particularly high, it's dominance is more granted by its location and by its looks. It's got that dominant look, although it's a rather stubby tower. Two more (rather large) pics (from Benonie) to show it's quite dominant throughout the city.


Although you could consider the Law Courts/Palais de Justice dominant as well, but meh.

And not mentioned yet: LA with the US Bank Tower ; Milan is quite dominated by Porta Nuova Garibaldi at the moment ; Kingkey 100 for Shenzhen (thanks to the design)

Metro Manila has several bosses.

Makati CBD and overall (PBCom Tower)

Ortigas (it's a debate between St. Francis Tower and BSA Tower)





Manila Bay (1322 Golden Empire Tower)



Filinvest City (Insular Life Tower)



Fort Bonifacio (Pacific Plaza Towers)

All those buildings are amazing, the only one that looks tacky is that spacecraft in North Korea. That looks horrible.

I'm surprised Abby wasn't posted here so far, there is nothing even remotely close to it in Mecca.
