Yay for Melbourne. I'm really pulling for it and think it has a great shot at becoming one of the world's great skylines. I have it just outside my top 10 but might have to re-consider this time next year.

It's barely changed from this time last year but I'll do one any way:

01. New York
02. Shanghai
03. Hong Kong
04. Chicago
05. Guangzhou

06. Dubai
07. Toronto
08. Kuala Lumpur
09. Tokyo
10. Shenzhen

I never know quite where to put Dubai, Tokyo, and Shenzhen but all 3 deserve to be in my top 10 just based on scale/size. Guangzhou is my favourite Chinese skyline from an aesthetic pov.

Many SSC fans are posting very old and not the best images of Mumbai ....i am not posting these images to pitch for best skyline but to show you that it has potential to make a spot in top 10/15 by 2025/20 as many supertall construction is under way


These two images are 2 years old but still look good


after compilation of U/C Supertall's rendering image

I know, now is already almost about a month we leave 2015... here is my list as of now...based on the scale,height and BEAUTIFULNESS(some giants really lacking on this segment)

1) NEW YORK Perfection!
2) Shanghai -about time Pudong will cut off Manhattan
3) HongKong -still perfect, but its spark is fading away
4) Chicago -same fate like HK
5) Dubai - u cant compete directly with earth's only space capital by any points, archi or height!
6) Guangzhou -if there is a megatall sits beside CTF, it could cut Shanghai.
7) Toronto -getting so DENSER by the time, just the heigth is quite disappointing
8) Kuala Lumpur - its self created beutiful focal point is appreciated as it was not blessed with any beautiful natural setting other cities on this list have
9) Shenzhen -the GIANT with no standout focal point
10) Tokyo - The former Shenzhen's title holder, anytime will be off from the list if no effort to create any beautiful focal point
10) Singapore - its beautiful CBD natural and manmade settings get her to share the same spot with Tokyo.She will stay on the the list at least until 2018

Um... there are several supertalls and 250+ m buildings on the pipeline in Chicago.. I'm sure HK will bounce back at some point too.

If you mean just for 2015 then maybe, but the 360+ meter Wanda Vista starts construction this year and Wolf Point and the Spire site aren't too far off.
