My list and justifications:

1. Hong Kong (Skyscrapers with a mountain backdrop. How can you beat this?)
2. Shanghai (Epic sea of skyscrapers, plus the three supertalls next to each other)
3. New York (Incredible density, great heritage architecture)
4. Chicago (Well layered skyline, good density and just visually appealing)
5. Guangzhou (Very well planned CBD, several supertalls making great height)
6. Shenzhen (Completion of Pingan tower with other supertalls makes a great skyline)
7. London (Nice cluster of buildings, historical lowrises blend well in the skyline)
8. Chongqing (Skyline looks very dense with the occasional tall building)
9. Dubai (Epic cluster of skyscrapers around the main road, with the Burj Khalifa)
10. Gold Coast (I just love the stretch of skyscrapers, with the Q1 spire in the middle)

Other special mentions with nice skylines but not in top 10:
Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne, Toronto, Los Angeles, Frankfurt, Singapore, Manila, Jakarta, Beijing, Bangkok, Nanjing and Tokyo.

I take it you don't know how long it takes to build a skyscraper then, if you like cranes then it would be a good skyline, but who thinks cranes are pretty?

4.tokyo
5.dubai
6.bangkok
7.seoul
8.mumbai(highest growth rate exceptional! falls marginally behind seoul)
9.toronto(low growth)
10.kuala lampur

p.s my list is based on overall skyline of city not just on supertalls
post your lists
Mumbai? Wow that's crazy, they had a lot of buildings but not impressive ...Honestly there are more qualified City for best skyline like Los Angeles, Dubai etc....It's OK to say your opinion but, you have to know the difference between reality and hallucination, we talk about year 2015 not 2050

@Gudavalli
Yeah, Shenzhen is probably the only city with the potential to beat Dubai in terms of supertalls.
That pdf is old
New York has 6 completed or topped-out supertalls as of today:
  1. Bank of America Tower (2008)
  2. Chrysler Building (1930)
  3. Empire State Building (1931)
  4. New York Times Building (2007)
  5. One57 (2013)
  6. One World Trade Center (2013)

That puts New York on par with Chicago and Hong Kong. Note that neither Chicago nor Hong Kong have supertalls in the pipeline and Chicago's last supertall was 2009 and Hong Kong's was in 2010. In the next 10 years New York should nearly triple the number of supertalls with
  1. 15 Penn Plaza
  2. 225 West 57th Street
  3. 34th and 10th Street
  4. 432 Park Avenue (U/C)
  5. Girasole
  6. Hudson Place North Tower
  7. One Manhattan West
  8. Three World Trade Center (U/C-On Hold)
  9. Two World Trade Center (On Hold)
  10. Verre Tower

From another thread:

Here's a skyline look from 2004 and one for the near future (much of the future render would qualify for 2015 or 2016 except for the one Mirvish/Gehry tower (of 3 proposed) and one Oxford/Foster tower (of 4 proposed) I included which, if approved would be more like 2020 or so). The Holt Renfrew tower and a couple of others would likely be circa 2017.

Nonetheless, most of what you see is finished, topped off, uc/ (or soon to be).

Many, many projects missing simply because they would be lost in the clutter and many others are blocked from this POV.

Hopefully, despite all my caveats, you'll get a good idea of change from 2004 to 2015.


Click on the LARGE RENDER links for a much better look.

Enjoy.

What cluster are you referring to? If you put all of London's skyscrapers together in one spot, you'd perhaps get a 'top 20' cluster. London's just in the infancy of skyscraper construction. They're off to a good start, but they'll likely need another 20-30 years to make any top 10 list.

Agreed. While London's skyline is beautiful, it is too small to really get close.

As for toronto's "slow" growth, it has 40 200+ m buildings built-UC-Proposed right now, of which only 11 are currently complete and 6 were complete before 2009. The cities current second tallest building is slated to become the 10th tallest if every thing goes to plan.
