what do u think of Metro Manila though not as good as Kuala Lumpur and Singapore..
could this city be in the top 10 in the future it does not have iconic supertall buildings.. but it has massive quantity and very dense
Massive Metro Manila, Philippines

Toronto seems like it will grow in a pretty impressive way.

My top cities which skylines will change dramatically are:

1.Mumbai
2.Chongqing
3.Shanghai (never stop growing)
4.Bangkok
5.Toronto (not often u c a city in the western world grow so fast in skyscraper infrastructure).

I also think that Dubai will decline in their building infrastructure, there is too much supply but too little demand.

Just add New York to that list. The city is experiencing the most dramatic change since the 30's. Supertalls are popping up all over the place. Shanghai is behind New York in that matter.
The new WTC alone is a major step in transforming the skyline. And with 432 PA (426m roof!, under construction), Hudson Yards North Tower (408m roof!, approved) and 225W57th (500m roof!, site preparation) the skyline will look insane.

1st cycle: 2012/13: 1WTC, 4WTC, One57
2nd cycle: 2015/16: 3WTC, 432 PA, Tower Verre
3rd cycle: 2017/18: 2WTC, Hudson Yards North, Girasole, One Hudson, 80 South, 225W57thStr
4th cycle: 2019/20: 15 Penn, Manhattan West, Sherwood

And who knows how many (residential) towers are going to be proposed in the next years...

I don't think that NYC and HK can be beaten in the next 10 years. HK has it spectacular natural setting whilst NYC has its grandeur architecture.

So Tokyo gets both #4 and #8?

What if you combine them? Perhaps they can reach #3 then?

It's good to see Miami getting a bit of respect, but I think we'll have too much still under construction in 2015. I think 2020 is going to be more our year to shine.

With a skyline like this, Chicago could never even build anything else and still be #4 in my book. I just don't care for the architecture in a lot of these other cities.

Unless you're counting the antenna on First Canadian Place.

One supertalll does not a great skyline make, and no antennae don't count.

The Shard has a huuuge crown. Top floor: 244m.
Source: CTBUH

First Canadian Place is 298m tall, to the roof. I guess the last occupied floor is somewhere between 280m and 290m.

So yeah, it's pretty clear to me as to which one is taller.

coz an "iconic supertall" is the only thing Manila needs to get noticed. IMO
