2.THE PART OF THE CITY THAT SHINES














3.THE BOOMING PART OF THE CITY
(Upanga and Kijitonyama in the background0






4.THE CONCRETE JUNGLE , FULL OF MID RISES WITH A LOT OF SPACE FOR DEVELOPMENT. ie, most of them get tired down for new towers, this may extend to Tazara.(mnazi mmoja, kariakoo, ilala boma to Tazara)








5.THE RISING PART OF THE CITY(Here we have proper high rises ie PSPF, TPA,MNF, and whatever is coming up at NHC Square)






6.THE SEA BETWEEN. Great spot for spoting the huge Ships, fast ferries to and from the spice island of Zanzibar, The kigamboni ferry, and may be later great spot to view kigamboni brigde.

South Africa with (Johannesburg, Capetown and Pretoria/Durban) still has the best skylines. The building and the city structure reminds me strongly to American cities.

Followed by Nairobi with a strong growth and Dar es Salaam.

Cairo also has a beautiful skyline.

For example, I would compare Brussels with Cape Town. I would be interested how you assess your Skylines. Therefore we need examples from both continents with a comparison of the figures

Johannesburg’s CBD, the grid of streets and tightly packed skyscrapers just to the south of the Witwatersrand Ridge, is the most recognizable part of the city



For a century after the first mining camp was built, on what is now Commissioner Street,
the CBD was the core of Jo’burg’s buzzing commercial and financial life

I doubt, that some African skyline can compete with Moscow, Istanbul, London, Paris or Frankfurt.

Neither counted by the number nor by the height.

No way.
