I'm not saying, that Africa has no good skylines. But you can it not compare with the best European cities (Moscow, Istanbul, London, Frankfurt, Paris and Warsaw).

A 25 floor tower can be also only 90 m height.

Moscow and Istanbul have both over 150 towers with 100m and dozens under construction .

Paris 75 + 2 U/C
London 45 + 20 U/C
Frankfurt 30 +2 U/C
