8. Miami (assuming supertalls are built)

10. up for grabs; Seattle, San Francisco, Singapore, Chinese cities
I think you mean at least one megatall in the works for Chicago.

last I heard the Post Office redevelopment was a no go and the Spire was scrapped for good. The only supertall which I know of that will definitely go ahead is Wanda's Tower, which at 1100' is another tally to Chicago's 6. Even in 2025, that will be a healthy amount of supertalls for any skyline.

The tallest Wolf Point Tower could potentially be a supertall as well as whatever Related has planned for the Spire site. Those will almost definitely go ahead.

opinions. And I certainly don't think there are any Africa or Latin American cities with skylines which can match those I mentioned. Australian cities like Melbourne, Brisbane or Sydney will compete with them. Maybe La Defense will be better and we'll see how the rest of *Asia develops. Perhaps Jakarta and some other Chinese cities can be thrown into the mix.

Yes, you're entitled to your opinion.

Btw. Luanda, Santiago, Bogota are some possible contenders.

Melbourne and Sydney are booming, but still nothing compared to asian cities.

I wouldn't put any Latin or African cities ahead of those two (Maaybe Panama City)

In Europe and Australia there are rivals but only Moscow would really pass them it by a lot.

With London being at #59, this source would seem to indicate that London has a lot of ground to make up.

Mexico City has 4 possible supertalls that might start construction this year and its 5 +200m U/C and 18 +150m U/C (not counting the proposals)

ASEAN cities are most competitive next to Chinese cities. IMO

Melbourne and Sydney have already 31 and 30 buildings over 150 metres and many more proposed UC skyscrapers, specially for Melbourne, like 15 over 150 meters more in the pipeline. San Francisco only has 21 buildings. Seattle 14. the difference is considerable. But Melb and Syd are laughable compared to asian cities and won't make the top 20 in 2025. Moscow won't either. SF and Seattle don't have a chance.

the number of tall buildings doesn't make a skyline better than another; though it does help. Of course if that were the case, Dubai would be number one on everyone's list.

if the number and density is important then it's the same situation, MELB and SYD are booming compared to SF and SEAT, yet nothing impressive by nowadays world standards. If it's about composition and skyline itself both SEA and SF are very beautiful, but is that the parameter you're taking into account to measure the best skyline in 2025?

Dubai isn't number one because it doesn't have as many tall highrise buildings as New York or Hong Kong. There are only houses and skyscrapers in Dubai, no filler midrise/highrise buildings because of the small city population. Thus no skyline density

Well Shenzhen has lots of highrise buildings, mainly apartment buildings, which is why in my opinion, it looks hideous.
