Here is the 2014 list

Which skylines do you guys think, are consistently rising in the ranks and which are going down?

Look at Chengdu and Shenyang, China!! Jumping fast in the top 20.. Did we overlook these 2?

Practically every Chinese city will continue to climb up the chart. Southeast Asian skylines are still growing rapidly but will find it hard to move much higher because there's so much competition in the top 20. Singapore (11th) might even fall a spot or 2 over the next few years. Mumbai (30th) is another obvious candidate to rocket up that list.

Practically every skyline in Europe and America will see their ranking fall. A few will manage to maintain their position: New York (2nd), Toronto (16th), Miami (26th), Istanbul (32nd), Mexico City (45th), Calgary (56th), and London (59th). Chicago (7th) is a high profile skyline in a precarious position. It's already dropped a number of spots and has many fast growing skylines right behind it. It will likely drop out of the top 10 in 5-6 years.

it will be hard to catch up with chinese cities with the construction boom there. i personally dont think SG can overtake Chongqing especially now. hows Manila doing? the numbers are sooo close. 10, 11, 12 differences are in tens. LOL

Manila fared the best of all the southeast Asian skylines over the last year and could crack the top 10 next year. They climbed a few spots as did Jakarta. The old ranking listed for the previous year is wrong. Jakarta moved up 2 spots but I can't remember what Manila rose other than their points total jumped a lot.

Shenyang had the largest points total rise of any city.

Lower Manhattan will gain 2 WTC, 3 WTC, and 125 Greenwich. Jersey City will gain 99 Hudson Street and a host of other new skyscrapers, though most not in this view.

i remembered Jakarta was 16. i thought it jumped to 14 too but the list said 15 so edited my post. Shenyang is another Chinese city to watch out for.

with the current under constructions, I am 80% sure, it could overtake Singapore next year.
There is also a shot in surpassing Chongging.. but it all depends on how fast Chongging is still growing.

a couple or more years ago.. the gap between Singapore and Manila was big.. Manila is catching up, finally.
I even remember KL being well ahead of Manila a few years ago..

It will be hard to overtake Bangkok though.. it will take more than a few years...

Does catching up will mean they become best skyline in the world?

What About HK? They have a huge gap with new york but many people vote NY as number 1

(a little back reading will answer your question...)

we were SPECIFICALLY talking about the rankings here http://tudl0867.home.xs4all.nl/skylines.html
we were talking about a list that is "quantitative".. otherwise, everyone will constantly be arguing their own opinion.

Jakarta moved passed both Toronto and Panama City from the previous year so moved from 17th to 15th spot. Toronto passed Panama City so stayed in 16th spot. Panama City fell from 15th to 17th. We'll have to wait till the following list comes out but I'm curious as to whether Shenyang can keep up its frenetic pace of construction.
