They have used London proper, so the 33 boroughs. As you say all within the ring road, the M25.

After looking again it seems they get most of their data from Emporis, unfortunately data on London displayed on that site is rather outdated.

Also how often do they publish, the 'Worlds best skyline ranking' ?

Melbourne is pretty underrated.

This part of the city will look a bit like Tokyo with all the separate medium size clusters.

The Golden Horseshoe will likely end up with 1 giant cluster downtown + another 8-12 smaller ones scattered about the urban area.

They do it annually. An SSC member (who I can't recall right now) has the table for each year but can't remember where he posted it.

this visualization by Visualhouse is actually missing a lot of towers and only covers the game changers in midtown. None of the future downtown supertalls are here like the obviously absent 2 and 3 WTC

When I joined SSC I was sure that Shenzhen would at some point get the greatest skyline in the world.

I was probably blinded by all the yellow (concept) at the bottom of Z0rg's supertall list. Since then Shenzhen has been one big dissapointment waiting to happen while NYC is exploding.

My favourites today have to be Hong Kong and Chongqing for sheer scale - and their topography. I doubt that'll change by 2025.

NYC however has by far the best skyline for at "flat" city. And it seems the distance to the rest will just continue to widen.

I hope Nordstrom builds taller than WTC. That could make things go even more crazy

Yes Shenzhen is huge disappointment. A city that has buildings downscaled by aviation authorities but still managed to transform itself into an ocean of skyscrapers in a length of a childhood and has possibly the largest number of new skyscraper developments in the world today and in the near future. The only thing unsustainable about Shenzhen's boom is the hype.

Throw in the Financial district, Brooklyn, LIC, and other clusters forming around that aren't pictured; Madison Square Park, UES, East Midtown Rezoning, the northern stretch of the HY, I see this more as a competition for the spots behind #1.

Too bad that Europe does not prove more courage.

A Super-Skyline in the Western Hemisphere outside the American continent is long ago overdue.

maybe we'll see a new boom of highrises in Europe in the future but it would be just a boom by european standarts and by far not that big like in other regions on this world. Unfortunately

I think that's a little far fetched.

Dubai is already one of the most impressive size wise though so it'll stay near the top.

Dubai is impressive but those towers with horizontal structures/bridges connecting them are eye sores.
