Honestly after Dubai, I just threw whatever city I could think of first. The cities I think in contention are in my top 6. Maybe San Fran should be 7 and not London.

Los Angeles isn't going to fade away in the skyscraper game. By 2025 I doubt it will only have 2 supertalls, and the downtown skyline as it is now will have been greatly expanded. I would definitely place it in the world's top 30. Maybe even in the USA's top 5. (NYC - Chicago - Miami - San Francisco - ?)

Agreed that LA is making great strides. Personally, I rank Seattle, Minneapolis and Philadelphia ahead of it right now (in terms of looks anyway, if not scale), but between the Wilshire Grand and the southward development, I think it will leapfrog them soon. The South Park area is blowing up and from some directions, the DTLA skyline will appear almost twice as wide -- and that's before the new wave of towers south of the 10 freeway that'll expand things any further.

But as with the other West Coast US cities, it will always have trouble contending with the big boys because of the cost-prohibitiveness of building supertalls in earthquake country. LA, SF and Seattle all had ~1200-footers on the table and all of them got chopped (certainly some of that had to do with city politics, especially in SF, but those extra couple hundred feet are way more expensive here than they would be in comparable cities in other parts of the world.)

The best thing for LA's skyline is the recent push for densification, particularly along the current and future Metro lines. If the disparate hubs of highrises start growing together -- Century City + Westwood/Brentwood; Hollywood + Koreatown + Miracle Mile -- it's going to make a huge cumulative impact, even if the skyline never winds up being particularly tall.

I don't have a list, but I know that for me NYC will be #1 in 2025 and 2035, and so on.... No matter how many towers are built in other cities, or how tall they build them, no other skyline will ever have the mix and diversity that NYC does. They'll have more and more glass boxes.

If you're only interested in the sheer number of towers, I would have to say Shanghai will be tops, followed perhaps by Shenzhen or Guangzhou.

NYC isn't the only highrise city in the world having a great mix of architectural styles from different eras , Shanghai has a really interesting and varied building stock and is preserving it very well imo , and that's why it's one of the biggest contenders , it has a very remarkable cityscape compared to other booming chinese cities , it's reviving it's identity withtin it's incredible economical and demoghraphical growth ...

Chicago has as much skyscraper heritage as New York does. The windy city can easily be ranked head to head with the big apple in terms of quality and variety of architectural styles.
