Chicago definitly has more 200+ projects in the pipeline than HK - which I really can't understand given HK's role a a leading global financial center and it's unique geography. I called HK the biggest skyline loser because it's really just a few larger projects and HK arguably has been the world's best skyline for some time - a position it will clearly lose until 2025 (and perhaps already lost - would be a matter of discussion).

Seems skyscraper construction in Hong Kong has stopped, and there aren't any proposed projects either. Such a shame

Chicago has a ton of smaller highrises in the pipeline that arent reported on this site. The skyline is growing significantly and the city is definitely still in the skyscraper race. Toronto will not pass it in the foreseeable future.

When I see all these models of cities in 10 years, I don't want to think about how they will look like in 50 years

For me, Dubai could be among the 3 best skylines in the world. Right now, there are 18 towers that are 300-399m tall, 2 towers that are 400-499m tall and one megall.
By 2025 there will be 35 supertalls including 3 megatalls and two ~500m buildings. Plus, all the new projects look great and have nothing to do with these pre-crisis designs anymore.

The future Chicago pic is cool but keep in mind it doesn't include BIG's new project for the new spire site. Maybe I'm dreaming but I'm hoping for 400 meters there

Chi town is a city that built a ~450 meter building back in the 1970's, it's overdue for another, or taller

Are there any plans or is there a good chance that the skyscraperconstruction at canary wharf will extend futher in the south? If they would build skyscrapers all along the peninsula then that could get a skyline compareable with Singapur, in my opinion!

i wish it didn't take London so long to build things :/ in 2 decades it will really look like a village unless they decide to sort out the housing crises by building upwards

I'm not the type of person to be bais. I know London is lagging behined most other leading global cities in terms of its skyline and has done for years.

However with all the new developments already under construction and and in the pipeline I think London will possibly break into the top 10 by 2025.

The pictures of Canary Wharf and Greenwich above this show only one area of development. There are also tons of high rises going up in Vauxhall, Croydon, the south bank, Stratford and of course the historic City of London itself.

It will be interesting to see how London compares in 9 years time.

top 30 probably.. and that is being lucky..

even the current fastest growing skylines are having a hard time breaking in the top 10...
I am saying this without bias and being realistic.

I would argue that top 30 is at the other side of the spectrum being the most pessimistic. Maybe top ten is to optimistic. However I think top 20 would be possible to achieve with little trouble.

I'm not saying that this list is absolute.. but it kinda tells the number of projects going on.
Not perfect, but it puts perspective in general...

http://tudl0867.home.xs4all.nl/skylines.html

Instead of climbing.. actually London fell just 1 point in the ranking..



9 years is just too short to catch up with the current...
Aesthetics will give London its strongest advantage.. but many skylines are also improving theirs..

I do still love London though

I see. At the moment according to the table you posted London currently has 72 buildings over 90m.

The current number of buildings over 90m that are under construction, approved, or proposed is in excess of 140, a 200% increase, one of the fastest growing cities I have seen.

Assuming the new buildings have an average score of the existing ones that gives London a score of about 8,142, which brings it comfortably into 21st position.

However a large number of the buildings planned or under construction right now are in fact taller than most that has come before in London. This means the average score will in fact be considerably higher over the new 140 buildings arriving in the city which will bump London's score up even more which will likely bring it into the top 20.

Now take into account all the other cities are growing their skylines as well so in reality London will not get into the top 20 but will almost certainly hold its place comfortably in the top 30.

There are tons of cities which will have a better skyline than London by 2025.
Here are only ten cities that will kick London out of the Top 10:

New York
Dubai
Shanghai
Hong Kong
Shenzhen
Kuala Lumpur
Toronto
Guangzhou
Mumbai
Melbourne

London has a good skyline though. IMO, it's just not enough to compete with the other megacities

I love where London's skyline is going. Maybe it will look like it does in the new Star Trek franchise someday

Since that comment I have re-evaluated my thoughts and yes you are right.

London is currently ranked as 60 at the moment in The World's Best Skylines by Egbert Gramsbergen and Paul Kazmierczak.

I argued just earlier in the thread that by 2025 it looks inevitable that London will break into the top 30.

London is currently the leading global city on earth and shows no sign of slowing. On top of that London also attracts more foreign investment than any other city in the world. I expect its skyline to grow exponentially in coming years. It is not out of the question that it may break into the top 20 by 2025 and keep climbing.
