What I don't like with Emporis is they split Manila into several smaller satellite cities.. and data is outdated..

Apart from all the missing outdated data due to uneven coverage biased towards western nations (really only 1,000 buildings in Shanghai?), Emporis' ranking really shows the limitations of just ranking by height data. No one in their right mind would put Moscow and Sao Paulo in the top 10.

Allegedly to Emporis this doesn't make it into top 10.

Emporis
Emporis counts anything 11 floors and higher which isn't a good benchmark imo. It explains the high rating of Singapore, Moscow, and Sao Paulo in that ranking.

Yes, because as per the criteria, The Manila with adjacent cities such as Taguig, Quezon City, Makati, Pasay is already considered a province(Metro Manila). So that's says it. They only count per city.

In europe, when it comes to tower construction, London, istanbul and Moscow are in a league of their own. There are more towers under construction in london than every other city, in every other country, in the whole of the eu COMBINED. That is the scale of difference between London and the rest of the eu's cities. Istanbul is building even more than london and moscow is third, building a bit less than london.
When it comes to the world no european city will be top ten skyline for at least a few decades if ever, North America and Asia have soo many mega skylines also growing very fast

I say Baltimore, MD. Not sure about tentative skyscrapers planned to be built by year 2025, but it is making major headway towards epic proportions.

Baltimore has great history, but lacks substantial height to be notable among the bigger players in the USA, let alone the world.

Emporis
No offense, but Emporis, CTBUH databases are highly unreliable, incomplete and outdated when it comes to Asian cities.

Emporis
Emporis numbers for Asian cities are ridiculous. Moscow has more than 8 times more buildings than Shanghai?! Seriously? Shenzhen a population of 3.5million?! What data are they using? Special Economic Zone Population at the 2000 census?

Emporis hasn't updated its database in like 10 years. Why do people still use them?

Looks like they took their design cues from a wedding cake. It's tall but....

Still 9 years to go, so anything can happen but as it stands now...my Top 20:

1. Shanghai
2. NYC
3. Shenzhen
4. Hong Kong
5. Guangzhou

Either way, if HK doesn't fire up again, the top 3 spots will be a tough contest between the first 3.

6. Dubai
7. Kuala Lumpur
8. Chicago
9. Chongqing
10. Mumbai - provided India amends its outdated land acquisition procedures, environmental regulations and FSI.

11. Toronto
12. Bangkok
13. Abu Dhabi
14. Manila
15. Jakarta

16. Nanjing
17. Singapore
18. Tianjin
19. Wuhan
20. Seoul

Others with huge potential and worthy of consideration: Macau, Panama City, Istanbul, Mexico City, Melbourne, Qatar, Moscow
