Yes, I think so. Both Phase 1 (Eastern Yards) and Phase 2 (Western Yards)

Just to steer the conversation back to actual skylines...

Per the Real Deal today, lower Manhattan's 80 South Street is now set to be 1436ft/437m (which is taller to the roof than One World Trade), in addition to the couple new residential supertalls going up nearby.

Between the graphic JuanPaolo posted above of Midtown, today's news concerning Lower Manhattan, and the booms going on in Jersey City, Long Island City and Downtown Brooklyn, I cannot see any world in which NYC isn't solidly in first place come 2025.

No Chinese city can really compete with NYC in terms of 2025. No city in the world can actually. By 2040 who know what can happen though...

Christ, the attempted belittlement of London here is a little perplexing, if not somewhat sad. Let's discuss skylines.

In terms of density and presence, it'll be very interesting to see how the E14/SE10 corner of the London progresses from now until 2025. It has the potential to be visually impressive (the density combined with the bend in the river and intersecting waterways), as well as quite unique in its scope for the continent.

The E14 (Canary Wharf-Isle of Dogs) region of London now has 45 towers over 100m planned or under construction. Answering an earlier question, the different colours on the model below demarcate each individual project. For example, the golden-brown group of towers to the right is the €2.6bn Wood Wharf project:




The SE10 (Greenwich Peninsula) region, across the river from E14, has 19 towers over 100m planned or under construction. Greenwich Peninsula is a single, €10.8bn project currently construction:

No idea. Given the dramatic resurgence of the city over the past two decades, coupled with the amount of derelict industrial land in the urban core, towers are a natural progression for London. Anything else would be an under-utilisation of land at places like Canary Wharf, Nine Elms or Greenwich Peninsula, especially given the pace of population growth.

There's room for London to have towers in some quarters, and retain its lowrise character in others.

One of Manila's newest district under construction..
Entertainment city -- (Location for all Casinos) Not tall though... just bright and flashy because of all the casinos in the area
Although it will be a shorter skyline.. what i like about this district is, it gives Manila a new Character.. a different image perhaps.






Alphaland Bay project proposal right beside the casinos(although these are old plans.. most likely changed already.. heard last time builders quarrel on the project)

As a side-note to the previous conversation, nowadays young adventurous people from my country seem to move to Berlin instead of London.

Years go by but London never fails to ignite controversy on this thread!

Anyway...one of my favorite underdogs...could well be in the Top 10 by 2025

Bangkok

London may not have a massive skyline, but what it does build are super high quality buildings. I think 30 st mary axe is a masterpiece, and the shard is absolutely gorgeous!

Not to add to the controversy but I would not bet my chips on London for top skylines in 2025. There are far too many more cities with current skylines that are far superior to London's. Not to mention that these cities, as well as other underdogs, are booming in terms of skyscraper construction.

Not hard to see why, when you have people claiming that London's prominence is an invention of the 'London media'

Bangkok is an interesting one. Will like to see how the skylinr densifies in the coming years.

First; can we please refrain from insulting one another.

Secondly; this thread pertains to skylines and skylines only, open to all cities showcasing a future skyline and any relevant information.

Anyway too many interpretations of what is considered the 'Best' skyline...so I guess the debate about London is far from over!

Yeah Bangkok is coming up nicely...it will be there with high economic development in the SEA region and booming tourism in Thailand
