Man, this is what I call skyline and one that actually defines the term. Each skyscraper etched on the horizon so perfectly that you can call their names even on silhouette mode, in the name of NY

Edit - but again, its got some kind of charm, you know, more like some air carried from Chicago, too less distractive, God dammit, Toronto might get back at it again though

Miami skyline with all 120 projects currently in the pipeline completed:

For a sense of scale, the green tower jutting up from the harbor will be about 1,000 ft. high.

KL is going to leave all but a handful of city skylines in the dust as far as super tall buildings go. How many 150m+ buildings will would KL have if you count all those built, approved, under construction, and proposed? The SSP database (roof heights) says 106; I imagine there are a few missing. To use a Canadian expression, 'is it in the ballpark' (roughly right)?

Here's one of Melbourne showing the uc, approved and proposals. Missing are Docklands and Fisherman's Bend which should be just to the right of the pic, and have another ~45 100m+ planned/uc.

Manchester 2025

Apologies for the size of the post, but based on current proposals announced in Manchester City Centre our resident boffin VDB has done a skyline mock up using Google Earth 3D (which has been used by a local news website ManCon http://www.manchesterconfidential.co...future-skyline)

From M602/St James's Park:






From Salford Crescent:






Cheetham Hill:






From Greengate:






From Broughton:







Riding along the Ordsall Chord - as thousands of northerners will every day - will certainly be one of Britain's most striking journeys:






From Princess Road, Moss Side:








From Hulme (I think this is my favourite):






From Moss Side again:







From Cornbrook:






Castlefield:







Priscilla QOTD's view is also featured

As you can see, if all of these proposals go ahead we are in for a massive change in Manchester. How it will rank amongst the worlds biggest skylines I'm unsure, but it will certainly be something special for a regional British city.

what commie blocks ?
they are office towers and hotels! take a look close to check the quality of the projects being built there in Bonifacio(specially!)..
i persuade you.. check at least one ongoing project here
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1278

It maybe hard for you to believe it.. but Manila is already actually building quality towers.
