That's Brickell CityCentre. It's one of at least 3 mega-projects planned for Miami. Another tower has been added since this rendering was created and they have bought more property extending to Brickell Avenue, so we don't know how big the project will become. This is part of what makes Miami a contender for one of the best skylines by 2025. The photo beneath the rendering I just took yesterday as well as the one you're referring to.

+1 It's criminally underrated on this website, especially in the Best Asian Skyline thread, but it is developing a dominate cluster that may well be the best in the world within 1-2 years.

The Miami skyline is becoming more massive even as we speak. We just need taller, more aesthetically-appealing buildings. In my second photo below from Saturday, you can see how nicely the Brickell CityCentre project is going to fill in the southern end of the skyline.

This is Melbourne in around 2015, let alone 2025 :
[IMG]http://i43.************/2jcsl80.jpg[/IMG]

Unfortunately, Melbourne only recently discovered that it is constrained by height restrictions stemming from aircraft flight paths, which will limit buildings to 312m.

While these rules are unlikely to be changed any time soon, if and when they are, I predict an avalanche of 300m+ proposals.

Istanbul have changed a lot in just 8 years and will change even more in the following 2-3 years. If it continues like this and gains a bit more height I think it will get much higher up in top lists by 2025. This is just the main cluster, there are 2 clusters (Sisli and Bomonti)just the the right and 1 cluster (Maslak) to the left of this picture, they are also growing...

Edited to look like it did in 2005



Original picture, how it looked a couple of months ago



How it will look like in late 2015 / early 2016 when all Prep and U/C projects are finished

I actually think Melbourne will look better than those pictures, because it has an absolute ton of smaller scale projects going on that haven't been rendered in. In fact, I'm not even sure if all the larger scale projects are shown.
It will be much denser than these pictures, and missing the eyesore Australia 108.

This is the same angle. I just zoomed out farther so that you can see the condos in the foreground.

Nice pictures of future Paris above, I really love the glass finishings of their high-rises. French architects know what the definition of aesthetics mean. Even though the shape of their towers are not so unique but, they made sure the overall glass coverings of their skyscrapers look gorgeous and superior which gave the skyline a dark, superior and quality look.
That's what Chinese cities lack. Hats off for Paris.
