2025 is just 12 years from now, so IMO it will still be Hong Kong.

However quite a few skylines will join the top tier of skylines by then. Especially Tianjin, Mumbai and Kuala Lumpur come to mind.

Well, that list wasn't meant to be serious. But indeed, Port Said had a proposal for the next WTB.

Toronto sure has a great amount of u/c and proposed buildings, but somehow I still find it unimpressive compared to other major skylines (mainly due to the lack of signature towers I guess).
I'd sign your list but kick out Toronto and throw in Guangzhou instead (and Tokyo as well; although it doesn't have that much of a building boom currently, it is still one of the most impressive skyscraper molochs worldwide, and it will take a lot of time for the runners-up to get anywhere near it)!

Hunser, your display picture almost made me hit my computer screen. I seriously thought for a split second that there was a bug crawling on my screen.

I dare say:

NYC
Hong Kong (if there pops up some supertalls any time until then)
Shanghai
Shenzhen
Chicago (if the post office proposal gets a "run" by then)

how about the "top 6-10"?

I think cities would have a closer fight in this range..

My ranking:
1. Shenzhen
2. New York
3. Dubai (If they really build there new proposals, I am pretty sceptical at the moment)
4. Hong Kong
5. Mumbai
6. Tianjin
7. Chicago
8. Shanghai
9. Jakarta
10. London
This is based on my opinion, maybe I forgot anything and I am not sure about the first 2 places.

01. New York
02. Shanghai
03. Hong Kong
04. Shenzhen
05. Bangkok

06. Manila
07. Toronto
08. Guangzhou
09. Chongqing
10. Chicago

11. Dubai
12. Tokyo
13. Mumbai
14. Tianjin
15. Singapore

16. Nanjing
17. Kuala Lumpur
18. Seoul
19. Moscow
20. Jakarta


London and/or Istanbul could squeak into my top 20, but they'll have to start building at a faster clip than they're presently. Both are just so far back from the big skyline cities, they'll likely need 20-30 years to make up the gap if ever.

This source shows Hong Kong to be so far ahead as to be almost unbeatable. What do you think Isaidso?

Hong Kong is way ahead in terms of number of 90m buildings, but it doesn't translate to a #1 in my eyes. New York and Shanghai both look a touch better despite having far fewer. Likewise, I've tended to put Shenzhen outside my top 10 for similar reasons. A sea of cookie cutter apartment blocks is in many ways more of a negative than positive.

Shenzhen will really blossom over the next 12 years though.

You really think European cities like London will have the 2nd best skyline by 2025?

Yes. I also count smaller buildings to the skyline. Just the look of city from distance. Clusters of tacky-glass skyscrapers that don't make a city never make impression on me.
