I think it'd be silly for me to try to guess. Given the huge construction boom over the last 13 years that has altered so many skylines it's impossible to tell. I do believe that cities such as NY & Hong Kong will still be two of the best by 2025 though.

Pissybits might live in Miami, but he's a Chinese from China (regularly encountered him in Chinese sub-forum), and he is legitimate to express his object view on Chongqing, but you...everyone could read a tint of condescending on Chinese cities from yr comments.

To be fair though, i would rank Queenslander skylines on 4th(Gold Coast) and 5th(Brissy) OZ-wide after my lovely Melbourne, snobbi Sydney and nouveau riche Perth. Brissy dose not have the height or the right rhythm, Gold Coast on the other hand does have the height but is way too linear (and too much condos). Melbourne could be the only aussie city managing into World's Top 10 by 2025 imo.

Anyway...just make sure you are sober and calm when you reply next time. (Getting drunk while surfing on internet is a new norm among aussies recently )

Thanks for your concern, sweet heart, but I don't drink alcohol. Secondly, if you thought what I said was intended to be condescending - I think you may be a little on the insecure side. Heaven forbid some body (not from China) would genuinely like the grit and somewhat dirty look of Chongqing! If I didn't like Chongqing I would have said so, I don't need to beat around the bush or come up with some back-handed compliment.

The rest of your post, I could give two shits about.

Gosh, and the 7 tower One Yonge proposal, 3 tower Mirvish-Gehry proposal, and multi-tower East Waterfront proposal aren't even in there.

Those two towers near the CN Tower are perfect. Exactly what I've thought Toronto has always needed. Great render.

It actually looks like three clusters put together. I'd be over joy if Vancouver has even one.

This one's a bit old now, but thought it was a very good job done by one of the local members in Toronto. You truly get a sense of what's to come.

Blue: under construction
Red: proposals
Yellow: in sales

I like how they lit up 1 WTC in that first photo although it instantly makes me think of France, not the United States.

I am sure the New York skyline in 2025 will still be more authentic and iconic than any new one.

It's simply not that easy to create iconic skylines . You need more than just buildings.
