I wouldn't have posted photos if it wasn't there in the supertall U/C forum. They're building the whole business district in phases. I don't know much about the details, if you're interested you could check the thread out.

A lot of what's on that thread shouldn't even be in the supertall U/C forum. Anyway, for the sake of discussion, where on this list do you think Tianjin will be in 2025? It seems to be the next big Chinese skyline after those in the top 10 already.

Tianjin will certainly be in the top 10 by 2025, ahead of Chonqging. However, Tianjin doesn't have a single CBD, and it's CBD has far away from each other. So far that one CBD can't be seen from the tallest building of the other CBD. So you can say that Tianjin will have multiple skylines which will be separate.

Tianjin has lots of 200m+ buildings U/C but they're extremely slow. By 2025 all the individual projects in Tianjin is expected to be completed

I will now share photos of Yujiapu Business District

Can you get us an overall skyline shot of all this? It's difficult to put it all into perspective in bits and pieces like this.

These are some of the projects currently U/C in the Entertainment District in Toronto (west of the CBD). I can count six cranes just in this shot.

They are not necessarily the kind of pics I wanted. It's just that the forum is better served and the city is better served this way.

London's certainly on a building boom, but it's also chasing moving targets. Lots of cities ahead of it are building just as much; many are building more. London is around the 54th largest skyline in the world, but I have it around 33rd today based on the quality of the architecture and other considerations. 2025? London will surely move up, but perhaps only into my top 25.

It is very beautiful, but it's far too small for a World's best list. Same goes for Vancouver.

This source places London at 57, Toronto at 16, and Miami at 28. The here and now is what you were talking about, not what could be. Plus, one habitable supertall does not mean much when another city has several more over 200m.

I stand corrected. London has the 57th largest skyline not the 54th largest. Even Calgary (53rd) is ahead of London in skyline scale at this point. Regarding London's Shard, it's official height may be 306m vs. 298m for First Canadian Place but it's a classic case of:



Putting them side by side it's easy to tell that FCP is the far larger building. The Shard's highest floor is only at 244m.

And a sea of towers that dwarfs London in every other category. Toronto also has more U/C and proposed so the gap is going to widen not diminish. Miami? I'm hoping it can move up a few spots and into the top 25 in 2-3 years. It would be great having 5 north American cities in there. In some respects, Miami is still in the top 25. If you add Sunny Isles to the total, metro Miami is in 23rd spot.

I do consider the shard a supertall since it has a crown and not a spire but in terms of skyline impact the two tallest building in Toronto probably have it beat or are at least even.

I know numbers say Toronto will have more 100+ meter buildings than Chicago but Chicago's skyline does look a lot bigger, CN tower aside the tallest building in Toronto is about as high as 311 building next to Sears, plus the next three tallests are in the 350m range. Obviously height isn't everything but I don't think Toronto will overtake Chicago that soon, if ever.
