I consider the Shard a super tall as well, but it's a bit much to argue that London has Toronto beat in this one area because of a technicality. FCP is a bigger building, has an official height only 10m shorter, and Toronto also has the CN Tower. Technically the CN Tower isn't a building, but really now.

Obviously height isn't everything but I don't think Toronto will overtake Chicago that soon, if ever.
Chicago's skyline looks bigger because currently it is bigger.

U/C? Proposed? These things don't exist yet. They're in the process of being built or waiting approval so they can be built. Buildings U/C typically take 2-3 years to build. Buildings at the proposal stage can typically take up to 5-6 years till the actual building appears in the skyline. Built, U/C, + Proposed is a good indicator of what will exist around 2019. That might not be soon in your books, but it's not that far off imo.

Maybe this will clarify things. Toronto's skyline could more than double in size over the next 5-6 years.

# of 100m+ Buildings Built
Chicago 302
Toronto 180

# of 100m Buildings U/C + Proposed
Chicago 40
Toronto 195

That Marriott looks awesome. I'd love to see something similar for Toronto's Eaton Hotel reno.

When they finish the full buildout of Yujiapu it will be spectacular, definitely top 5. Unfortunately it's at least 15-20 years away. First phase is a good start but it has gotten bogged down.

For me, the most improved will be Chongqing, Shenzhen, and Guiyang.

Seeing this name 'Guiyang' for the first time in my life. Never knew it existed, or maybe didn't notice. What's special about it?

I hadn't heard of Guiyang until last year. It's #72 on that link QuantumX posted. I'll post the link again: http://tudl0867.home.xs4all.nl/skylines.html

Mountainous city in southwest China similar to Chongqing and undergoing a similarly radical expansion. The new district is easily 4-6x bigger than the old city. Due to the topography I think they can really create something special. However, it is still a relatively small and poor city.

What else are we supposed to post on a thread titled Best Skylines of 2025 if not renderings of projects planned for a city that can potentially make it one of the best of 2025 or projects currently under construction?

What would people post in a thread about future skyline other than renders and current photos of construction?

I've realized that for many larger Chinese cities such as Shanghai to retain large skylines in the future, they'll have to tear down apartment blocks sprawling all over the place that were only built 5-10 years ago!

Looks like a mashup of tons of Shanghai Towers to me!

This gives us no idea of what a future skyline might look like though.

Not all cities with all those criteria can/wants to build vertically though.. But of course they are important for "skyline cities" as well.

but yeah, we can also discuss those.. why don't you start it?

@Wingwing.. I think I will start with what you want

just now from Bloomberg..
Chinese Hubs Rise in Oxford Economics 2030 GDP Ranking: Cities
Quote:
Cities in China from Shanghai to Chongqing will grow the most among global metropolises in the next 16 years, according to a study by Oxford Economics Ltd.

By 2030, nine Chinese cities will join the world’s 50 biggest municipal economies, while eight in Europe will drop off the list, showed the paper released this week by the Oxford, England-based advisory firm. Of the 10 forecast to grow the most by gross domestic product, seven are in China, including Tianjin, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Suzhou.

....

Ranked by the size of their economy, the biggest metropolitan area in the world in 2030 will be Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles, London and Shanghai, Oxford’s report forecast.
GDP predictions could give us an idea.. but not directly proportional to Skyline..
Los Angeles will be 3rd economically.. but skyline wise... naaaahhh....


Good News for London though.. it looks like it will keep on growing.

posting a render of ONE or TWO projects won't help not even posting updates of the construction..... Posting render of all the projects and the skyline included like that one of Sydney a few post above is appropriate for this thread... ok? Would you like me Posting renders one project separately so you can imagine Mexico City's future skyline instead of posting ONE render of the skyline showing all the skyscrapers that are currently U/C or proposed that shows Mexico city's future skyline....
