Nubian Warrior, he's right! Every thing here is a matter of opinion and everybody is entitled to their own opinion without others getting bent out of shape. It's all arbitrary and a matter of opinion anyway. If you are going to talk like this, naturally people are going to come down on you. You should tone it down a bit.

According to SSC rules, it is. We've already established this.

This is irrelevant off-topic conversation. Stay on point please, all of you.

This source starts at 90m. I prefer the 150m mark, but as you said, it's all arbitrary.

What are the rules?
This list is an attempt to rank the impressiveness of city skylines. The score of a city is equal to the sum of all building heights (structural height, in m) after substraction of the minimum of 90m/295ft for each building. Freestanding towers (not skyscrapres) count for half their height. Only completed and topped-out buildings are included. [more details]

Using your source it would stand down like that:
1- Russia | Moscow
2- Turkey | Istanbul
3- France | Paris
4- UK | London
5- Germany | Frankfurt

Moscow is by far the most impressive skyline. That is beyond question.

But the skyline could still tolerate more buildings with a other facade than glass.

Well, it doesn't impress me. Individual buildings looks good, together it just doesn't fit together.
Just because something is big, doesn't mean it's better.

tall isn't anything, should also put density, balance of heights into consideration.

You have to be rated to be overrated.

IMO London's skyline currently is to spread out as it's to large. If you bung all of the skyscrapers into one central place though such as every other city it's competing with on this thread it would be so far ahead.

That's why I think many believe that London with the hundreds of towers going up, adding tremendous density and further height will go to another level once it starts coming to fruition.

There was a great picture posted yesterday which showed the Isle of Dogs, Greenwich Peninsular which when complete will be incredible.

The area around the Millennium Dome has dozens of towers planned. You've got the small but growing cluster near Ontario Tower adjacent to the Millennium Dome, then you have Canary Wharf itself which has over 30 towers over 100m approved or U/C alone.



When the city adds The Bishopsgate tower, Scapel and starts spreading our to the Goodsyards, when Beetham joins the southbank alondside Wanda's towers and 9 Elms starts getting taller with a dozen or so 150m+ blocks. The skyline from any angle is going to look joined and consistant and that's when there will only be one answer to this question.

We have the same problem in Istanbul...the skyscrapers are spread out over multiple continents

There are 5 U/C towers around the Galatasaray stadium also; 2 x 287m, 252m, 212m and 200m. So we'll have another disconnected cluster...

London is my favorite city in the world. Frankfurt is not for me but I can't say it is a "bad" city.

Istanbul(Konstantinoupolis as you say it) is really something else though. Jesus I just notice that Istanbul is bigger than 23 European countries. Actually this is a sad fact. A city shouldn't be as big as Istanbul. It drags down the quality of life dramatically. It clearly indicates that the Turkish state can't provide equal services to everywhere within the country. Even within Istanbul, there are districts that make me feel like I am in Pakistan or something. Then I go to another district in Istanbul and feel like I am in a western European country. The contrast is too high and it scares me for the future of Turkey.

I don't know which Frankfurt you guys visited but the one I visited had Roman ruins and a cool 6-700 year old tower. But of course it can't have as much history as London, Paris, Moscow or Istanbul...but I don't really understand what all this have to do with skylines...
