The gradient makes the Maastoren a reasonable high-rise.

You are one the few here that likes them. I appreciate it.
Rotterdam has got a colorful skyline because lots of the high-rises in RTM are residential towers and therefore don't have glass cladding. I don't like them all. The Hoge Heren and the Waterstadtoren are horrible, but the New Orleans, Montevideo, Red Apple and 100 Hoog are an asset to the skyline. One of my favorites is the Scheepmakerstoren. The disadvantage is the height of 88m.

Particularly I like these kind of shots. Some how it does reminds me of the NY skyline. Which is very varied because of the brick buildings.

@ aarhusforever

The photo of Rotterdam was taken from the suburb where I am living.

Last time I took a photo from this spot was on Christmas Eve.

Great diagram, mlody89.


But why are the Warsaw skyscrapers always counted with antenna and not the roof height?

If you count the total height of the skyscraper in Frankfurt, the list would look like this:

1. Commerzbank Tower:__300m
2. Messeturm:__________257m
3. Maintower:__________240m
4. Westendtower:_______208m
5. ECB-Headquarters:____201m
6. PWC Tower:__________200m
7. Trianon:_____________186m
8. Opernturm:___________170m
9. Taunusturm__________170m
10. Silberturm:__________166m
11. Westendgate:_______162m
12. D-Bank 1:___________155m
13. D-Bank 2:___________155m
14. Skyper:_____________154m
15. Pollux:______________150m

Paris for me is really the best skyline. It does not matter that it is not very high but is probably 30 small and large skyscrapers that create a coherent whole.
