The cluster looks tacky, even though some of the individual skyscrapers are quite good. That orange skyscraper ruins everything (imo). I like the contrasts of Moscow though. The skyline ... not so much.

That is one thing... I also don't get why in the hell all those investments started allmost at once. It looks like it was totally central planned (not only the urban structure but development as well), because I doubt that suddenly there was shuch a demand for offices that in 5-10 years time they had to build all those towers in similiar height, architecture and in one place. What's the deal with that, how does it work?

"Suddenly" is Dubai.. First project of "Internationa Business Center" in Moscow was in 1992.. Construction started in the end of 90s.
And high-rise construction is going overall in Moscow. There are about 60-80 appartment houses that have 100+ meters, not uncluding office buildings.
They all are just in diffirent places, that's why they don't compose a skyline..

Has there ever been any demand for office in Dubai, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi?



It's prestige, nothing else.

Not in Moscow. Moscow has the demand for this buildings. It's a city with a population over 12 mln. people. It's a buisiness city with many firms havin their headquaters there or an office. And it's a city where many tourists came to.

And in this cluster there are buildings hosting appartements, offices and hotels.

7. Liverpool .... skyline alone puts liverpool here ... but this city has character and gave the world The Beatles.... end of ! lol

9. Vienna...Vienna is Vienna ! Vienna is sacrosanct in european culture and her skyling is beginning to reflect this...


10. Naples.... overlooked.... but take a look !
Why are you ranking the cities? You should rank the skylines. The Beatles don't make the Liverpool skyline looking good.

About 10 Towers >200m within 10 years?

Nope, most of these where build due to prestige purporses.
Trust me on this, I just finished a research paper about this topic.

In most russian cities there is a huge demand for appartements and also for offices.
The towers are all financed by private investors. They wouldn't do this, if there wouldn't be a demand.
