3- Paris --> one of the best skylines if seen from far away, especially when juxtaposed with the Eiffel Tower or Notre Dame. Still, the closer you come to it, the less appealing it looks. Don't like the dull color and cladding of most of the buildings, and one taller tower is missed.

4- Moscow --> impressive and prominent CBD, still lacking on soul. I think this best defines what I don't like about Moscow.

5- Istanbul --> Amazing development over the last years. The skyline looks a tad spread out, which contributes to keeping it away from the top3 in my ranking.

6- Warsaw--> Interesting and iconic skyline placed right in the heart of the city, the Palace of Culture and Science is a masterpiece but some of the other towers need a recladding.

7- Rotterdam --> Very cool waterfront skyline which managed to develop its own style. Since height is not impressive (170m max), the absence of a dense city around the towers keeps them prominent. Still, the Rotterdam style gets a little tedious after a while and some buildings are ******* ugly, like the infamous De Rotterdam.

8- Milan --> the most impressive development in the last year, they have quality and original towers, but density is an issue. Also, they chose to go for 2 different clusters A-la-London, which will ultimately affect Milan's chances to get any closer to the podium.

9- The Hague --> lovely, compact skyline which now needs some variety to get better (e.g. glassy towers)

10- Vienna --> I really like the city, but I think the skyline doesn't add that much to it for now. Donau City is an empty land which needs to become more attractive for viennese people.

Great mix of old and new in Milan! These old areas are being renovated due to the proximity to the new towers, value of buildings is increasing, a big success!

This is the result of a good planning where the new cluster area works mainly as a new hotspot for normal citizens, far from being a dull business district for white collar workers only.
