London doesn't have the best skyline in Europe, the reason being its skyscrapers are split into two clusters, Canary Wharf and The City of London. London is playing catch up as said before.

The City of London cluster has 6 skyscrapers, of which the first was Tower 42 built in 1980, it wasn't until 2003 when 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin) was completed that the trend of building skyscrapers initiated. The City of London cluster is also supplemented by ten, 100+ meter towers.

110 Bishopsgate 230m (2011)
The Leadenhall Building 225m (2013)
Tower 42 183m (1980)
30 St Mary Axe 180m (2003)
Broadgate Tower 164m (2008)
20 Fenchurch Street 160m (2014)


The Canary Wharf cluster has 7 skyscrapers, and again its first skyscraper was One Canada Square built in 1991. Canary Wharf is supplemented by eight, 100+ meter buildings.

One Canada Square 235m (1991)
8 Canada Square 200m (2002)
25 Canada Square 200m (2002)
One Churchill Place 156m (2004)
25 Bank Street 153m (2003)
40 Bank Street 153m (2003)
10 Upper Bank Street 151m (2003)


On top of this London has St George Wharf Tower 181m (2013) and The Shard 309m (2012) of which both aren't situated in any cluster. However a new cluster will form alongside the St George Wharf Tower, called Nine Elms. London's skyline will be centred around three major clusters', because of this Frankfurt and Paris have the upper-hand, regarding a continuous single cluster. However with the sheer amount of skyscrapers planned ahead in the coming years this could change significantly.

Currently my top skylines'

Frankfurt - Height and Density.
Paris - Density and Density. (if Hermitage Plaza is built it will be number 1)
London - Height, Density and variety, however not in one cluster.
Moscow - Height and Height! Unfortunately clusters throughout city.
Warsaw - Density, a rising star.
Milan - Density, another rising star.
Istanbul - Height and Density, has so much potential. (Shame about terrain and clusters)

Well, in that regard it's difficult to consider Paris / Frankfurt as being similar compared to London. CW immediate surrounding is made of mid size buildings. But LaDefense immediate surrounding is very similar to CW. Lots of midsize buildings. When it comes to a wider surrounding, Paris is far more dense. The whole city is a carpet of 8/9 stories buildings. This may diminishes the effect of La Defense height.... Although for Frankfurt I obviously agree
