Awesome pitcure, thanks a lot for sharing. But as for Moscow, you took only skyscrapers of Moscow City CBD while there are couple of dozens other skyscrapers: hotels, residential compounds and office buildings scattered throughout the huge city.

Anyway, very nice job!

Moscow looks like an unbeatable monster.

I hope the supertall trend starts to get going in Europe. Maybe fueled by Western-Russian rivalry??

Every building higher than 200 meters is uneconomical, don't forget that.

And nobody needs a new rivalry between Russia and the west. At the end both our economies need a healthy and solid progress.

Paris will probably build the next two Supertalls. I just say Hermitage Plaza.

I have to admit that it looks very good from this angle. Izmir is apparently growing, nevertheless it`s still not worth the first 10th in Europe.

Regarding the rest, the height of Moscow towers is impressive, nevertheless, I`ve still the impression of unbalanced skyline (kind a "Madrid" syndrome with some of the highest EU skyscrapers, but IMO looking very strange with almost no graduation, pinacles etc...). Thats why I still prefer Frankfurt and somehow also London comparing to Moscow City. Also, when speaking about massive skylines, the compact wall of La Defense is few steps ahead of the Istanbul counterpart...

I couldn't agree more . It's not necessarily about height or amount. It's more to do with how much synergy there is and how it compliments its surroundings. I think Izmir looks fairly desolate (for lack of a better word). I would go as far to say Liverpool's skyline is better and that isn't even mentioned on this thread.

Also, Rotterdam should clearly be higher, it is one of the best skylines in Europe, with it's boxiness and US style.



Liverpool ^
