Kyiv is somewhat unique because of the relief. For example, on the last picture, it's not obvious but the height difference between some buildings there are about 100 m. If it was flat, it would probably look like Rotterdam, I would say. With landscape it's harder to appreciated all the highrises located in CBD and around and there are plenty of them and some of them are not that bad quality.

For example, you won't see these buildings on any of the panorama shots as they are covered by 200 m hills. On flat surface they would form nice part of the skyline:

Or similarly this one:



Some residentials, most of them are in range of 100 m or more, in city center are also quite nice, but they just don't form the skyline like in other cities:



And there are about 30 or more such residentials within very small area but just devided by hills and valleys.

I though I just clarify this for those who never been to Kyiv and not familiar with it's landscape features.

The important thing is the quality, not quantity. How many Asian cities have hundreds of anonymous, cheap, horrendous skyscrapers?

Kiev is one of the best examples of density in Europe. I think it needs some 150+ meters highrises or skyscrapers located on the top of the hills as they made it in Istanbul for more visible and clarity skyline.

Problem with Kiev's skyline is that It's just like many skylines of southern America or eastern Asia - just random commieblocks and other blank residential towers. What this city needs is cluster of tall, modern designs with good materials on facades. This would give the city some identity. But please, don't do this the way Moscow did...

I have been to Kyiv 5 times in the last 2 months.
They only have 2 skyscrapers, the rest is just a sea of post soviet eye sore.

I currently live in Milano and Kiev has got nothing on this city skyscraper wise!
we have Porta Nuova, where another 150 meter tower is expected to rise in Melchiorre Gioia 22, next to Palazzo Regione Lombardia, a 90 meters tower where the Gilli Hotel was supposed to be next to Unicredit Tower, the recladding of Galfa Tower is due to commence in January , followed by the recladding of Torre Uffici Tecnici, the adjacent Scalo Farini which will keep up skewered to the chair in the next decade as many other high quality towers are due to be built by foreign investors and of course the majestic City Life District with its Il Dritto, Il Curvo, lo Storto, Park Tower and two 150 meters residential towers expected to be built in phase 2 tallying the cluster a total of 6 sexy towers !

It makes no sense, to disuss with them.
For trolls or vatniks, like they like to call themselfes, it doesn't matter how something is or looks. It' just good, when it's in Ukraine. The rest is just shit.

If Torre Velasca would be in Kiev, they would write all the time about the unique, historical, beatiful tower. But everything in Milan is of course bad.

Some examples of new residential towers in Kyiv:

Skyline Tower

PecherSKY

Riviera Riverside

Several residential towers in Kyiv Skyline

I don't think it looks like a skyline of South American cities (any comparison with Asian cities is an absolutely absurd)

Kiev could also have 373829292 buildings over 100m, but if this buildings look like a mass of commieblock, classical soviet anonymous buildings, the numbers doesn't count at all.
I'm not the person that find other city's skyline ugly, just because it isn't mine, but Kiev have no reason to stay in the top list.
Try to think more about quality than density.

Oplot-M is interesting person. He said that Ekaterinburg have crap ugly architecture (sometimes yes) but ABSOLUTELY CAN'T ACCEPT that Kiev's architecture is not so beautiful and best of the best as he see it. It's completely wrong to compare Milan and Kiev skylines and you're just doing total trolling here or just blindly trust in his ideals...

Quicksliver is much more objective and intelligent person than you
