Lol, that is BS! The ususal height of buidlings in London is not that different to the height of buildings in Paris or Frankfurt. Also in general Frankfurt's towers are still higher than London's towers as of now. Only the Shard trumps the Commerzbank's antenna/spire (301m). By just 9m...

Frankfurt has a larger core of tall towers than the City of London. However London has far more mid-rise buildings (60m-100m) than Frankfurt, which lessens the impact of the skyscrapers it does have in the City. The towers Frankfurt has are quite large, but the surrounding city is much more low rise. Thus the Frankfurt towers do stand out more than those in the City of London.

I'd also argue that you can add the Shard and Guys to the City skyline, as they are only just across the river.

Speaking of which, London's southbank is developing quite nicely.

Sorry but that's not true, London has more and taller towers than frankfurt in all categories. 300m+/200m+/150m+100m+. In frankfurt you can see the towers right down to the base, that says it all about its density.
Besides I said frankfurt has a good skyline, which it does, and would still look good if it were in the city of London because of its 200m+ towers, it's just the density would not be there as all the -150m towers would dissappear.

In Frankfurt are the smaller high-rise buildings in the center of the cluster and between the skyscrapers.
In London they stand in front of the cluster of taller skyscrapers. That is the reason.

Can I just say in regards to the above.

Frankfurts skyline and La Defense's ae much more cohesive than London's right now. London's is actual quite disappointing in the fact it has so many towers but they are all over the place. Once it starts to bulk up and more towers finish this will change. London has a long way to go I believe before it has a world class skyline. (Canary Wharf excluded from this)

Core Rising is right however, London's towers don't soar as much as other European cities despite being taller due to the surrounding buildings. London is very dense already with many 50-100m buildings which affect the asthetics of the skyline. Hopefully the more it builds this will also change.

Kinda weird to compare the skyline of a small city with a city ten times larger.

The London skyline is one of a kind, and all the high- and midrises scattered around the city make it so interesting. But even if all projects are built, skyscrapers won't be as visible and prominent in the cityscape, as they are in a compact environment of a city like Frankfurt - even more so, once all current projects in Frankfurt are finished, which will easily double the main cluster.

In shere numbers London will always dominate - after all it's a city with 10x more people (even if we take metropolitan populations into consideration, London is still the Goliath)
