Ankara is so underrated on this thread, I've seen some shots of it where it's larger and denser than many other cities posted here.

I need to go get some fresh air.
Why trolling? It's Greedy Sheedy's opinion and I must admit I agree in some of the comments.

Rotterdam does have a great skyline with some cool looking buildings, it's always developing at a steady and continuous pace, instead of having building booms then building busts, this ensures it will continue to get denser and denser, and that in turn will lead to taller buildings as people want appartements that offer views above the other towers.
I'd say in about 4 or 5 years Rotterdam will reach that density tipping threshold at which point much taller buildings will begin to get built.
I wouldn't put Rotterdam as number 1 right now, but I know some might, as, (in Britain particularly) Dutch architecture is held in very high esteem, the Hague and Amsterdam also have this same quality. I wish more countries in Europe would follow the Dutch city planning model of dense central cores of tall buildings, similar to Canadian cities, just on a smaller scale.

One of the reasons I like it is due to this and the fact that it looks like a natural progression of a city, not a sort of 'build it and they will come' area or a totally commercial area with no life. The buildings interact with the streets and their surroundings seamlessly, and this is something I appreciate.

It is held in high esteem and I am one of those advocates of Dutch architecture. I think it's elegant and long lasting compared to a lot of modern architecture, not too ostentatious, just subtle and serves a purpose.

People on here seem to have a problem when one voices an opinion which differs from theirs which is a shame but I am sure there are others, who like me prefer Rotterdam over many other established cities and skylines.

Any plans to finish this abandoned TV tower? Even if it's not needed for any practical reason it would still make sense to do something with it, so it wouldn't look like there was a war or something.

Really someone likes Rotterdam? This are not skyscrapers but blocks... Skyscrapers are made from glass.
