If it's between Frankfurt, London and Paris as of today, then no, the City of London nor Canary Wharf is number 1 between those cities. However, come 2020 I honestly believe Canary Wharf will have the better skyline between the below cities.


2017

1. Frankfurt
2. Paris
3. Canary Wharf
4. City of London


Canary Wharf 2017

1. One Canada Square | 235m
2. 8 Canada Square | 200m

5. 25 Bank Street | 153m
6. 40 Bank Street | 153m
7. 10 Upper Bank Street | 151m
8. Baltimore Wharf | 150m
9. Pan Peninsula East | 147m
10. 22 Marsh Wall East Tower | 140m
11. 25 Churchill Place | 124m
12. Novotel Canary Wharf | 124m
13. Pan Peninsula West Tower | 122m
14. One West India Quay | 111m
15. Dollar Bay Tower | 109m
16. 33 Canada Square | 105m


Canary Wharf U/C - Site Prep 2020

1. Spire London | 235m | Site Prep
2. Landmark Pinnacle | 233m | U/C
3. Newfoundland Tower | 220m | U/C
4. South Quay Plaza Tower 1 | 215m | U/C
5. One Park Drive | 204m | Site Prep
6. Wardian London Tower 1 | 187m | U/C
7. The Madison | 182m | Site Prep
8. Wardian London Tower 2 | 169m | U/C
9. 10 Park Drive | 150m | U/C
10. 1 Bank Street | 147m | U/C
11. Maine Tower | 144m | U/C

I don't know why London is wasting money in all these useless (in terms of skyline) short towers around 100-150 m, when with that money it can afford some few towers of 350 m or more...London skyline is still too short, often invisible, too "european" to be something "light years" ahead as someone said. and too spread out...the Shard is isolated, when it should have been built in Canary Wharf or in the City
