It's crazy how fast Europe has changed.

I have viewed the timeline on Skyscraperpage.

1990, there were not even 25 skyscraper in Europe.
And today there are already over 200.

The number has risen in just 20 years by ten times.

I'm interested to see whether the growth rate will continue in the future? 2040=2000 Skyscraper

Don't worry , i'm not trying to say Lyon can match with Milano

Just that it has a great potential because the skyline lay in the middle of a vast dense core (without being on the very historical center) just like Milano, Warshaw or Vienna, and is improving a lot, with the help of an old iconic skyscraper and a lot a news projects going on for 2020

At this time, it may become iconic amongst europeans skylines. A bit like liverpool which is beautifull in its own way.

But it must happen a lot,
before one can speak of a skyline like Miami.

I usually don't post photos of Monaco in this thread for several reasons. Monaco is one of my fav cities in the world, but it's really lacking a defined skyline imo. It has lots of highrises, but due to the location of the city on a mountainside, it's very difficult to get a good shot of the skyline. Besides that I don't think it has one of the best skylines in Europe and therefore imo doesn't belong in this thread

If you want to see more of Monaco, I suggest you take a look at this thread by Christos:
