Best skylines with no supertalls

*First of all*, this topic bars any city with a tower above 300m. (including TV/Observation Towers) So no Toronto, Paris, Tokyo, Doha, Las Vegas, Tehran etc...
Most people like the skylines which have the exceptional height that not many cities have achieved. However, this achievement is becoming more common as the years roll by. Barring cities with supertalls, which city do you think has the best skyline?


I'll start off with Singapore

Melbourne won't be on this list for a long time. I think it has 3 or 4 proposed?

Singapore for sure. Singapore has no supertall only because of the airport. if it wasn't for towers, tokyo would be in a similar situation. Panama is also a pretty underrated city, should be second place after singapore. jakarta is out with its first supertall risen over 300m i guess. so manila third for me. hangzhou next, visited it a few months ago and the city has potential and quite some towers out already. After that would be melbourne, but one tower has an antenna making it supertall to the tip, which kicks it out of the list. it's crazy how many cities have towers that kick them out. sydney, chengdu thought i would rank them quite well and then bang tower and out

#. cityname (est. number of skyscrapers at the end of 2015)
1. singapore (28)
2. panama city (24)
3. manila (31)
4. hangzhou (15)
5. dallas (7)
6. qingdao (9)
7. xiamen (11)
8. philadelphia (5)
9. manama (6)
10. nanning (7)
11. changsha (6)
12. brisbane (4)
13. seattle (4)
14. fuzhou (7)
15. minneapolis (4)
16. miami (4)

edit: for some reason i thought the space needle was supertall, wow was i wrong, so seattle go in!

The only cities I'm sure do not have supertalls are Singapore and Manila because of the height limit.

Singapore

Not wanting to sound biased but IMO Melbourne has an awesome skyline & it doesn't have any supertalls (not yet anyway).

Melbourne has a building with a height over 300m to the tip of the antenna though. the first post even includes structures ans towers over 300m, so Melbourne is out.
