London's Canary Wharf alone should be a serious contender.

Imagine if London has only one cluster, combined future skyline of Canary Wharf, City of London, Nine Elms, Southwark, Blackfriars, Stratford, Greenwich, Croydon and elephant & castle all located on the Isle of dogs. No doubt that London will have one of best top 10 skylines in the world and one of best skyline in Europe and the Isle of dogs going to be more like a modern version of Manhattan.

And if London city airport closed. then London definitely will increase a height of the tall building to 400m maybe even 500m in the isle of dogs.

However, London still has one of best skyline in the world with many clusters spreading out to West, East, City, South.

Yes for sure but it doesn't impeach to see it has a united global londonian skyline when you look from a special point you have all clusters in one

Good list Union_Man. London highrise construction activity looks very strong. I also like the direction London tower design is heading. It's far better than what was going up 10 years ago: more sophisticated, less gimmicky.

Thanks. Yes, for a Western European standard it's pretty remarkable, even compared to the West as a whole the construction boom is impressive - although pales into insignificance compared to your Toronto and New York.

I agree on the design front, it's nice to see some more solid, boxy proposals, rather than the trying too hard to make a statement sort of design. In the London Forum it's still up for debate as to what people prefer, the quirky or more practical design.

The amount of construction in Toronto and New York is astonishing but London's is nothing to sneeze at. 132 100m+ buildings under construction, approved, or proposed is a lot. If memory serves me correctly Elephant & Castle was a dump 30 years ago but those renderings look wonderful. What a change!

Regarding aesthetics I suspect that now that the novelty of skyscrapers is wearing off in London, people are favouring more timeless designs. I suppose one can see a similar pattern with new money. They initially gravitate to the shiniest object but the generation that follows seeks more understated elegance.

I have no issue with a few quirky buildings here and there but a whole skyline full of them just isn't my cup of tea. I guess not all see things that way.

It's really hard to find accurate future renders of Canary Wharf, but I've found this outline render from planning documents for (The Madison | 182m | Site Prep). This is the most up to date render I've seen as of yet, with the majority of these either U/C or Site Prep - this will transform Canary Wharf by 2020.

Manchester, UK

A shot of the City from the south, including most of the proposed development around the Deansgate Castlefield area. Most of the outline developments are under construction / site prep.

Here's how we hope Liverpool will look in a few years when all of the current proposals get going. Eventually another cluster of tall buildings will be created on the next dock along, not shown in this image, and the dock even further along is expecting a football stadium for Everton which should be around the 60,000 mark growing the city centre a mile or so further down the waterfront.



The area in the distance on this picture is where the above render will be, the second cluster and the stadium will be beyond that.

But you can edit your post and delete everything you said. However, I wouldn't recommend it, as the things you said are actually pretty funny.
