Well in the future, i don't think there is any doubt that Moscow will be by far the best skyline in Europe. They are building some of the largest buildings, not only in europe, but the world. I was just wondering though, how do you guys think moscows current skyline compares to London?

paris skyline will be the best in europe with the 2 300 m approvals and the overall skyscraper density of la defense.

moscow skyline wont be close. it will have some heights but will lack density and quality of design. i think moscow city will be like current shanghai pudong.
very impressive but somewhat rushy.

I like Moscow's skyline but I prefer having the original Russia Tower built there.

It is part of London... politically, geographically... whatever definition you use.
However, it is not part of the 'City of London', a title which confuses many people. The 'City of London' is a district within the London city-limits.


The red dot shows the location of Canary Wharf, and the thick-black line is London city-limits:

Canary Wharf is one small part of the Docklands area, and is the key financial district location. However, redevelopment is taking place at and beyond Canary Wharf.

Ahh I often see those two districts in separate pictures and always assumed they were in the same area, but apparently not. Still not entirely sure about the city planning of London, guess I have some reading to do.

Thanks to those who helped

Come on, how can you say moscows skyline wont be close when in reality, Moscows building tons of scrapers over 300m, several over 400m, and one over 600m!! And unlike Paris, its not just a proposal, they are actually already under construction. I mean the difference between the size of the scrapers in the two cities is immense. Buildings the size in La defence are everywhere in NA and Asia so its really nothing special. Even if you don't like how its set up, to say its not even close i think is a huge exageration.

Most new developments will be high-rises. Examples of what could and are coming to the Canary Wharf area include:


Code:
Riverside South (anticipated)



North Quay



Heron Quays West



Pan Peninsula (Under Construction)



Marsh Wall (Construction starting)



East India Dock Road Development
