Currently it's definitely Frankfurt. In 4 or 5 years it will be Moscow.

The most impressive cluster is certainly La Défense because there are simply towers everywhere when you're in the middle of it. It's deeply concentrated and that really gives a great impression. Furthermore, the quality of towers in La Défense is severly under-rated, probably because the skyline is dominated by the Gan and AXA towers (2 towers from the 70's) when we look at it from central Paris. However, there are tons of very beautiful buildings in La Défense : CBX, Société Générale Twin Towers, Total, Areva (which might be a box, but a pretty one), EDF, Grande Arche, Opus12. And of course, that can only improve in the future with T1, Exaltis and Granite (all under construction and looking attractive on renderings), but also with AXA being recladded, the new Sofitel proposal which has been approved, and of course the 400m supertall which is planned.


Now, in my opinion Frankfurt still wins it when it's about the individual quality of towers. They are really pretty. When I went in Frankfurt I've been actually a bit disappointed because I imagined all towers being next to one another and I didn't like at all the way they were sprawled on a large area. But once looking at the quality of each towers, I didn't regret my visit.

In my opinion Frankfurt and Paris are, for now, far ahead. Paris for the concentration of its cluster and Frankfurt for the individual quality of its towers.

After that, I'm expecting a lot of Madrid, which is currently building 4 towers above 200 m, but we have to wait 'till they are built to get really an idea about what it will look like. I can't judge Moscow and Istanbul as I've never been in those city.

If you look at it, Moscow has one of the largest number of scrapers in Europe but Frankfurt's got quality, height and layout.
