I'm sorry, but if you're talking about the future then you'd have to be a raving lunatic to exclude London.

london already has one of the best skylines. canary wharf is a great cluster, even if the architecture of each building isn't particularly good. but I think only the city of london has the potential to become the best skyline. though many towers will have to be built there to reach an effect like this - atleast all of the city proposals:

Why do you feel the need to go on such a crusade on this forum to defend London's skyline in each and every thread where it is mentioned?

I mean, we all understand that you love London, and a lot of us do too, but this is getting like a obsession

If they build them with 94 & 74 storey, probably will reach 400m and 350m. (with decorational top of course)

@emree
Ok, we all know, twisted towers are Dubai Towers, and probably it will be built. But what about others?

These projects in the picture are not certain projects (also we don't know any detail about designs of them) except DTI, so please don't put this kind of pictures.

Also this is my future list:
Moscow
Istanbul
Warsaw

Frankfurt would have the same projects as well. It can still have the title several years from now.

Frankfurt kick ass London and Paris by far...Furthermore I think Madrid's gonna be one of the best in a few years (probably in 10 years) when the new financial district near Madrid Arena be unlocked and begin to rise some talls between 200-325 more or less...just wait

Also Benidorm has a pretty good skyline , but not a very good architecture .
Anyway I think it's in current top 10.

My rank:
1. Frankfurt
2. Paris/London
4. Warsaw/Rotterdam
6. Istambul/Moscow (not only size is important, quality first of all, most of Istambul`s skyscrapers are trashy. Turkish design is terrible.
8. Vienna

.............Madrid soon

Looks like European cities got in the scraper craze Though I like Paris' concept of having most of it's highrises in it's suburbs / outskirts.
