Top 15 Skylines Of The World





All my years in studying Urban Planning helped me grow a greater appreciation for the skyline of the big city. The downtown core of big cities across the world, are the cultural pulse and economic engines of urban regions where millions of people live. The skyline is the fingerprint of that city. All urban life begins each day and ends each night under the watch of the city's tallest skyscrapers and most grand architectural structures. So kick back and appreciate the view that they have to offer...

I know that site, it's pretty old. Several new developments over the last few years are not included. Nevertheless, his ranking method is pretty good though.

For me, Moscow is one of the world's great metropolises, an overwhelming mass of humanity with fascinating architecture and thriving commerce. However, it simply does not have the massive skyline a city would need to be considered for this thread. MIBC is a start, but the Seven Sisters are just too scattered throughout the city.

The Kremlin and St. Basil's is some of the best architecture in the world, though.

I agree with your views regarding Moscow. Moscow doesn't belong in this thread, but it possesses one of the strongest foundations upon which to build one of the world's great skylines. It's the cities that mix old with new that stand above the crowd. Moscow has the old, it just needs to build more of the new.

Like London, Moscow will one day have a skyline worthy of a world's best list. It's just not there yet.

Moscow's new part of CBD looks fantastic, it's really world class, just needs more buildings built, then it will be worthy of top ones!

After a bit of thought, I think as impressive as that photo is, it shows NYs greatest weakness, in that the skyline is not as centralized as its main competitors for #1 in the world, which are Chicago and Hong Kong.

Obviously we're all familiar with Lower Manhattan, and Midtown, but Jersey City has a 238 meter building, and about a dozen other fairly decent sized buildings. Long Island City has a 209 meter building, and a growing number of residential high rises along the East River. And Brooklyn's tallest is 515 feet, but is much denser and concentrated than JC or LIC. Anyway, great find.
