Yeah I don't think this thread should be limited to HK, NYC, CHI, Shanghai or Dubai. While I appreciate any pictures from those cities, it's also nice to see other cities.

Speaking of Moscow, Triumph Palace imo is the only legitimately beautiful skyscraper of Moscow

What about Moscow State, the Radisson Royal Hotel, and City of Capitals? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I assumed those were liked by most people.

Fair enough. Strange, but I've often thought that The Seven Sisters look similar to what College Park in Toronto would have looked like if completed. I'm still hoping they can finish the 2nd of the 4 corners plus the planned primary tower that was to rise from the middle.

MOST OF THE EUROPEAN CITIES...YUP! THAT INCLUDE MOSCOW HAVE THE POOREST TASTE OF SKYLINES compare to the rest parts of the worlds... They are even worse than those African cities like Cape Town, Johanesburg etc... I believe Asian Cities had overtaken American Cities in Being the BENCHMARKS AND RE-DEFINE WHAT SKYLINES IS ALL ABOUT...

same counts for Capetown. Joburg got a better skyline. imo GCC is Australias juwel.
Hongkong still beats Shanghai. same is with NYC and Chicago. I can only agree with
Moscow and Europe.
Puh-leaseRio isn't the most beautiful city of SA sincerely I think Santiago, Buenos Aires and Montevideo take that title, now if we're speaking of skylines Santiago isn't the best just beacause Santiago has 2 new skyscrapers, Major skylines in SA are Rio, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Bogota, Caracas and Buenos Aires

The World's Best Skylines

The world's foremost authority on the topic "weighs-in." Because I dont have (or know how to obtain) a JPG of the current edition, below is the top 40 from 2008. To view today's update (how the rankings have changed), click here: -> The World's Best Skylines

That 2011 link doesn't seem to be up date which makes the 2008 list you posted suspect as well. According to the 2 charts, Toronto built a grand total of zero 90m+ buildings between 2008 and 2011. Toronto likely built about 100 buildings over 90 m in that period. I'm not sure how you can qualify them as the 'foremost authority' on anything when they haven't bothered to update some of the cities in 3 years.

There are a number of cities missing from that chart, but the figures look about right.
