On the Fordham Spire, I think it would be better as an office than condominiums. Anyway, I think Chicago's skyline will improve more with all these new developments happening.

Since the Fordham Spire is at the northern edge of the skyline, it is able to balance itself with the Sears Tower and both buildings will be noticed well in the skyline. AON would be the middle anchor.

I think the positioning of The Fordham Spire fits very well with Chicago's skyline since the building is also right in the centre.

Cities like Nanjing or Chongqing may have some supertalls but they can never be the best skyline in the world

Chongqing does have the potential because of its geography, with the main downtown area curving around the river and hills on the other side to give it a nice frame / vantage point. However, they'll have to pull a Dubai before coming close to developing a full skyline.

I was looking at Chongqing's skyline at the city profiles thread. It does remind me of New York. One of the buildings in the city got influenced by The Chrysler Building.

these threads are so boring how many threads like this one have been created? and the answers are always the same

by the way, my favourite skyline is Shangai, because it looks really unreal and futuristic. it seems a image rendering.. but its real, and that's awsome ehehehe

But this one is the official thread Anyway, there's a website that ranked Shanghai higher than New York which I disagree.

There are a lot of studies floating around out there, but I doubt many of them are actually credible. When I see a study that doesn't even show a methodology, it's not even worth looking at. For these so-called 'skyline studies', the criteria can be tweaked and a whole new set of results can arise. In that sense, what is the relevance that city X is better than city Y in study C?

It's a good try attempting to objectify a subjective opinion.

"Studying" skylines and trying to rate them using a mathematical logarithm is stupid and a complete waste of time.

Skylines are like art - it's all about personal asthetics.

You don't get morons (or do you?) trying to determine using mathematics whether "The Last Supper" is a better art piece than the "Mona Lisa".

Sometimes it's useful especially since skylines have a number of individual buildings plus height.

Yea it's nice to know those facts - but you don't have to create and design a site called 'World's best skylines' and then base them purely on the number of buildings over a certain height.

You can just create a website about skyscrapers and list those facts per city on that website.

True but still there are some who create these sites and they can be sometimes useful you know what I mean.
