For me not even close.
1. NYC.
2. Chicago
3. HK

NYC and Chicago are my top 2 because they have a very nice variety of old to new scrapers. You really can't beat those art deco beauties - they possess a collection of scraper beauties from every era. They are big skylines, tall and well balanced. It's not even close for anything else.

HK is amazing too but way too much ugly apartments which those glassy scrapers do an ok job at hiding across the harbour.

Outside those I really like Seattle's for some reason I can't put my finger on. Singapore and Sydney are up there too and London is an up and coming one.

Toronto is definitely trending higher as is NYC I think, Chicago could start trending higher ever so slightly soon.

Toronto and New York are growing incredibly fast. The description next to each city was referring to its ranking. Despite a huge increase in the size of Toronto's skyline, I think it might only be enough to maintain 8th spot.... hence 'holding steady'. Toronto will likely get passed by skylines currently behind it, but reel in a few ahead of it. Likewise, New York can't improve on #1 hence 'holding steady' for them as well.

An uptick in activity in Chicago won't be enough to hold on to its ranking. Even with a Toronto sized boom, Chicago will likely fall behind Shenzhen before the decade is out. That amount of construction going on there is just on another level. Looking out further to 2025-2030, Mumbai will move ahead as well.

It's astonishing how many gargantuan skylines are forming in Asia.

I noticed that as well. There's not much separating them. With the exception of Bangkok, I have them all roughly where they stand in rankings that measure skyline scale. 5 in my top 20: that's a pretty good showing.

Bangkok, Manila, and Jakarta could do with a big iconic skyscraper. I can usually tell them apart, but the average person would not be able to. The top 10 is a hard nut to crack and these cities will need something unique to get them there.

Yes the HK island is not in the pic lol

HK must be the champion for density!

They also never include the skyline of tsuen wan, new territories and lantau island, all the residential are above 40 floors!
