By the way, great picture of Shanghai posted earlier in this page. Shanghai is really a beast! With supertalls popping outside of the Pudong area, I see this skyline rising fast to the first place worldwide.

I think HK will always have an advantage on Shanghai : the density and the natural settings .
And I tend to think that a city like Shenzhen may become in the future the best in China in terms of skyline as it'll have a very extensive skyline composed of numerous clusters .
And the end of the construction boom is becoming obvious actually !

Thx Juan, North American Skylines look quite elegant and classical.

Not for chongqing, the skyline still look 'filthy' due to the slum apartments and the river as well

Moscow not in the top 15 due to small skyline

And Tokyo should not be in top 10 to me

Good list. Kind of crazy that 5 of the top 8 are Chinese :P I also agree with ur placement of Guangzhou above Chicago. Guangzhou is really really amazing, and I think that along with Shenzhen will take the Chinese city skyline crown in the NEAR future. Its a good thing that NYC is undergoing a huge building boom. Because I fear for Hong Kong's ranking dropping to other Chinese cities. With even Chongqing challenging it in under a decade. Cities around the world can't keep up with Chinese construction, and I feel that in 20 years the top 30 skylines will all be asian (except NY, Chi, Toronto, and maybe Miami). I also think that NY will be the only none asian city in the top 10, 10 years from now.

Yes, Miami! We're still building. We've had two booms in two consecutive decades, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

That's an optical illusion. Toronto's CBD cluster is very compact, but the skyline carries on a great distance north of that. You can see in the aerials below how expansive the core is. It's approximately 4.5 km of highrises from the lake traveling inland.

Yeah, that money shot by the lake fools a lot of people. I was amazed at how urbanized Toronto is so far north of the lake.
