So basically, no change in rankings.. in the top 10.
BUT Chongging barely hold on to the spot.. Next year's top 10 spot will be interesting, with 2 contenders!!!


Does anyone have the numbers for 2012?.. i just want to compare the changes.
Yea the #10 spot has always been close the last few years with Chongqing always having an edge. http://tudl0867.home.xs4all.nl/skylines.html. But before then it was Singapore having the #10 spot.

Chicago's ranking has also taken a beating over the years. Next year there is no doubt Guangzhou will overtake it.

As requested, the ranking in 2012:

1. Hong Kong 91,383 pts
2. New York 37,259
3. Shanghai 23,688
4. Tokyo 23,078
5. Dubai 22,947
6. Chicago 16,884
7. Guangzhou 16,529
8. Bangkok 15,936
9. Shenzhen 14,096
10. Singapore 11,340

Would you have 11-25? I saved it last year, but lost all the data.

Houston is epic though. It can compete with the big players below that Gotham/Blade Runner Tier (NYC, HK, Shanghai, Chicago, Dubai)

In my opinion the best skyline is not the one with the highest towers, or even one who shows most.
