Since when was a city's size directly proportionate to the number of skyscrapers?

Besides, as already mentioned, there are 4X 150m and 3x 200+m skyscrapers in Canary Wharf, this view is rather limited.

In this case I wouldn't say that London is a skyscraper city

Check out www.emporis.com for yourself!

Bare in mind though that these stats include all buildings over 12 stories.

To be fair this thread is in the wrong section, and the title should be changed to take 'supertall' out of it

It was 307m (325m AOD) when this thread was first started. Then it was reduced to 288m (307m).

Strictly speaking, this should be in the high rise section.
