I can't think of another major world skyline undergoing this magnitude of a transformation. Sure, NYC has a ton going on right now, but some of the projects get lost in the already magnificent skyline.

Paris is doing it too, as i am Franco-English. Paris is being transformed by the new skyline. I think Paris and london are the best skylines in Europe what do you think. Hello i m Jean pierre.

I think the anglosphere is the only place where new skyscrapers get buit almost everywhere. No seperation between new and old. Didn't know Paris was building skyscrapers in historical low rise areas.

Yes it is true that in centre Paris not so many are build, but i think this is good for Paris and bad for London, as it destroyes the old city. But places in Paris which are near the 'peripherique' are getting full. Fisrt of all you have La Defense and the twin towers of 320m are almost under cosntruction, then you have tours Duo at 13th arrondissemnet, tour triangle, cite judiciere, tour helice and and a new Defense area next to tours Duo which is planned for 2019. there are a lot.
