And this is just the start. This is Moscow-City, there will also be City 2 and City 3... combined to form "Big City."
That's a pretty old skyline pic... but I haven't found any newer ones .

For more info: Moscow City
Who made that? The Klingons?

Are the buildings on the left the same as in your pic? Seems a bit more...



Same thing with LA... can't really tell whats new and whats old... that and it's kind of far away.
Toronto hasnt changed all that much in the last 6 years concerning the larger towers, but MANY smaller condo's (and one larger tower One king West which is around 170m) have gone up which have certainly made a difference in the skyline, especially the city place Towers (which arnt exactly small condos), those city place renderings you posted are very old, in my rendering some of the city place towers were not rendered as they have already been built, my rendering is much closer to what it will really look like with the possible exception of the signature tower which could be taller (up to 80 stories rumoured)
Its set to start to change drasticaly in the next 5 months, this summer and fall there could be up to 8 500+ footers under construction (2 u/c now)
And Thats not including Trump because we have no official date for it yet.

Ah, You beat me to it SE9

To be fair, we probably shouldnt assume the Minerva building will be built (thats the tallest building on the right, for those who dont know) - its unlikly to go ahead. All those other proposals will hopefully be underway in the next few years though..

London will prob look more like this in 10 years time (same as above, just without Minerva)

No, the Sapphire tower has been rejected by city council do to shadowing, it is currently being re-designed as a smaller tower, it will be anywhere between 700 and 750 ft tall now instead of the original proposed height of 1122ft (342m), it will have a sqaure floor plate rather then a circle now and a slanted roof instead if a tacky ball. The release of the official rendering is still pending.
