I cannot find a better pic,
But, this Da Vinci Tower looks so out of place..
The only "European Wannabe" tower in Jakarta, (Except an Old European Jakarta Cathedral or so)
XD
This tower has received many complaints,

Tour de bretagne in Nantes (France) is quite lonely, it is 144m and the other tallest building in the city is only 80m but not near to the "skyscraper" at all.



La tour du credit Lyonnais (165m) in Lyon (France) also looks very lonely even if two other towers in la part dieu are over 80m, but this tower is getting somme neighbours, tour oxygen 117m and tour incity 200m.

Tv towers may not qualify as skyscrapers but it they do they would fit perfectly. High and usually the highest thing in the vicinity.

Berlin , Riga for example

Some churches are also the highest thing around and really stick out from some European cities.

Cebu's newest high rise is pretty lonely right now. But it promises to invite friends soon!

Next to Torre Altus in Mexico City (195m) there are just many rich homes, and some little highrises

The Tun Mustapha Tower, formerly known as The Sabah Foundation Building in Sabah, Malaysia, has gotta be the loneliest skyscraper by far.

You're right, Taipei is the loneliest, everything around it seems like at least 8-10 times shorter than taipei 101. Wow I love that pic tho.

Indeed: it's the only skyscraper in that part of the city. And the highest in Brussels.
