Madrid IMO has a nice skyline now but we have under construction BBVA,Windsor and Adequa and they are about 100 meters tall and the CICCM 120 meters also U.C. are 2 small towers about 80 meters I think they are called Ambar and Gestesa. So I think whithin a year or so we are gonna be in top of Euroskylines for sure with those 5 medium new towers.
Not to mention those that are plan under the Castellana street extension, but thats another thread.

Good news It looks like the credit crunch doesn't realy have a bad side effect on Rotterdam.

In june there will be a final decision for a 149m tall tower and many other towers are u/c right now.
The city also announced that there are plans for more than 50 towers in the upcoming years,

What is so special and UNIQUE about the Rotterdam skyline? Almost all highrises are towers to live in.
In Frankfurt and other cities there are more office towers, Rotterdam only has a few.

Not realy
Most of those towers will be towers to live in, not all.
Second, a tower won't be constructed before all the (or 80%) of the apartments are sold.

I agree, not has many buildings as other skylines, but has a lot of high quality buildings. The problem is that the 2 main financial clusters are so away from each other and in a line. If the 4 towers were built around with this 100+ meters towers Madrid would have had a really nice cluster. I guess they will have to wait for OPCH

imo every city with real skylines in EU like Paris, Frankfurt, London, Rotterdam, Warsaw has high quality buildings (at least major highrises), this is how it is build in Europe.(with little exceptions like Benidrom)

Madrid's problem is that the highrises already existing could possibly compose a nice skyline, but they dont, cos they are too far from each other.

I hope i didnt confused Madrid with Barcelona
