I like this picture of Warsaw. Looks very urban. Unfortunately it is such a small photo!

I believe its Wola district, lot of investments were done, many more to come, may look urban from this angle, but theres still a lot of empty plots(like the one on first plan) waiting for scrapers, which will hopefully cover Lucka city(white monster on the right)

Another one from Warsaw.

Indeed they are. Hope next decade right side of the picture will be filled with 10-12 new +100m from 'Operación Chamartín' plus the Convention Building in the 4 towers cluster, which is a massive monster 125m tall, 80m long, 30m width.

Thats the best angle i seen of Madrid's skyline, pictures taken from the other side makes the other towers appear to small or can't be seen because they sit on lower ground. I wish Madrid sat in a more even flat surface. And yes the four towers are massive in term of european skyscrapers.

Thanks!

True, But Leeds Is just an average UK city, Rotterdams a capital? It's Like London And Leeds not even on the same level On size and scale But Leeds has Some great waterfront, And judging the building quality in rotterdam, its Not verry impressive, on the scale of a city its at? this building Here in Leeds is more interesting, not exactly the tallest thing ever but better then out ive seen on the rotterdam pictures. image hosted on flickr

from Wikipedia:

The municipality Rotterdam is the second largest in the country, with a population of 584,046 as of January 2007

The historic core at the heart of Leeds in 2001 had an estimated subdivision population of 443,247,[16] whilst the entire city, that includes the urban and suburban areas incorporated into the city in 1974, had an estimated population of 770,800 (2008 est.).[17]

----
Rotterdam allready has a great Skyline with much Highrises and there are a lot of Highrises Under Construction.
The highest building in Leeds is 110 meter, Rotterdam has 8 skyscrapers from 110 meter and higher... More then 15 buildings above the 100 meter.

Leeds population is 1.6M including suburban areas???? rotterdam municipality is the second largest in the country, with a population of 584,046 as of January 2007. It forms the southern part of the Randstad, the sixth-largest metropolitan area in Europe, with a population of 6.7 million. ......Big diff there as ... rotterdam is like netherlands New york
