The skyline is very dense but also very ugly, in my opinion.

Bigger? No! Rather higher!
Better? Hell no!

^That's a very impressive picture!

Altough, it has a lot of gaps in the skyline But I still think it's the best in the EU (And no, not Rotterdam )

^I think that London/Paris/Rotterdam/Amsterdam/Frankfurt etc. etc. have 100m+ towers u/c
As far as I know, Rotterdam has the following u/c: 165m and 158m (and a lot of +/- 70m)

Wikipedia says about 69.000, so that's realy a low number of inhabitants.
In the summer it grows to 500.000 people, that's whay I call a lot of tourists.

A part of the Amsterdam skyline.

(Picture was taken from Amsterdam Schiphol airport. In the front you see a 'retro' 737, because of the celebration of 90 years KLM)

London has:

Heron Tower: 246m
Riverside South T1: 236m
Riverside South T2: 186m
Strata: 147m
Landmark T1: 140m
100 Middlesex Street: 105m
Eagle House: 105m

And very soon The Shard and the Pinnacle (and hopefully Leadenhall)

Those 250m-230m towers really make the 100m+ towers look tiny and good thing they are couple miles far back, Madrid needs more 150m to 200m towers (the white tower is 157m).

The biggest European urbanistic project has been approved in Madrid this is the old project. We don't know if it will change, but at the moment the infractructure plans are maching this last render. The project has been on hold for 15 years. We dont know how the towers will look like, this is more of a volume representation. Its located next to the 4 towers and it also shows the cheese which is u/c now.







This is were the 300+ meter tower should go but has you can see it will be mostly 150m-200m structures.



This project will be very long and will take years for us to see the first towers, but it guarantes the space for a possible skyline and once finish it will be one of the tallest in europe with London Paris and Frankfurt.

Nice! I always thought they looked a bit lonely and in need of company. I hope it goes through.

A lot of European cities are actually going up but on a global scale they're not much to write home about.
I'm from Amsterdam myself and it seems like last spring someone sowed skyscraper seeds all over the city and now they're popping up all over the place like mushrooms on a foggy day.
Then I travelled to Singapore and my pride was shattered... Amsterdam and a skyline? Sure it looks cute, but its for minitrix fans. Same goes for Rotterdam, The Hague or even London and Paris. On a European scale they're way ahead of most other cities but globally its nothing important.
Seriously, half the world is building 500-800 meter tall buildings and we're still stuck with the 150+'es.
Really, I'm not trying to talk down on EU cities and I'm quite impressed with most of the developments are taking place, but be real. As long as they're not going for at least 250+'es I'm going to hold back my cheers for a while.
I blame the old ex-hippie society of today though. Everytime someone comes up with a dashing skyscraper plan someone yanks open a box of whiners and the plan gets cancelled. What we really need is vision and a drive for prestige. Scrap practical. Practical is cute and little, its just a different mindset and currently I guess people here just don't feel they need to prove themselves to the world. After all, all the supertalls are nothing but prestige projects. They're not at all neccesary.
Things will change in less than a few decades, I'm sure of that. I'm mighty interested as to how things will develop in the future. In the meantime, I won't feel any less about our cities over it, even though I am a great fan of supertalls and think every modern city should have some. But then again, I'm from a younger generation so I guess I'll have to wait a bit.
I'll just brag about high-speed trains and beautiful ancient cities such as Amsterdam and Venice and so on while we're waiting :P
I sure don't wish to go the way of the Chinese who are demolishing everything that is only remotely old to make way for more of the same glass.

honestly... singapore, hongkong, should not be an aim for europe.
it's good to have a nice skyline , but not a friggin stuffed-to-hell metropolis, that's not nice , but the happy medium is.
