This is only for the small Paris city proper, so la Defense is not include.
There is also quite many over 90m in inner suburbs outside la Defense.

The position and overall look of the skyline must be more impressive then the heights.
Like Rotterdam. It doesn't have very high buildings, but it has a nice look

Rotterdam

Built (25 buildings)
Montevideo - 139.5
Delftse Poort - 151.3
Millenium - 149.1
The Red Apple - 127.1
World Port Center - 123.1
Erasmus Medisch Centrum - 114.3
Waterstadtoren - 108.8
Fortisbank Blaak - 106.9
Weenatoren - 106
Coopvaert - 104.8
Weena Center - 104
Hoge Heren I - 102
Hoge Heren II - 102
Schierlandtoren - 101
Oosterbaken - 99
Pegasustoren - 98
Toren op Zuid - 96.5
Hofport - 95
Europoint 2 - 95
Europoint 3 - 95
Europoint 4 - 95
Robeco - 95
World Trade Center - 93
Hoge Erasmus - 93
Wilhelminatoren - 90.4


U/C (3 buildings)
Maastoren - 165 (already reached 90)
New Orleans - 158.3
Hoogmonde - 90


Preparations (2 buildings)
Nieuwbouw Eramus Medisch Centrum - 125
100Hoog - 100


Planned/Vision (7 buildings)
Zalmhaven - 212
Baltimore - 173.3
Coolsingeltoren - 156
Havana - 153.6
De Rotterdam - 149.1
Boompjes 60-68 - 125
Up:town - +/- 100m


So Rotterdam actually has 26 buildings over 90m (including the Maastoren). In the future it will have 37 over 90m

PS: For Bussels I counted 17 buildings over 90m (using Skyscraperpage). So I don't know where the other 10 come from :S

I hope you got the point that Europe is not USA. What a senseless comment! And still the best cities to live in are not the ones with the iconic skylines but rather these tiny laughable cities like Frankfurt, Paris, London... But from your previous comments I get that you have a severe personality disorder with highly vulnerable moods. You should listen to your therapist and take your little pills...

No, your point was to provoke again as always. And your point is to provoke anti-American comments. But you won't see them here. Everyone knows that EU isn't famous for it's skylines. But also everyone knows that EU is famous for it's high quality of life!

a totally misapplied differential psychology dude. just an opinion, without ulterior motives.

Neither nor. I am pretty laid-back. But you seem to be the typical troll who lives nowhere, has no nationality, no friends and no home forum and go out to every thread to bash others. This is ridiculous. Ask your psychiatrist for some Prozac!
