Here is a shot of Madrid with heigths. And the U/C highrises that will affect the skyline from this angle.

And Liverpool, with only two highrises in middle of a plane city, has a decent skyline? Why? Because the two highrises are reflected in the water? Please, one picture of all Liverpool, including the "skyline", but with the rest of the city. Valencia has more of 30 buildings taller than 16 floors, and 8 over 90 m. And Liverpool or Amsterdam?

Well, this is impressive, but I do not think that it will happen: The crisis represents a immense reduction in the demand for office space. This expansion was designed when the market was incredibly hot (and that as an unsustainable situation).

That may not occur with the dates given, but they will be built sooner or later,...

You're right but actually only one project was canceled...(GAN Tower, extension canceled, only refurbishment)...so wait and see...

Why bring Liverpool into it mate. I like the look of Valencia, yes it doesn't have super humongous skyscrapers but it does have good buildings with a pretty setting similar to Liverpool. We are lucky enough to have a waterfront setting but we boast some fine buildings. Two beautiful cathedrals, the three graces, a quality new museum, some decent new medium sizes skyscrapers, the radiocity tower, a sparkling new arena and conference centre sitting next to historic 18th century warehouses. Not all super tall or gleaming skyscrapers but quality buildings. Nobody is claiming Liverpool has the best skyline (i've voted Frankfurt) but give it some credit.

Now have a browse through this thread and you'll see some nice pictures.

Yes, Liverpool is pretty. But in Liverpool the buildings seems taller than reality, because around it the low rise is almost complete. In Valencia, for ex., around de taller buildings there are other buildings over 12-14 floors, and it seems smaller than reality.

Greetings.

Isn't a "best skyline" an aesthetic opinion by default? I don't think statistics and numbers really come in to play at all, if it looks good it looks good.

If this was a thread about impressive cities with dense urbanity Valencia would rank pretty high, but this being a thread about skylines.. not so much.
