The ones in the city centre are being renovated if not replaced with much newer replacements. Such as Natwest OFFICE block which is being replaced by British Lands 165m Colmore Row to name but one.

Birmingham has a great topography. It sits on a limestone ridge within a historic forest. Some nasty buildings survive on the city but they are majorly outnumbered by new developments.

It is also the only city in the UK outside London to have a 200m proposal. Not one BUT TWO. The 4 white blocks you see in these pictures are actually part of a major mixed use development which have shown a tower plus 150m.
I┤m sure that Birmingham can look great at street level, and with a few new towers in the 100-200 range the skyline will look much better. However, looking at the panoramas you posted I struggle to see the greatness of Birmingham┤s skyline.

Don't take Leeds in a bad way just because you don't like him, Leeds isn't a bad city, and doesn't have a bad skyline (although not the best IMO). Just so you don't start having a negative view on Leeds because of one person.

It isn't great, but it's one of the better skylines in the poll.

Personally, I don't see anything in The Hague to suggest that it should have almost double the amount of votes of any other city. Amsterdam looks better from the pictures I've seen and that's not even in the list.

Paris:


Lyon:


Nantes:


and now Marseille (the benjamin of the family ) :

liverpool its skyline is next to wasteland lol
That wasteland you speak of was where the Worlds biggest cruise liner the Queen Mary 2 was berthed this week and the very same spot that five thousand people queued on Sunday to board HMS Illustrious,people had to be turned away,some wasteland.It's also going to be the site of the 5.5 Billion pound Liverpool Waters development in years to come,if that's a wasteland then I'm glad it's ours.

Parces: Not to forget about Le Havre


Regarding Marseille: Sad to see how they ****ed up a once beautiful city. Those commie-like concrete boxes everywhere...

Brussels, very underrated:

17 X 100-150m
3 X 90-100m
11 X 80-90m

And more to come, including the 142m high premium tower.

You have to upload it to an image hosting website like photobucket first.
