London skyline has developed so fast and impressively in the last 20 years that could be a world contender in one or two decades... IF it continues developing this way. Hope Brexit doesn't pull the brake on it.

This is a definition of ugliness.

Those overtly bright neon lights are nothing great to talk about. Infact, its the most "un"american skyline wise. There is literally a neon "condom" tower in Doha, Qatar skyline like this.

Neon lines running down the supertalls like BoC tower, HK actually makes them look ugly and self-pitying. I puke everytime I need to look at these in the night. unnecessary overt brightess is not the answer.

All you need to do is look at NYC and Chi skyline in the night. subtle lighting, gives way to those nearby shadows and makes skyline look and feel taller than it actually is in the night. Natural lighting also makes for better viewing and reason why we absolutely love NYC skyline and those twin towers. Can you imagine ESB running these ugly, pathetic neon lines all the way down to the ground!. Yaaak.

Anything that isn't Hong Kong is wrong lol

NYC, Shanghai, Dubai, Chicago, Las Vegas etc.. can all be jumbled in the same tier after that

I love how crisp the edges of Chicago's buildings look at night! Look at Trump, John Hancock, Sears, 311 S Wacker, etc.
