Its good that Melb is getting new and dramatic skyscrapers like Eureka and Freshwater into the skyline...

The present one with Rialto, BlueScope, Melb Central, Bourke Place etc is getting a little drab and boring... Yeah, the buildings are well-designed but heck, they have been around (and are still among the tallest) since 1991! Changes are needed, man!

I come from Petaling Jaya in Malaysia (just outside KL) and the skyline changes many times within the year... For instance, a new 17-storey building that was not even in the piling stage in late 2003 was completed this year...

9.5/10 - Melbourne's skyline is absolutely incredible. It has a little futuristic, glassy kick to it. In its silhouette form it resembles Chicago. It's so well cut out. I can't understand why this skyline is rated so low on the list. It completely surpasses so many of the skylines ranked above it--should be in the top 15 in the world. Aussies do a great job with their skylines. Sydney and Perth are also really nice. This skyline just gets to me--it's dope!

As one can see, Eureka and Freshwater Place are growing and starting to make a good impact on the skyline.

Does Melbourne have communication problems? I don't get why so many buildings have these large oversized anthennas. One or two ok, but there's way too many. It looks messy. 6/10

In every picture of Melbourne you don't get the full story. It's like a jig-saw puzzle, you have to put the pieces together yourself.

How should I say this... I love Melbourne. Melbourne is cool. Melbourne is sexy. Melbourne is chic. If Melbourne were a girl I'd marry her. Melbourne is why I love Australia. 10.
