The vast majority of the buildings u/c in those pictures are apartments, but there is also the odd hotel, community center, school, or office space mixed in... and ground level retail/restaurants/galleries etc of course.

Many of the already built buildings in those pictures are apartments.
wow impressive....the copenhagen one is nice, but i got one question...is that the skyline of the city? is there a central city/downtown? seems very spread out...but with many cranes...:)
Was up in Dublin today. A shitload of cranes around the city, especially around the train station.
And the best from Spain, Murcia (2006)
I counted 61 tower cranes

The panorama is taken from the green area in the middle (Amagaer Fælled):

...that's why it looks so spread out. The panora picture btw starts in a south-western direction and then goes almost 360 around.

The first picture is from the district called Ørestad just around the green "E20" sign.
The second picture is around the area close to "Kalvebod Brygge".

The inner city is the old city within the old city defence where it says "København"

The pictures from Spain are btw really impressive!
