NOTICE: This video showcases the top 50 of the world's best skylines. This list is an attempt to rank the impressiveness of city skylines. The score of a city is equal to the sum of all building heights (in m, without spires) after substraction of the minimum of 90m/295ft for each building. Freestanding towers (i.e. thin structures with no floors over most of their height) count for half their height.
It measures a mix of height and breath of a skyline which seems to be honest as they are both important for the WOW! factor. Of course, people may think differently about their favorite skylines
This years biggest surprise is Dubai is on #3, with Burj Dubai going up until it will reach a staggering 810 m. The Persian Gulf counries in general continue to boom, along with China and most the rest of asia, with too many cities to name. London and Moscow are are the strongest growers in Europe; Panama City in Latin America; Miami, Chicago and Las Vegas in the USA. The Freedom Tower in NYC finally began construction after a long delay.
