SKYLINE RANKING




This listing ranks cities by the visual impact of their skylines. It is drawn entirely from statistics in this website’s database, and reflects only completed high-rise buildings as defined by the Emporis Standards Committee (ESC). This calculation does not include TV towers, masts, bridges, or other structures. About the formula: Each building is assigned points based on its floor count. The point total for each city is calculated automatically and displayed.
