Well, if talk about the CBD or cluster,i think Lujiazui is little big than LM,but not dense.

Also loads of buildings in that LJZ shot above need to be 'raised' up, only a select few have been made 3D^.

But yeah, was gonna say the Lujiazui area of Pudong (in red below) is already half the size of Manhattan - 32 sq km vs 59.1 sq km, and only slightly
less dense overall (22,000 per sq km vs 26,000 per sq km).




but yeah, quite low density for Shanghai (it's still terraforming basically), especially in comparison to the Puxi half on the opposite side of the river, where the skyscrapers and people really are.
One always sees Pudong as representing Shanghai's skyline, but it's a pindrop in comparison.

The Puxi side - much more highrise, dense, and historic, should be representative more of SH:

Better (but not necessarily bigger) than SH imo are Guangzhou



For comparison, the rounded fin-shaped building at right is a supertall:



...and Shenzhen

Way less dense, just walking by the Shanghai Tower it feels like in some high-rise low density residential area in the medium part of any city. Only in the roundabout that has the elevated pedestrian corridor it feels really dense of people, but not of buildings. Lower Manhattan has more narrow and a bit labyrinthine streets, and very old buildings very close to each other. This part of Shanghai looks really cool, but from inside it doesn't feel quite urban, I hope as the years pass by this will change.

Not just that, Guangzhou and Shenzhen are part of The Pearl River Delta region which can form a mega skyline along with HK, and Macao!
