The air was a bit clear and surprisingly we can see the skyline from Central Park to SCBD.

Are 108,000 inhabitants and ~515,000 in metro area (Winter, Spring and Autunm), but in summer around 1 million tourists mainly from Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and others parts of Brazil arrive in the city.

Currently, the city stands out for the construction of some of the tallest buildings in Brazil.

Yeah, that's it. I saw it about 6 months ago on here, and I think you used an exact pic that I had seen before. Thanks!

yeah, Fortaleza and Recife has some stunning buildings. It wouldn't hurt if they were all 10 stories taller though... but I can imagine the living quality must be good there in both cities. At least if you have some money

Jakarta

Jakarta still lacks of density. But quality and height of the buildings are quite good. With rapid expansion (more than 200 on going highrise projects), the city's skyline will look much better in the near future.

Not exactly Jakarta or the Gold Coast


But here's Harare, Zimbabwe. Not too bad considering Zimbabwe's current condition.

Jakarta is massive. Definitely one of the best skylines of the southern hemisphere.

Jarkarta's skyline is one to watch over the next 10 years. It could rocket all the way into the top 10 globally.

True, but as of right now it is not that impressive. It deffinately will be though. After all, isn't the population nearly 30 million there now?

Yes something like that. I'd be surprised if Jakarta didn't become one of the world's great skyscraper cities one day.
