The South American cities sure have density and look impressive - yes - but the actual skyscrapers themselves bar a very small few... are not impressive @ all...

I disagree, the Rio's skyline is very harmonic, although, indeed, does not have the greatest heights; , but a beautiful skyline is not composed only of very high buildings...

Jakarta is the city with most potential for sure,with over 40 buildings over 200m in under construction or preparations. Its the capital of a nation of over 250 million people with the fifth largest economy in asia. Greater jakarta is probably the second largest metropolitan area on earth and growing fast. All other nations(outside africa) in the southern hemisphere are already urbanized so the cities there arent projected to grow as dramaticly. western Java+Jakarta and Banten has a population of almost 70 million people and has a population density of almost 1500/km2 but this figure includes many sparsely populated volcanos and the much south coast which is more lightly populated . By un definition an urban area has to have a population density of 2000/km2 so its not unthinkable this might grow into a 100 million population megalopolis in the not too far future
