I agree, but other cities are catching up, especially Shanghai and New York.

Interesting thread, but what are the criteria being used to determine which city makes the list?

Well, obviously Hong Kong, New York and Shanghai will still be the Top 3 skylines in 2015. If you asked about the best skyline in 2030 things might be different, but 2 years is simply not enough time to change a skyline significantly.

That being that there are a number of skylines that will change dramatically during the next years, f.e.:

Tianjin
Shenzhen
Mumbai
Seoul
Chongqing
Jakarta

Are there any cities right now beating NYC in the supertall category? If there are, they won't be for long.

1. Hong Kong
2. Shenzhen
3. Shanghai
4. Dubai
5. Chicago
6. New York
7. Singapore
8. Seoul
9. Panama City
10. Gold Coast

I'm expecting Shenzhen to take the top spot considering it has 30+ proposed/approved/under construction/completed supertalls at the moment

At the moment there are four cities with more completed/topped-out supertalls:
Dubai, Hongkong, Chicago and Guangzhou.

@Gudavalli
Yeah, Shenzhen is probably the only city with the potential to beat Dubai in terms of supertalls.
