Image from the Nordstrom Tower thread showing projects on 57th Street (plus 1 Vanderbilt) in NYC. Keep in mind this omits all of Hudson Yards. If all rise as planning, the Manhattan skyline will see quite a transformation in coming years.

Cebu City, Philippines is something to look forward to a decade and a year from now.

Nice New York list, but including antennae skews things considerably. For me WTC is a 417m tower with a 124m stick attached to its roof. Likewise, most people count First Canadian Place in Toronto as a 298m tower rather than a 355m super tall (height including antennae).

It's just the same picture I posted 2 pages back with that tall building being Grollo Tower. A proposal many many years ago that fell through. Wont be built. I'm pretty sure the forumer who put it in there did so just for comparison's sake.

With all that plus Brooklyn, Long Island City, Jersey City and Lower Manhattan (which outside the WTC isn't really all that visible in that rendering), all bulking up I just don't see any city on earth keeping pace.

The New York area is undergoing an amazing construction boom, but I wouldn't count out Asian cities quite yet. Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Shanghai are the most noticeable rivals, but 15 years down the road I'd expect Mumbai and perhaps Jakarta to have entered the fray. These are principal cities in big big countries and they're all very early on in their maturation. And then there's Dubai. It's still a skyline that lacks cohesion, but I sense it is starting to come together.

In 2025 I see New York in 1st, but only barely ahead of Shenzhen:

01. New York
02. Shenzhen
03. Shanghai
04. Hong Kong
05. Mumbai
06. Jakarta


7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th will be a dogfight between about 10 cities: Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Singapore, Tokyo, Chicago, Toronto, Bangkok, and Dubai.

I would perhaps replace Hong Kong with Guangzhou. While Hong Kong is still king, they are not building anything exciting now or soon. Might jut be the right timing for Guangzhou and other emerging metropolises to overtake the golden egg.

Surprisingly KL also has few supertalls in making, seems that either Jakarta or KL in that 6th place

Quite right. Guangzhou will almost certainly be in my top 10 and could unseat Hong Kong. 10 years is a long time though; so much can change.

It will be hard to beat Manhattan if all those towers do come into fruition!

For me, 200m is the benchmark for when I start viewing a building as tall. Having 50+ such buildings is the benchmark for when I start viewing a skyline as massive. There aren't too many cities in the world that have 50 or more. I'm hoping Toronto can get there before the decade is out.

I agree, having 50 200m+ towers is the elite league. So far, only New York, Hong Kong and Dubai can claim that. Shanghai is very close. Shenzhen's number will go trough the roof once all those projects get finished. It will be the first city to have 100 towers over 200m.
