It also has a skyscraper culture - unlike a city like Paris/London where people may not care as much for tall buildings.

I think a serious contestors may be Mumbai given its growth in the next decade. Or another major
Shanghai has surprisingly little development. The Sinar Mas center has topped off which makes four supertalls to the roof and one megatall.

NY will have four times the amount of supertalls Shanghai does (at least) if they don't step up their game. I think SH will go the route of Hong Kong though and just build for demand since they are an alpha city and don't really need to show off like Guangzhou or Shenzhen or Suzhou (places people outside of China generally don't know exist)

It would be a good photo to depict what the skyline would look like with the other 133 (100m+) proposals currently tabled. Only the One Bloor proposal is shown there. It would be wall to wall skyscrapers for a good 4 km from Yorkville all the way south to the lake.

Here's another angle showing One Bloor and its proximity to the lake:

That view does remind me of Steve. Taller and I took him for a beer at a hotel roof top patio with similar sight lines. He really did seem so happy those few days he had here and could tell he was immediately smitten with the city.

I know this doesn't compare in any way to the other cities listed, but nonetheless, here is a new cluster forming in London.

It has and will be, Shenzhen was never built to be viewed from the sea.

This is the "gap" between Futian (Black building in the center) and Luohu (building taking up the right side of the shot). As per usual there is a mix of +200m and +300m U/C and Pro in the area.

How good Shenzhen's skyline looks definetly depents on the position of the viewer who looks at it (more then it is when you look at other skylines imo). It can look extremly epic and interesting, but also pretty boring and ugly in my opinion. Sometimes Shenzhen even looks better then Shanghai to me. That is, because from some perspectives the endless sea of in my opinion unattractive residental buildings block the view to most of the awesome office buildings in the cbds, but the impact of the residental buildings will reduce during the next few years, because of all the supertalls. What makes me worry about Shenzhens future skyline is the rumored hight limit of 600m.

Height doesn't mean anything. New York and Hong Kong both have no buildings over 500m and today considered universally either/or #1. 600m is plenty for Shenzhen to play around in. Guangzhou ATM has no building over 600m and in many peoples eyes ATM is better than Shenzhen. In addition the Luohu area probably can have a building over 600m.

Beijing will have a better collection of towers by 2025. And its skyline will be more condensed than Shenzhen.

Shenzhen's skyline is too big to leave out of my top 10 but is a classic case of size not being everything. It's very impressive in some shots and looks quite depressing in others. It should start coming together more as it fills in with better quality buildings but it's not 'there' yet. In 2025 I expect that it will have gelled.

Currently Guangzhou and Beijing are China's best looking cities imo.

The key is time which is what New York and Chicago have. Every era brings in more diversity. The "ugly" white concrete residential towers of 70-80s China will be blended in with the newer more colorful residential buildings of today.

Shenzhen looks to dominate by pure quantity,maybe its just me but I prefer the boxy more conservative style Shenzhen seems to have chosen
to the more unconventional architecture in Shanghai. Beijing is too small at present but I like what I see.
