Those were the 2 that jumped out at me as well. What strikes me about these 2025 lists is the dominance of Asian skylines. 50 years ago it was north American skylines that towered over the rest. Now it looks like NA will be relegated to just 3 legitimate contenders. It would be nice if SF, Miami, and MC could get into the mix by 2025 but it might be a bit much to ask.

Considering Asia's population it's expected... North America is lucky though to be both more developed and the only other continent with skylines that rival Asia's. I don't think I will ever love any Asian skyline more than NY or Chicago or maybe even Toronto. Of course I'm biased, and some of them are insanely cool but NA skylines are just too classic.

I was wondering about Singapore. I know there are proposals but do you think it will be enough to stay in that lead pack? Just looking around at the main skylines in SE Asia and they all seem to have a lot more coming down the pipe than Singapore.

Agree. As Asia developed it was inevitable that their skylines came to dominate, being home to such a massive population. North American skylines have a built in advantage due to having a 70 year head start on almost everyone else. That said, as the decades pass that advantage will diminish as newer skylines develop layering by era.

50 years from now, for instance, a skyline like Guangzhou will have tall buildings from 7 different decades (if it continues to build over that time period). North American skylines will still have an advantage but it won't be as large of an advantage compared to the 'upstarts' of today. New York, Chicago, Toronto, etc. are wise not to rest on their laurels and continue producing best in class towers.

Kuala Lumpur seems like it would easily overshadow Singapore- if all of its proposals are built.

Agree. Jakarta is another in SE Asia that will do the same if theirs get built.

Probably because singapore do have height limitation so its abit hard to wow with supertalls.

Even though singapore is progressing well with few projects under construction in downtownbut seems that KL will have better chance in 2025. Maybe singapore will hope to have a beautiful compact skyline rather than massive skyline

If theres a hope then it would be a supertall. Currently 290m u/c halfway done.

KL has the basic ingredients to make it to the top.
What it needs most right now is density IMO.

I would probably replace Singapore with Tokyo on second thought.

This source says Shenzhen has 110 skyscrapers under construction with a height of 200 m (650 ft) or more. This quantity would be very hard to beat by any other city imo.

Definitely an honorable mention.

Any way you slice it, there are going to be some terrific skylines that won't make a top 10 in 2025. It's going to be very tough list to crack.

major constraint of Singapore was limited land space. not enough space...
other SEA cities will surpass Singapore city in next 5-10 years.

The only way to expand in singapore is toward land reclamation. Currently there are spaces but not big enough to compete with Other Asean cities. Only way is to build quality building withhout neglecting the harmony of skyline
