Tokyo has the scale, height, and quality but will have a hard time getting consideration as it lacks a focal point. I never know quite where to put it. Same goes for Dubai but for other reasons.

I think tokyo has the density not height. Quality cant be seen from far. The design of the buildings are less interesting due to monotonous color and shape. Night pic would be better

Perhaps, but Tokyo's skyscrapers are only marginally shorter than Singapore's. The tallest is 256m vs 290m and they have Sky Tree at 634m. Btw, I noticed a Fairmont under construction in KL. Is this hotel chain prevalent in SE Asia? I know Four Seasons is well established there but thought Fairmont were in Canada/US only.

Skytree too far apart from the skyline. Moreover it makes thhe skyline even more dwarf. However in future tokyo might build supertall cos they dont have height restriction. Only challenge to build that is earthquAke proof

Btw theres a fairnont and 4 seasons in sg if i remember correctly

I used to hear that Tokyo didn't build tall due to earthquakes yet Sky Tree went up. Maybe technology exists to make it safe enough but it's just very expensive to do so?

Good to know about Fairmont and Four Seasons. They're both Toronto firms so nice to see them doing well.

I also surprised they build the skytree. Its not possible to build a supertall, look at osaka having their supertall completed. Its just a matter of time


I think jakarta also has 4 seasons hotel. These hotel chain really good doesnt lose out to mariott or even better than starwood

Fairmont has been present in Manila (Makati district) (for almost 3 years?)
It's even got a Canadian flag

pictures are huge so just click on the links

and there are several others in South East Asia:

That one being built in KL is probably the biggest in SEA..

Good to see. Hopefully Fairmont and Four Seasons can both remain independent. Below is a fabulous model by SSC member, 'Steveve'. It shows a north-south section of downtown Toronto with Built, Under Construction, and a good proportion of Proposals in the pipe. The tall building in the middle with the skybridge is the newest proposal: 385 Yonge Street. It's a block down from the recently completed AURA, also on Yonge Street.

Toronto 2020? (There are 5 super tall buildings in this model.)



Both courtesy of Steveve

Toronto skyline always looked bigger when viewed from the west or east.. rather than the usual waterfront view.

It lost its 'corset' but it still looks quite alien:

And still many towers missing in that rendering like 50 HY (326m), 55 HY (238m), Tishman Tower (400m+) etc..

The Hudson Yards will be a city within a city.

Thanks for the info

Thank you Isaidso,
I keep wondering where exactly the Fairmont coming from as they got this super large KL's prime land exactly next to petronas. I thought it is some US brand. Really nice to know its Canadian.

No problem. It's the old Canadian Pacific Railroad hotel chain. They bought Fairmont and renamed the whole chain 'Fairmont'. It's usually seen as a benefit to strip your corporate brand name of any geographic marker when attempting to go global. Likewise, Toronto-Dominion Bank became 'TD Bank', Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing became '3M', and Hong Kong & Shanghai Banking Corp became HSBC, etc.
