Compared to NY it's growing slowly but the next boom should keep Chi-town in the top ten, I don't think Toronto will ever pass it in the near future. They have four potential supertalls (to roof) with a decent number of 2-250+m projects in the works. That's pretty significant if you ask me

They aren't?

Just kidding... kinda, but in all seriousness the reason there are so many Chinese or US cities in this thread is because they are the best.

While I think skylines like Singapore and Bangkok or KL are nice they are overrepresented in this thread. I guess it's not a huge deal, whatever floats your boat.

Top skylines in 2025

1. New York City (25+ supertalls; history, diversity and density second to none)
2. Shenzhen (25+ supertalls, 100+ skyscrapers; huge mass of buildings but lacking density, CBDs are a little bit apart and there are still many "shitty" urban villages around)
3. Dubai (35+ supertalls; the king of supertalls but lacking density and the pure mass of highrise buildings found in the megacities above)
4. Shanghai (absolutely massive city with probably the highest number of bildings in the world. Many new projects on the way but a lack of supertalls)
5. Kuala Lumpur (2 megatalls and many new supertalls on the way, highly concentrated, dense CBD - like Singapore in big)
6. Mumbai (growing like crazy with countless skyscraper and supertall projects on the way; financial capital and by far most advanced city in India; will be very dense because the main CBD is on a peninsula with limited space - biggest skyline winner, right now not in the top 10)
7. Hong Kong (huge number of highrises and beautiful natural setting but totally lost its momentum in skyscraper and supertall construction - the biggest skyline looser for the next decade, right now I would put HK on 3)
8. Chongqing (a little bit of a risky bet given all the hight cuts and cancelled projects of the past but: many supertall and skyscraper projects on the way, extremely dense due to the landscape and its space limitations, hugely growing urban population and economy)
9. Guangzhou (already great skyline, huge number of new projects in the pipeline, new CBDs will greatly expand the skyline, has the population, economy and political importance to coninue its growth trajectory)
10. Toronto (very big skyline, vast amount of new projects including supertalls, financial capital of Canada with very stable growth perspective)
11. Chicago (huge, diverse skyline with a rich history but lacking the mass of new projects; will continue to grow slowly but other cities are simply growing much faster)
12. Melbourne ("Toronto of Australia" with a huge amount of projects; could overtake Chicago after 2025 if it remains on its growth trajectory)
13. Jakarta (massive number of projects and a high long-term growth potential as the primary city of the rapidly growing country of Indonesia; nevertheless will still lack density and quality in 2025 but could climb up the list)
14. Manila (like Jakarta just a little bit smaller)
15. Tokyo (largest city in the world with a huge mass of buildings but lacking supertalls and only a limited number of skyscrapers; will probably fall down further due to Japans shrinking population and stagnant economy)
I was going to add my 2 cents but this list is almost identical to what I would have wrote. I'm especially interested in what's happening in Melbourne. It's coming on like gangbusters and could be precisely where you put it if they continue on their current path. Mumbai is destined to be a top 3 but your ranking of #6 looks good for 2025. Kuala Lumpur amazes me. It's not in a particularly big country nor is KL all that big itself (5 million?) yet it keeps proposing and building massive skyscrapers in quantity.

That's very sweet of you to say. Pressing matters needed tending to. I'm hoping things will return to normal soon.

It's just my impression or let's say a kind of a feeling that the skylines of Jakarta and Metro Manila (especially Makati of course) look quite similar. The number of projects is also relatively similar, with Jakarta having more and bigger projects in the pipeline. For the future potential, both megacities are the primary cities of their respective countries and both are growing rapidly in GDP as well as in population - here again Indonesia is bigger than the Phillipines of course.

Makes sense.. i just got curious when you mentioned that Manila skyline is smaller than Jakarta's

i find it debatable.. but no big deal! really. It's all good.
It's only a matter of time any way.. that Jakarta will be one of the world's biggest skylines.

You mean when Canadians use the moniker 'Centre of the Universe' in reference to Toronto they're actually making fun of us?

Behold, the Supertall-Filled New York City Skyline of 2030



http://ny.curbed.com/uploads/NYC-sky...0-labeled2.php


Cute mockup but it omits the many skyscrapers that are now and will be filling in the skyline.

IMHO I would say Chicago is the biggest skyscraper loser. Hong Kong has a lot of 100-200m projects right now and two +200m landmark projects U/C. The two projects are on the Kowloon side and while they might not be "super" tall they will have a huge impact on the skyline. Chicago has some projects but they will have little impact in the skyline when completed due to their location being mostly obscured by neighbouring buildings.

One of the projects is New World Centre | 265m | 63 fl | U/C . It might be a smaller building but it still brings a huge change to the skyline.

Not true your statement about Chicago:
