I had to Google 'Noida'. So is that a quickly growing area on the outskirts of New Delhi?

Yes. A few supertalls have been proposed there. More than a dozen skyscrapers. And a lot of highrises.

I'm going to come out and say it. The New York Times Tower is the most BS supertall in the history of supertalls. Isn't it literally 746' to the roof, with a 300' thin stick spire that somehow counts? In fact, when you truly think about, 4 out of the 5 buildings listed here cheat to break 300m/1000'. At least Chrysler is a legitimate continuation of the design. Then you get a building like BOA, which is considered taller than the John Hancock in Chicago despite actually being 200' shorter to the roof, and 300' shorter to the tip.

At least the new supertalls are legitimate. They way I see it with these stick spires, is if you put them on the ground it wouldn't be called a building, so why should it count towards the height when you stick it on top? It would be like raising your hand and measuring yourself to the top of your fingertip. "Oh I'm over 7 feet tall now" uhhhhhhhh, no.

After 12 years, Shenzhen will definitely have the biggest and tallest skyline in the world (based on average height). It's already enormous

This photo is 2 years old btw. Just imagine how Shenzhen will look after a decade :O

I love Shenzhens skyline but as with all Chinese cities they are building cracking towers amongst so much dross.

For every decent tower there are 3 or 4 absolutely shocking constructions which wouldn't even be considered by many planning councils in the Western World.

Magnitude "YES" - beyond the shit "YES" - with the shit "MEDIOCRE"

From the top of Shanghai Tower - It's amazing the differences of scale and wealth in such close proximity that's why the likes of NYC, Toronto, Chicago, Hong Kong and in the future London, Miami etc will have an advantage over these generic skylines.

I know what you mean, the NYTT really shouldn't be counted. Chrysler and BofA are ok. Btw there a lot of cheaters out ther, f.e. the Shimao International Plaza in Shanghai: 246m roof / 333m antenna. This building counts as a supertall too.

China is a third world country, not curious of that.
But if you contract pudong area of 2013 with that of 1997, you will be amazed by the change.

I have to remind everyone that imo, the probable top10 skylines on 2025 will mainly come from ASIA, with only 3 from the west (being nyc, toronto and chicago).

That's all.

You have to remind everyone of your opinion? Why is that? And no one says Pudong hasnt changed. Many nice buildings have been built there in the past 15 years. That doesnt change the fact that an even larger amount of low quality housing projects has been built there too, detracting from the appearance of the skyline.
