Melbourne has a ton of fantastic architecture going up right now and in the works. Eq, Lighthouse, Victoria One, Conservatory, 35 Spring, West Side Place, Queens Place and Premier in the CBD alone are all great.

When I see all these future skyline renderings, I cant help but thing that the undisputed #1 spot will be between New York City and Shenzhen. Everything else is just a tier below.

pretty much,Shenzhen and New york are more or less tied in terms of quantity with Shenzhen actually having the edge in terms of 200m+ skyscrapers(80 com or TO+63 uc which of 34 is above ground and 29 in various stages of ground works according to gaoloumi). Dubai is also up there in terms of quantity but the geographic elements of Shenzhen or New york are almost completely absent and the skyline looks much more incomplete than either Shenzhen or New York.

Is it likely Shenzhen will build a new tower as tall as PingAn FC? It seemed like the developer got into trouble for it being taller than what Chinese officials expected to be. Shenzhen has enough supertall and skyscraper projects down the pipe to remain a solid competitor for the Number 1 skyline spot, but will it get another icon out of the lot?

actually seems quite likely that we will get something as tall or taller than ping an,the fear was that the western parts of the city (Qianhai)and the like would have a height limit of around 150m or so but instead it seems to be around 350m judging by ongoing projects. According to this recent source the height limit problem above Qianhai has recently been resolved by the local authorities if translate is working correctly,it seems that any project approved previously to the new height limits in the Qianhai area are exempt
http://sztqb.sznews.com/html/2016-11...nt_3671731.htm
any chinese speakers that could translate better?
航空限高问题也实现破局。前海管理局已组织完成航空限高5项补充论证。民航中南局近日也对前湾妈湾片区8处超高建筑航空限高做出预批复,突破了前海此前的“天花板”限制。
Height limits on airline issues also broke. Harbour Authority has completed before height limits on air 5 supplementary arguments. Bureau of civil aviation in the South in recent days, the qianwan Mawan section 8 super high-rise building height limits on airlines to make reply, broke through the sea before the "ceiling" limits.

The easternmost part(Luohu district) is further from the airport than Futian district where ping an is located and the luohu local government is planning massive redevelopment projects,most notably a cluster development of a 740m+670m towers around Kingkey. many other towers planned arent that tall but have interesting designs that could make them landmarks in their own right.

I think Shenzhen will be double NYC, it already has more 200m+ towers, and has more u/c than NYC has already built:

Shenzhen:

Built and T/O: 68 (of which 8 are supertalls)
Under-construction: 66 (of which 9 are supertalls)
Prep: 78
Total: 212

NYC:

Built and T/O: 71 (of which 9 are supertalls)
Under-construction: 19 (of which 6 are supertalls)
Prep: 12
Total: 102


^Correct the stats if there are any discrepancies please

And there will be no end to this boom in the next years, since there are 80+ more supertalls scheduled in the village redevelopment and CBD masterplans or proposed. Also countless 200m+ of course.

So the total number of completed, U/C, and prep buildings in New York of at least 200 meters tall, is about 102.

So 212 for Shenzhen and 102 for NYC. They're both way out in front but Shenzhen being double New York is quite something.

Manchester, UK

Not quite Shenzen or New York City, but the development of a skyline in Manchester is beginning to pick up pace. Credit to VDB for the model, I may have posted an earlier version of this previously but this is now more accurate and more likely to happen, as a number of the developments are at demolition / groundworks / construction stage

So with news this week that Manchester will be getting a new tallest building (which will be taller than the 'tallest building' we're already building ) I decided it was time to update my future skyline model.

My Sketchup skills are not as good as ThreeFour34's - nope, not even close. So my model for Trinity Islands is mediocre at best - treat this as a massing model (although ThreeFour34's model for Owen St is spot on).

I made the windows in MS Paint Also haven't put the bridges on because I sincerely believe they will not happen (the white building to the left is supposed to be Water St and the Brown one on the right is supposed to be Wilburn)







There may not be much in it between this and Owen St, but as expected Trinity 1 absolutely DOMINATES from the Salford side of the city

Ordsall will really feel like part of the city centre with this looming over:






Coming in from Regent Road will be just as exciting - if not more exciting - than coming into town via White City in future (I've managed to frame Beetham here)






One thing that struck me is how THIN this will appear from some angles - see here from White City:







The River Irwell will look like a canyon created by God himself







Further out, it becomes plainly obvious that Manchester is now a two peak city - two skyscraper clusters, and two tall skyscrapers 'peaking'.







Owen St still dominates from Brooks Bar:







Two-peak city from Whalley Range

Apologies for the post size, but it gives a very good overall idea of what Manchester will hopefully look like by 2025 (possibly earlier)

The crazy thing about those renders is, that most what is depicted is already UC or some of it even built already. No farstretched renders, but everything that will be reality in around 3 years time. Crazy stuff going on in the big apple.

That would bring the total of Supertalls, alone, up from 7, today, to almost 30. Not to mention all the projects on the Lower East Side, LIC, Brooklyn, FiDi, and along the Brooklyn/Queens Waterfront.
