You mean to say that 10 Hudson Yards is getting companions?

Well, well, that's going to add a lot of somethings to the skyline.

In terms of pure grandure and scale, New York has gone completely off the deep end in terms of building up.

In terms of what "looks" the best.... beauty is all in the eyes of the beholder. But some Dubai, Miami, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Washington D.C., Gold Coast are a few of my favorites in terms of asthetics

Shenzhen will have 212 buildings of 200m+ (more than double NYC's for example) by then, and 17 supertalls

Thanks to Tower Verre (and this would only be a fraction of the skyline)




^On top of all that Shenzhen is conjoined to Guangzhou, with a similar sized skyline

Then, being 2025 or another date? I only see roughly 120 for both; where's a more complete list?

This is a list from last year of the 200m+ buildings in Shenzhen by 2020, divided into currently completed (60 buildings), u/c (57) and prep (78). Total 195:

completed/ topped out:




under construction:




prep:





According to Gaoloumi this year, it's now:

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

*^the 518m one in the prep section is recently on hold though.

Thanks.

*I thought about Gaoloumi, but I've had bad luck accessing the site, lately. It can take quite long to load (maybe I should try a vpn?).

It's a two hour drive from Guangzhou to Shenzhen. They are nearby, but Shenzhen doesn't border Guangzhou (you have to drive through gritty, industrial Dongguan).

^yep, they're still part of the contiguous city though, ever since an arm of Shenzhen coursed up the estuary and linked with Dongguan (check it out on Google Earth). As of 2015 Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen officially became the world's biggest city, with 41 million people (metro 55 million). It's the biggest single urban mass - not to be confused with a megalopolis.


Jiangmen, Zhongshan, Hong Kong etc aren't counted because there are small gaps:

Thus in terms of 200m+, the Pearl River City will have

Shenzhen 211 (inc 23 supertalls built and u/c only)
Guangzhou-Foshan (no idea about prep work, but counting built and u/c only) 44 inc 12 supertalls
Dongguan (as above) 8 including 1 supertall


Thus the tally for the whole city by 2021 will be at least: 263 buildings over 200m, inc 36 supertalls.

It will also happen to be adjacent to Hong Kong, a city of 70 buildings over 200m inc 6 supertalls. In other words, head to the area if you like skyscrapers.

You are trying to mislead and make it seem as if Shenzhen Dongguan and Guangzhou are one city, while they are not. The three cities are also divided by greenery, rivers, industrial areas and lowrise areas that are far from being hyper developed skyscraper filled forests. Furthermore Shenzhen and Kowloon are also seperated by a river and 20km of forests and hills.

^As I mentioned before Hong Kong is not counted due to the border and the gaps.

The other three however are - they are three cities that have conjoined. Thus they have three massive centres with all that you expect from a city - skyscrapers, highrises, plazas, highways, and shopping streets, but that 'dwindle' out into the highrise suburbs and industrial areas, but that are still just as dense and not anything like Western suburbs /exurbs. These latter areas are also conjoined - insofar that you can walk from one paved street onto another and have thus crossed from one city to another. Once again this is not a megalopolis of disparate cities, but fully conjoined cities into one. Rather like Osaka-Kobe-Kyoto (the Keihanshin).

This is why in 2015 the Pearl River City was recognised as a single urban entity, and officially became the world's largest city following the World Bank Report on urbanisation in that year:

https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2...ity-urban-area

Do check it out on Google Earth

overview of the three cities:



The border between Dongguan-Shenzhen




The border between Guanzhou-Dongguan (one of several merge points)




Zoom -this is not an exurb (notice the highrise developments casting shadows on either side of the river):

NYC 2025 - 666 Fifth Avenue by Zaha Hadid Architects. 426 M "restack" tower in the heart of midtown.



If plans go ahead, this 60 year old building will be partially taken down and then built on top of:
