User "Doctorboffin" over on SkyScraperPage put together a great map of the current development in Los Angeles. About half of these future buildings are under construction, and half are proposed. So while they may not all be built, it's a pretty good bet that the clear majority will be. And one quick caveat, I believe these are all just the massing of the buildings which is why they are all blocks. The designs of the various buildings will look very different. Anyways this is what the Los Angeles skyline could look like by 2025:











Here is the original post on SSP, addition renders over there

With a little luck we'll get some more proposals down the line, and someday they'll fill in the entire downtown freeway ring. Again h/t "Doctorboffin" for his great work

Latest Kuala Lumpur scale model as of Mar 02 2017. Clear blocks are approved proposals. Solid whites are under construction. Some proposals are still missing and heights are generally proportional to scale.

Best Skylines by 2025

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.


Macau and Zhuhai also have a considerable number of skyscrapers. Shown here is a map of Shizimen strait and Hengqin peninsula from gaoloumi. At least 7 supertalls built, u/c or under prep can be seen(A1-D4). Not counting the other areas of Zhuhai and Macau

I love the idea of the future world but the only think i can see being remotely plausible would be the individual pod system which would then feed into a hyperloop styled train system. Everything else just smacks of being too expensive. Infrastructure changes needed to get to where we would like to be would need to jump a few evolutionary steps, not to mention the revolutionary changes needed. Other than that i love the idea of the future SciFi world possibilities.

Congratulations Edmonton. It will be the tallest building in Canada outside of Toronto. Is there a rendering of the Edmonton skyline with Alldritt, Stantec, and JW Marriott?

Someone would have to photoshop those towers into the skyline pic.

All cities depend on a massive quantity of goods brought in daily to sustain them. In that sense, no city is self sustaining.

Which ones specifically? Cities in the desert seem impractical but the costliest places to build skyscrapers are rich western nations. Building a 200m tower in Jakarta or Dubai is far cheaper than it would cost in Melbourne or Paris.

It's the same whether they build it in Jakarta or Paris.
It's just that they are valued differently because of currency exchange.
If constructing a skyscaper in Paris needs certain amount of labour hour and materials, then the same amount is needed to build it in Jakarta. No more, no less.
