At first glance, I thought it was just two photos taken from the same place two seconds apart.

SP is so massive I don't think there is really any vantage point from which to really grasp its skyline

pic #3297 is Jalan Sudirman or Sudirman Street, one of dozens CBD in Jakarta. yes, here's sea of cranes. you can visit Jakarta threads to see property booming in Jakarta. fyi, same as capital cities of developing countries, Jakarta's CBD spread out in so many locations. here's big different with your city San Fransisco or other cities in US that clustered in one CBD. so, you can't see a sea of cranes in one picture

This is actually really prophetic of things to come. It's a wonderful sunset but it shows the immense wall of steel all the 'talls will produce and completely overshadow the smaller buildings.

Shenzhen is going full Coruscant.

Shenzhen really is currently in the top 3 and will rank up by 2025 for sure. Look at this stunning pictures by 浪迹一生! You can see Houhai area in Nanshan, and then Futian CBD and Luohu.

I used to accept one by one supertall eclipsed the Petronas twins eversince like Burj Khalifah, Taipei 101 or Shanghai Tower over the years...

But THIS time around, the twin queens will have to face rivals in its own ground... Beyond my wildest dream before, that this supertall race will taking place in Kuala Lumpur...

Credit to nazrey, yet still there are about 8 more supertalls arent in the list


KL

Well SF (the metro area) has multiple CBDs as well, as do a lot of other US cities. There's the biggest one in downtown San Francisco, the smaller "big ones" in Oakland and San Jose, and some small suburban CBDs, like San Mateo, Berkeley, and Palo Alto. Though most american CBDs do seem to be smaller and/or more concentrated than cities in many other parts of the world. An American CBD/highrise zone will usually be in a relatively small area surrounded by low rises, instead of spread out over a massive area.

The huge difference in the number of highrise buildings between Kuala Lumpur and an American city like San Francisco, has to do with differences in zoning/regulations, as well as land and construction costs.
