Miami has more buildings than Panama... Panama has taller buildings than Miami... big difference. Miami is a developed city while Panama city is a developing city...

Shenzhen, Tianjin and Guanghou have impressive skylines but
one thing the Chinese skyline lacks is beauty and creativity(except for shanghai). London skyline is small and does not rank the top 10, but it is more beautiful and well designed than most Chinese skylines. Same with that of Singapore. Nothing personal, just a neutral observation.

Shenzhen does not have an aesthetic skyline yet, it still needs to beautify its highrises in my opinion, lots of concrete commie blocks scattered around. There are two facts that makes skylines look good. Quantity+Quality.
Shenzhen lacks one, I think someone said that before. There's something still missing about the overall finishing of the buildings in Shenzhen. They lack the look that gives a building the desired quality and dark classy look. I think it may have to do with the type of glass they use or something, I don't know.

I'm actually happy that London has finally realized it has to become more modern in terms of cityscape and build more tall buildings. But just because it's a globally renowned city, doesn't mean it has to have a great skyline. And it doesn't. None of us hates London here (it's a great city by every means), but it's not worthy enough to be part of skyline discussions. There are dozens of vastly superior skylines in the world than London.

As someone who has admittedly been less than impressed with Miami, this video has altered my perception a bit. It definitely has some nice buildings in there, and plenty of filler so it's quite massive, especially for US standards.

Watch the video full screen in HD for the best effect!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=jfnkRmIRucI

I could see it making a run at top 20. A lot can still happen in the next 12 years.

Awesome diagram! Very realistic render of future Shenzhen! It's Futian district if i'm not wrong? Shenzhen is going to be a giant in the skyline department within a 5-10 years from now

130 buildings+

Right now NYC has about 250 buildings exceeding 500 feet!
Thanks for this list. NYC in tradition, design and most importantly history will never be beaten in my eyes. It's a step in front of the rest and always will be.

London has grown 1000% since the year 2000. It had 2 towers above 150m in 2000, now it has 20 with another 29 (approved and planned) and a further 42 over 100m U/C and approved.

Yes, Shenzhen lacks creativity also. Almost all of the buildings are glass boxes with different patterns, and the rest, fugly residential buildings. I hardly think it will be the best skyline by 2025.

From 20 finished of towers in London can be no question.

Currently London has just 15 towers completed or TO. The other towers are merely in preparation (ground work).

Really? Have you taken a stroll through any of my photo threads? And I think there are videos that show the city better than that.

Well we don't talk about the present here, we talk about 2025. Right now you are right, there are much boring boxes in Shenzhen especially in Futian District. But Shenzhen's skyline will transform dramatically. In our boxy example, the Futian CBD, there will be much crative designs, for example: SZ stock exchange building and the skyscrapers arround it, Ping An IFC, Gamdale Ganxia Tower...And there are much more development areas in Shenzhen, for example Qianhai. I count at least arround 10 masterplans with supertalls in Shenzhen and there are only one with a boring design. In my video you can count 15 boxy supertall projects, 10 supertall projects without a design yet, and 66 supertall projects in total. And I am only talking about supertall projects here, there are much more 200 m+ towers with creative designs too.

Not really it is one week old. A new 380m project appeared and the Tianji International Plaza got a high increase to 395m. And Galaxy project got a new design.

I respond more to dynamic/moving views, where you can see a skyline's depth as you change angles and the previously hidden buildings make their appearances. For instance, a few years ago my dad would always watch NCIS and the Miami skyline at the beginning of the show always impressed me. I like this video because it makes the city feel alive and like you are part of it. It also helps me better understand the scale of the buildings there.

I have seen a million pics of Miami and they really don't do anything for me.
