The growing skyline of Manila.
Hopefully someone will create a future render of this aerial picture based on U/C and active proposals.

I'm also curious if by 2025 these 3 major CBDs would ever be connected as 1 skyline.

Is this all part of the same skyline in one city or is this like a Miami/Miami Beach/Sunny Isles Beach type of thing where we have three separate and distinct major skylines in the same county, but all in their own distinct, separate, and respective cities?

3 Different cities. Makati, Taguig and Mandaluyong.
But all are part of Metro Manila (National capital region - composed of 17 cities and municipalities.)

In some ways the same with Miami I guess..

Well just give it a try, it could be like this, not an aerial though... Massive but still needing some numbers of supertalls...

Perhaps you are in the wrong forum section.
This photo shows the amount of construction going on there to make it a top contender for the Best skylines by 2025.

^ You wrote ,guess the city?' in that post above so this forum section better suits that.

But anyway, this skyscraper boom in China is increadibly immense .

Yes, I think its only active construction until 2015... So it would be bigger skyline 10 years later (at 2025). At that we could already have supertalls hopefully...

The title is a misnomer. It should read 'World's Largest Skylines based on our Pts System'. 'Best' is subjective in nature. Likewise, this thread isn't necessarily about the largest skylines in 2025. It's about the 'best' skylines in 2025.

He doesn't quote a source, but it seems to be this one again.

Yes, I recognized it. I still wish they'd make the old lists from previous years available.

I couldn't resist tabulating the points growth for cities between 2012 and 2013.

I've only looked at the top 50 cities in 2013 so there may be cities further down the list that accumulated more points than some of the ones listed here. Suzhou is a good case in point. They're ranked #51, but accumulated 1086 points in the last year.

Shenzhen 2663
Shenyang 2542
Manila 2453
Wuxi 1839
Jakarta 1814
Wuhan 1638
Toronto 1461
Tianjin 1460
Kuala Lumpur 1454
Chongqing 1379

Dubai 1281
Chengdu 1225
New York 961
Hangzhou 876
Shanghai 876
Moscow 863
Qingdao 804
Istanbul 744
Tokyo 743
