I don't think everyone over looks Tokyo, but there's no denying that people prefer a strong focal point to a skyline. Tokyo is a sea of 50 - 250 m buildings scattered all over the place so it makes less of an impression than if it had fewer buildings but taller and concentrated in one area.

Shenzhen may have the largest skyline in the world by 2025. It might not have the density of Hong Kong or the architectural variety of New York, but will have the size and height (Shenzhen currently has 20 supertalls and around 50 skyscrapers U/C) to rival them. I won't be surprised if anybody says Shenzhen will have the best skyline by 2025-30

Architecture, layering, setting, quality? Those things matter a great deal, but it's what separates a Panama City from a Singapore.
Say London and he'll be happy.

There will be the Shenwan Station towers, with 6 supertalls (one of them 680m and one 580m) next to each other and behind them there will be Baishizhou Redevelopment with 4 supertalls (one of them 500m+) the Future City Project with 700m-800m and a possible second supertall will be behind Baishizhou. That could be pretty dense

(Baishizhou will be between Shenwan Station towers and Future City tower as far as I know)
Shenwan Station towers fanmade concept rendering:

Screenshots of a video which is showing the design of Baishizhou Redevelopment (by z0rg):

There are only existing a concept rendering for Future City Project.

This Panorama is breathtaking but , it cannot compete with the Chinese monsters and with NY for the best skyline in 2025 , it's just too spread out and too horizontal to beat the others ...

Ps: I'm one the biggest lovers of Tokyo's Urban Model , but I don't think that Tokyo would be able to fight The chinese cities in this field , although Tokyo beats them all when it comes to cleanliness at street level !

The air pollution in chinese cities is generally quite disgusting , if we compare tokyo with any chinese city in terms of pollution , the Japanese capital wins hand down ....
That was for air and water cleanliness ...

For Cleanless of buildings and at street level , you have to know that Tokyo is quite older than Shenzen , Shenzen is a new megacity , we have to wait for decades to judge really how is this city at street level , how it would manage it's infrastructures and it's old buildings ...

Yes, thank you! Cleanest City and Less Air-Polluted City would be another thread.

I also added these proposals that will be U/C soon or have a good chance of being built: Holt Renfrew Tower, 37 Yorkville A & B, 10 York, The Icon, 88 Scott, Casa 3 and E Condos South.

And the render:

This should be enough to keep Toronto in the game for the next 3-4 years. Hopefully the other 118 proposals (not depicted here) 100m+ or taller will happen as well. Judging by what's happening in Asia, we'll need every last one.

Since this was made there have been quite a few new proposals like the massive One Yonge multi-tower proposal.
