That took quite a bit of reading. So it's not dead, but a long shot.

That's why I posted the link. It wasn't a simple "yes" or "no" answer, as you saw yourself.

Early planning has commenced on Sydney's next big urban renewal project - Central to Eveleigh. Central to Eveleigh is comprised of 100 hectares of rail corridor airspace, leading into downtown Sydney. The site is expected to reap more than 1.2 million square metres of floor space (that's more than double what is currently permitted at Barangaroo).

Here is a video of Central to Eveleigh (and a few other major projects across the state) from which the following screenshots were collected. If developed in this way, Sydney's skyline (south of the harbour) would extend for more than 5km. Note that the screenshots do not include the current crop of downtown urban renewal projects (Barangaroo, Central Park, Darling Harbour) that will help the skyline expand west.

The screenshots also do not allude to the developing skyline on the north side of the harbour - North Sydney, St Leonards and Chatswood are slowly expanding with 12 x 100m+ towers U/C, approved or proposed at the moment.

Here's a few screen caps.

Shenzhen 2014
Original image by 农民伯伯

I have made a (crude and rather inaccurate)future skyline render based on this picture too,I dont know if it is acceptable for me to post it and respect the copyright standard.
Let me know if it is unacceptable and I will take it down.

Shenzhen 2025

Onerob posted an article from the Guardian in the London Development Thread.

Currently as of today - There are 236 towers planned or U/C in London above 20 stories.

Tower Hamlets (Canary Wharf) will be homes to 23% of them (around 60 towers) to what's already there.

Shenzhen does look rather monotonous, but it's going to get much much better from now to 2025. If one looks at what's U/C and in the pipeline, Shenzhen won't look 'boring' for long.

I think Shenzhen is just huge, not the best .. Guangzhou, KL, Singapore etc have much better and compact skylines than Shenzhen.

Depending on where you're looking. Shenzhen is a huge city and has multiple core areas. Baishizhou and Qianhai are among the top places in Shenzhen to look out for by 2025. As of now, Shenzhen is nothing special. Guangzhou is far more attractive, Chongqing is far more dense...But Shenzhen will become something else by 2025

I believe Shenzhen will come out on top of all chinese skylines. It has the mountains and density of hong kong,the height of Shanghai and is currently in a construction boom whilst the other two are winding down and are settling for a more controlled pace of development. Shenzhen is projected to overtake both Shanghai and Hong kong in 200m+ skyscrapers in a few years(uc,prep) and has more megaprojects in the pipeline than any other city on earth. with over 15 million people It has the population size to sustain such a rapid pace of development.

Shenzhen is just ugly, no real start and end to the skyline just a big mess of some ugly apartment buildings with some nice taller ones. Guangzhou and Hong Kong are my favorite Chinese citys, i don't like Shanghai that much either.

If the Chicago spire gets built which it now might, Chi-town along with NY will definitely stay top 5, can't wait to see those cities.

Chicago will need the Spire just to stay in the top 10. I don't see a top 5 as realistic considering what's happening in Asian cities.
