Some people say it's ugly, full of glass buildings or commie blocks. They have problems about everything in Shenzhen. Ignorance at its best. You want to see full skyline of Shenzhen

This is a 2 year old picture btw. A lot has changed since then

This thread is about 2025, not present. You can guess how it will look by then...people should not degrade foreign cities because of them bigoted personal opinion/superiority complex

Legislation is the biggest problem I think. But I believe that Brazil is able to build many Superttals.

So do I. There always seems to be a lot of animosity towards the new kid on the block. The incumbents don't like having to share the spot light; they dislike getting passed even more.

Over the next 5-10 years I suspect Shenzhen will get lots of doubters and mud thrown its way regardless of what they build. I'd put Toronto in that camp as well. At least in Toronto's case people are slowly coming around and acknowledging that it's a city in ascendency.

Toronto in 2017? Most of these are already under construction or imminent.

I renewed my passport yesterday, so that's another step toward making my trip. When that comes in the mail, it will just be a matter of buying plane tickets.
