Many people have already posted different renderings of different projects throughout their city at different points in the thread, particularly skyline-changing megaprojects like Miami World Center and Brickell CityCentre, so it's not exactly one rendering.

Oh so will miami world center or brickell citicentre change miami skyline to the worlds best? Only these two? And theres many cities in the planet with bigger projects than that.... Its not even comparable to the ones in chinese cities, istanbul,ny, manila, jakarta, etc. so if everyone started posting this then it will be more like a project thread..... Not future skylines thread

No, those were just two examples. That's why I said "like" those two. This thread will continue as it has been.

Same goes for Hong Kong, NYC, London, Tokyo, really any mega city with little developable land.

Shanghai should be the clear winner.

Shenzhen seems to be growing a lot faster than Shanghai. I'd put my money on Shenzhen in 2025.

Yes Shenzhen,Guangzhou and even Chonqing are building more projects and has more projects in the pipeline than Shanghai. I think that a chinese skyline would be the best in 2025 but i dont think Shanghai would be the one.

I think Chongqing will be stunning. By 2025 Chongqing Chaotianmen will be finished (definitely a top 5 project worldwide) and there should be more than 5 other supertalls, all in a hyperdense, organic Asian Manhattan. #1 aesthetically.

For total skyline size, either Shenzhen or Guangzhou, what's already in the pipeline is simply insane, and they will be competing hard for decades to come.

Chongqing Chaotianmen
Chongqing, China,
Located at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jailing rivers, the site for this mixed-use project is imbued with a significance that is immediately symbolic. The foremost of Chongqing’s traditional city gates (the Chaotian Gate, or “gate to heaven”), where emperors carried out the ceremonies of diplomatic greeting, it has long been a historical landmark. As the city’s initial dock area on the Yangtze, it also represents the great tradition of the shipping highway, which has stoked this major inland city’s development and now drives its evolution as one of China’s most important modern cities. The design for the project to be situated at this gateway is generated by the image of powerful sails upon the water. The outer facades of the project’s six towers—the transparent surfaces that will face the water to the north—are meant to recall a fleet of ancient Chinese ships, with their huge rectangles of white canvas filled by the wind. This image is recognizable in its simplicity, yet iconic in its form. In addition to serving as an outward-facing gateway symbol, the project also has a strong presence in forming the apex of the city’s peninsula. The south-facing facades—the inside of the arc of towers—look back to the city in a gently embracing way, covered by green hanging gardens that meet the ground at a podium roof level that is itself a green amphitheater “park” of gardens, pools, and public circulation. This park area gently rises to the north, framing views to the water between the towers—which will house residences, offices, and a hotel—and maximizing views of the project itself from the city. Underneath the park level, the podium consists of five levels of public program, including retail and cultural facilities, as well as hubs for land and water transportation. The two central outer towers, directly facing the rivers’ convergence to the north, are the project’s tallest structures (348 meters above flood plain; 77 floors each), with the central axis of the project proceeding back from between them, toward the city. Tucked immediately within the two tallest towers, extending the arc, are four shorter towers (each with 62 floors), across which runs an exterior, connecting garden that hovers 248 meters in the air. In addition to linking these four towers—two of which are office space (and actually “twin” stepped segments of the two larger, central towers), and two of which are residential—the garden echoes the amphitheater park far below and creates a dramatic viewing platform that optimizes this site’s unique views back to the rest of Chongqing. Within the garden level’s hull is a full floor of hotel lobby, restaurants, and clubs. Above are gardens and pools. The remaining two (freestanding) towers, which complete the prow-like arc of six, are residential, each 57 floors tall, making for a project total of 302,000 square meters of prime living units.
Project Type: Mixed Use
Client: CapitaLand Ltd / CapitaMalls Asia Ltd / Singbridge Holdings Pte. Ltd.
Size: 8800000

Chongqing has the best setting of the big Chinese skylines. It has the potential to be #1 one day even if it's not the biggest.

Yes, that is what I was thinking. Does this stand a good change of being built?

Chongqing needs to go through major cleaning and beautification. It looks like a mess. Guangzhou CBD is stunning and Shenzhen as a whole is one of the cleanest city on Earth. Chongqing is way behind in terms of cleanliness

Judging from photos that seems to be the case, but all Chinese cities look like they're improving significantly year over year. Chongqing will be no different. I'd rather have a dirty city with tons of potential than a clean one with less potential. Dirty can be fixed.
