Its true that they have better growth than Any other cities in the world with exception of china.

If you see Manila, Saigon, Jakarta, BKK, SG and KL 10 years ago, their skyline nowhere near San Fransisco

Saigon is not yet on the same category as Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Bangkok and Jakarta.

when you say dominating? you mean pictures? or discussion?
which neither was present except for just couple of pages ago...

Back read, and tell me if we are talking too much of South East Asia..


IMO - we never talk about them as much as they "deserve". (with all the construction and development, they are among the fastest in the world - it is only appropriate for them to be discussed in this thread)
AND London (who arguably "struggling" to be in topic here RE:2025) are discussed more often than all ASEAN countries combined..

Don't you dare criticize my lovely London, it's the best city in the world that's why it also has a great skyline !! In 2025 London will be no.2 in the world after New York!!

Hudson Yards district / Manhattan West. Map by Vertical Gotham: http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/or...88fc5baea5.jpg

Still not the final plan (many plots will get developed in the near future), but you get a nice overview.

Can someone help me resize the picture please.. (i just provided the link) thank you.


i think an update on some of the construction in Manila is in order..
this is just one of the many business district districts in Manila.. This is Fort Bonifacio district.
I wonder if all the lots will get filled up by 2025.
there's more construction in the middle of the district.. not seen in picture. Can you count the cranes?

Shared by our fellow forumer Lukadhead. Future skyline of Futian and Luohu CBD. This is just 1/3rd of the total skyline. All the buildings are either U/C or prep. Many renders are missing

We had a new tallest start yesterday with several more projects scheduled to start this summer. According to this, now there is even going to be a hotel and observation deck.

This is just one of many projects to come. It is a new tallest for now, but not for long.

Midtown Manhattan, recorded one week ago. As you can see, New York is changing a lot lately. Can't imagine how great it will look in 2025:
