Qiqihar, Heilongjiang Prvo.

A fairly small skyline for its size (1.5 million). It was one of the LARGEST Cities when PRC was found (1949)... Shame.

I think all chinese cities have skyscrapers. I mean do they have any choice? Livable land is hard to find in china.

Many large cities in NE China have small skylines due to stagnant development, such as Fushun (2.38 million), Liaoning Prov.









And Anshan (3.65 million), Liaoning Prov.

Chengdu - one of the largest city (also one of the most beautiful) of the country, yet in terms of tall buildings it has not much to offer, it is getting there with a few supertall proposals and a big one planned, but it would deserve a lot more than that.

Do I make myself hugely unpopular when I think this is a dumb discussion, because I don't think in terms of deserving supertall skyscrapers like some kind of medal of jewel? That's the kind of attitude that every now and then annoys me on skyscrapercity. It is an attitude of quantity above quality. It shows a lack of interest in all the things that make architecture interesting, space, materials, style and especially contextuality. And it says you don't give a shit about urban planning.

Stop this discussion.

Why build supertalls here?
This town deserves preservation.

Nanchang should get a supertall - it's got a few nice 200m+ towers, but it needs a pinnacle to really define the skyline.

Tangshan (7.6 million in the metro), Hebei Prov.

The Skyline ridiculously small. This is by far the BEST photo I could find...
