Only in NY can an 800' tower be lost in the crowd!

HK has more skyscrapers than NY and could easily hide an 800 footer in the crowd. There are other cities too - Dubai, depending on where the 800 footer is, Shenzhen, areas of Shanghai.

Actually, there are numerous cities where an 800' building could disappear. It depends on the image angle. There are also angles where this building and many others look quite prominent.

Hong Kong? Are you kidding? Almost all skyscrapers in HK are less than 600f tall, today of course New York is far more impressive, as some other big cities. Keep up to date, HK has suffered more than 10 years of stagnation while New York is booming.

You seem to have a problem understanding. I never claimed HK is more impressive. I said that it could easily hide an 800 foot tower just like NY, depending on the angle as it has enough taller towers to do so. It has more skyscrapers per emporis, they are the facts. I keep well up to date thank you very much. If you think its not possible, go and play around with photoshop and you will see plenty of places you can crowd out an 800 foot tall tower in HK to the point where it would be easy to miss. I'm waiting for your results.

well, technically, unless you place an 800 footer right opposite the existing supertalls and close-supertalls, you can't really "hide" or make "disappear" a skyscraper that high in HK, like anywhere in HK. I can see plenty of spots in NYC where an 800 footer can easily get lost in the crowd, however

Yes, looks like the netting is finally getting removed from the Woolworth!!! banana: Also good to see the cladding on this tower getting more and more complete!
