Shenzhen will likely be in 6th spot on that list next year after Hong Kong, New York, Shanghai, Dubai, and Tokyo.

Those numbers might be fake. I have actual proof that Shenzhen skyline is bigger, unless you can show me a photo of Guangzhou which can rival this

Those numbers don't look fake at all. Just remember that all buildings 90m and under would register as zero on the data table so a lot of the buildings in that photo wouldn't score any points towards Shenzhen's total.

ATM Guangzhou and Shenzhen are neck to neck in numbers.

Guangzhou's skyscraper distribution leans towards the 150m with a spike in the +300m range while Shenzhen's has a bulge in the 300-200m range.

In the long run I see Shenzhen taking the lead.

But in the end its a moot point. We are comparing two of the fastest growing and underrated skylines on the planet.

I'm not biased or anything, but Shenzhen does appear to have much more 100m+ buildings than Guangzhou











All of these photos are old has hell, 3 of them don't even have KK100 in them

Same goes for Guangzhou in that photo (buildings under 90m registering zero points).

In fact, Guangzhou has more built and T/O supertalls than Shenzhen, where Shenzhen leads in 100-299m range. Shenzhen is now making up for the shortage of supertalls

The numbers do seem under counted but that is a given for Chinese cities. This forum states that there is at least 800 +100m buildings in shenzhen in 2009 U/C inclusive

Not bad but a long way from the extreme density of Hong Kong or Manhattan. There are still a lot of lowrise area's between the tower blocks.

Quite right. Some angles give the impression of high rise density, but the eye instinctually travels from peak to peak. We erroneously conclude that it's block after block of high rises. In reality there are are often many blocks of low/mid rises in between. London and Frankfurt are good examples of this. When it comes to high rise density, they're not dense at all.

I think Miami is getting there, but we're not quite there yet.

This is just insane density! No other Southern city can compare from these pics.

Supposedly, we are only behind New York and San francisco with regard to lack of urban sprawl. Below illustrates the density the bulk of the skyline will take on by 2020. It's still not the entire Miami skyline though.

Most mainland chinese cities have huge parks, convention centres, malls and wide street inside the core areas, that's why there is a big gap between the skyscrapers. I don't think any city in future will be as dense and Hong Kong or Manhattan.

Miami has so much potential... the skyline doesn't really look typically North American either which makes it unique in the US.

I think this is why a lot of people don't like it. It's just not what they're used to.

They are developing at a frantic pace but so far they are far behibd Shanghai. It's skyline is the biggest.

Same to HK and NY, there are a lot of lowrises between skyscrapers.
