By what measurement? Pretty sure Hong Kong and Macau are denser overall. Even the 市中心 (urban core) of Chongqing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou is denser than the approximately equivalent the 23 wards in Tokyo. Manila City proper whihc is also approximately equivalent to the 23 wards is much denser.

Nope. Here's the cities you listed: Singapore, Toronto, Dubai, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Tokyo, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Jakarta, Chicago

Of these, Singapore, Toronto, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Tokyo and Jakarta all lack supertalls.

The main difference between north american cities like New York and chinese ones like Shenzen is that New York follows a pattern, you are able to idetify where the streets are and so on.
