If we talk about population density, I believe there are some cities in third world countries with even bigger population density per square mile, with no highrises whatsoever.

Either that, or the red is supposed to be orange, and is orange, white and blue, the flag of New York City...

In terms of supertalls in one spot?


Midtown Manhattan would absolutely take #1 spot. Theres what? 9-10 buildings currently over 1000' and another 5-6 under construction all within a roughly 1x1 mile block


In terms of overall density, I'd imagine it's a throw up of Hong Kong, Shenzhen or Shanghai

Shenzhen and Shanghai are not that dense... they are just insanely spread and just look very dense from certain angles...

If you go to street level, even the densest areas, like Lujuazui or Futian there are decent gaps between skyscrapers.

If we talk about tall buildings density, Manhattan have the biggest density... in many places in Midtown or Lower Manhattan, a lot of tall buildings have sides of them "glued" to the sides of other tall buildings... I would even call that "too dense" when tall buildings are not only very close to each other, but "touch" each other...

Chicago and Hong Kong have skyscrapers very close to each other, but still have a few meters gap between them (not counting those residential complexes in HK, where some towers are linked to one another, since they are part of the same development, and look more like one building... the skyscrapers and buildings of different owners don't really "touch")

Lujuazui and Futian are not the densest places In Shanghai or Shenzhen. The old centers of Puxi and Luohu is where the skyscraper density is at. But still not record breaking dense, hamfisted Chinese urban planning prevents that in most places. Recently, the most egregious rules are now being relaxed.

Highest density is Shanghai or Shenzhen are in lowrise and midrise areas... Areas with skyscrapers and supertalls are not very dense. But this is true even in cities like New York, where World Trade Center, even Hudson Yards are not exactly crazy dense.

Also, Shenzhen from the start was planned not to be extremely dense, with all the wide streets, plazas and green areas.
