India's population is projected to be more than 1,5 Billion by 2040, 200M more than the current estimated count...which means larger scale migration to major cities and additional strain on land resources.

I think at some point, other cities like Bangalore, Chennai and even Delhi will no longer to able to spread horizontally and will be under the obligation to rise.
Or completely new cities will crop up.

Will be interesting to watch!

Hence, we see a real skyline emerging in Bombay as people have to live in high rises and supertall.

Even Bombay is struggling with having a decent supertall "commercial" tower.

Just imagine how much Calcutta, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Karachi, Dhaka, Lahore, Colombo will struggle to have real supertall massive skyline.

Its unfeasible (too high a cost), unsustainable (very high maintenance) and unwanted (all subcontinent megacities except Bombay have full land access and can easily spread horizontally which is much cheaper in longer run)
What you have said is completely right at present. But I don't agree with "No other can have" I think due to so much uncontrolled rise in population. In future south asian cities will be forced to go up! For e.g in Lahore due to increase in demand for houses. Housing colonies have started eating up farm land which definitely can't continue for long!

Dont hold your breath!

No city besides Bombay in subcontinent will go up even "residentially" let alone commercially.

All these cities will still find it favorible to spread horizontally.

Its much much tougher to fill 100 floor commercial tower to the top.

100 flrs "residential" towers are too expense driven. Notice how much subcontinent suffers in general in providing electricity, potable and non-potable water supply and proper drainage to horizontal population.

There will be midrises to highrises mostly here and there.

But true proper Shanghai, Dubai, NYC, Chicago kind dominating skyline is near impossible.

Even for Bombay, "commercially" speaking.

If anyone is being neutral, the first prize goes to Mumbai without a doubt. The rest are just competing for second place.

Anyhow, here's Dhaka

Gurgaon

Well, i know this is not the best skyline, but i think this city (along with Noida) has huge potential to put up an impressive skyline in the near future. Thousands of 20+ floor buildings are currently u/c in these two tier II cities (Noida & Gurgaon).

Although nowhere close to Dhaka or being in the top 10, the city of Chittagong is one of the fastest growing in the world. Lots of potential for the future.

i love you. you know that, right? by mohammad fazle muniem, on Flickr
