You've obviously never been to Beijing and just judge it from a couple of photos that are being posted here.

Sure the Chaoyang skyline might not seem really impressive when seen from the top of Jingshan Park, but just take a drive or walk along one of the 3 inner ringroads around Beijing and you'll see nothing but highrises for kilometers on both sides.
