Shanghai's skyline is one of the best in Asia but it can't be better than HK!!!

The placement in Shanghai is not as good as Hong Kong's but in terms of numbers, I'm sure Shanghai is pretty close, if not ahead. Some of the skyscraper designs are just a bit strange though .. Both are fantastic though -- especially at night.

Shanghai's mass of skyscrapers is quite large, and it is a lot more continuous than Hong Kong due to geography, hence the effect is quite amazing, especially looking across Puxi's sea of buildings.

I think the areas around Puxi have one of the highest concentration of skyscrapers in Shanghai but I think Pudong is still gonna be Shanghai's "Central" or where the tallest buildings are located.

Puxi is Shanghai's traditional core. Pudong was set up in the 1990's for skyscraper development and the new financial centre, much like Tianhe in Guangzhou. It's still too early to call Pudong Shanghai's 'Central'. It'll take a lot of development there to shift the urban focus away from Puxi.

True but Pudong is slowly becoming a main CBD in the city.

That is the eventual aim. It's still too early in the development stage to be anywhere close to matching Puxi in importance.

Hong Kong's rising skyline - on the Kowloon side.

*Original images were photoshopped to include nearly completed towers*





How many cities can boast that as their SECOND skyline?

Good question. I have wondered this myself. It looks very tall (900ft+). The thing with Shanghai is no one on the forum is really keeping track of what is going on there (except for highly visible towers such as SWFC). Shanghai is probably taller than most people think.


Here's an older pic of Kowloon.

Kowloon, Hong Kong

Kowloon's skyscrapers are too scattered. Even Langham Place isn't too visible although it is only a few km inland from TST in Mongkok.

True although The Union Square Development will become Kowloon's skyline showcase.

In that sense HK Island's skyscrapers are more spread out.

IFC is very Central, Centre is very Western Central, BoC is nearly Admiralty and Central Plaza is Wan Chai.

If you look at it. The Centre is around Sheung Wan, 2-IFC and BoC is with Central and Central Plaza is Wan Chai.

HK Island's skyline is spread but is organized and well presented.

True.

Does anyone else feel Tregunter Towers blocks the Peak Tower building from Kowloon waterfront or is that just me?
