supertall may be important to skyline,, but not indispensable..
actually many cities've got fully beautiful skylines without any supertall,, like Sydney, Melbourne, Rio.. and so on..

I agree. A supertall can sometimes throw the balance of a skyline out the window. Makati is nice.

Top 3 Asian skylines :

1)Hong Kong
2) ShangHai
3)Dubai

if some cities have supertalls and also high in density , others are just overrated and also overposting pics here (same pic but in diff angle).

pity.

unfortunately most Malaysians dislike highrises, that's why they stay long-terrace homes (like British style)...... good news is KL planning several tall ones to combine the KLCC skyline and the KL Tower areas........


KLCC Area

Even if it's more populous than Hong Kong...

Something like San Jose, wich is now more populous than it's neigbour San Francisco, but it will never be more famous.
