Hohoho . . .
He means too crowded or too dense, may be . . .
But, I think Hong Kong is (still) the best for now.

Followed by other East Asian cities, then Southeast Asian, then Middle Eastern, then South Asian . . .
Hohoho . . . just my opinion though.

sorry, but i just don't see how mumbai can compete with bankok, K-L or mikati etc in the near future, even with the mentioned projects finished. in terms of skyscrapers and therefore skyline, mumbai lags most of the nominated cities in this thread. After all, those cities have been building skyscrapers for years if not decades. For mumbai to top them all, it needs more than just to build a few skyscrapers.

Shanghai in 1998 already had an impressive skyline--the Jin Mao tower was completed. But again it is improved even more after 2000. So let's hope that once the proposed projects in mumbai are finished, there will be a more ambitious plan to significantly improve the mumbai skyline, as long as its economy keeps growing at current speed.
