Not so. Chicago's triple peak is nearly perfectly balanced. Shanghai's tends to be messy and not very orderly. The skyline of Pudong gets lost in plateaus to the north and west. Don't get me wrong, Shanghai is tied for my third favorite skyline in the world. However, balanced and orderly it is not.

Can not agree you more, especially when SH tower is completed

In order to reclaim the #1 spot, HK needs to have couple more supertalls that should be as tall or even taller than the SH tower. Of course, height isn't everything but it would certainly help.

Lujiazui skyline is quite versatile, the skyline looks completely different viewing from different sides of bund.

It is actually quite interesting to see the skyline morph dramatically as you walk along bund. I think the vantage point in the above photo of shanghai is one of the best you can get for viewing Lujiazui skyline.

The original masterplan for Lujiazui skyline was to have 3 supertalls in the middle surrounded by a ring of 200+s forming a circle. It is gradually taking shape.

Aon is the only boring building in Chicago. Where else are ones like Sears, John Hancock, Trump, 2 Prudential, and AT&T? It has nice designs for buildings 800+ feet, but keeps the smaller ones simple to avoid them stealing the spotlight. I think it's very similar to HK.

If the 'big 3' were built where Lujiazui park is then I'd say the plan of having 3 supertalls surrounded by 200+s would work much better. Shanghai Tower is too close to the river and right next to residentials that are only 100m.

Yeah, they at least should have swapped the ST and the SWFC plots.

I never understood why the Lujiazui planning limited the height of the riverside towers to around 200m (e.g. the OFC U/C). Even a 300m tower wouldn't block the view of the "Big Three"...Now we have three really tall towers and then a lot of towers that aren't even half as tall as them.

My hope is that the North Bund with it's ongoing projects (White Magnolia, Fishermen's Wharf, Pujiang IFC) is starting to develop a nice skyline over the next century. Just imagine Yellow Fever's photo with those projects completed (left side of the photo)...

300m would block the big three viewing from Bund. You got to remember the big three are actually quite far from the riverbank, although it seems they are right on it.

OK, 300m probably would be too tall, but at least something around 250m (like the IFC towers). Those 180m towers like Aurora or Citibank are just too small in comparison to the Big Three.
