Actually, Tianjin and Toronto bear more similarity to each other than Singapore & Toronto do, as both have that stupid shaped TV Towers, only that Tianjin's Skyline will be bigger and taller than Toronto's in less than a decade.

As in economical competitiveness term, HK's day will be over, taking that occupying streets movement inflicted by those silly protestors will go on for years to come.

Chicago? not really..
IMO - more like Seattle..

Jakarta and Manila have similarities.. but as time passes.. you'd realize both cities are going on different directions.
Actually, I can see Jakarta going the "Bangkok way" (with better quality) rather than the "Manila way"

Jakarta is still changing a lot.. we'll see in a few more years..

No way seattle lol, maybe miami from far

Mnila don't have supertall projects though they have better clustering


In future, cities like Jakarta, KL and Bkk are competing each other in building supertalls

BKK for me has reached its peak.. a few more supertalls would bring little change to its skyline. which is already big and spread.. (case in point Baiyoke)
and It's not growing as fast as the other skylines anymore...

what it needs is a not a single or two of supertalls.. but a Central CLUSTER Of them. IMO




in ASEAN I anticipate Jakarta and KL the most!!

What's this with BKK reaching its peak?? The property development is still growing strong, especially along old and new mass transit lines
and next year is expected to be the golden year of thai property developments. Perhaps you haven't followed on the projects in BKK? BANGKOK | Projects & Construction
There's at least 4 new confirmed supertalls, 3 u/c and one more to be unveiled soon.

There are still many big plots waiting for developments that could drastically change Bangkok's skyline. Such as this one here right next to the expressway.
Bidding for this plot has already taken place, and they will build a skyscraper complex there.

The complex will be popping up in the middle in the background. The new Megatall will be rising up close to the place too.

IMO, all cities in ASEAN have their own skyline.. We should not similar it with the other cities.. SG is the best of the best.. KL is the best of the best.. MM is the best of the best.. BKK is the best of the best.. JKT is the best of the best.. and HCMC is the best of the best.. Those cities now keep rising and rising their own skyline Can't wait to see all ASEAN cities in 2020

I hope you are right!!
It's just that my opinion was based on reports.
Bangkok has been aggressive in its decentralization efforts, and is successful at that. Mainly because of that, it has been predicted that BKK will lag it's neighbors in building construction in the following years. I've heard that 2nd tier cities like Chiang Mai are growing faster than BKK nowadays.. (Well they maybe wrong coz, population and decentralization policies was the only thing considered in the report. While Other factors might change the situation. )



Just curious if Bangkok will ever consider clustering taller towers in a new Area? instead of them being far apart... It will really be nice if they do.

Reason I don't go to the Thai forums is bcoz of the language barrier.
