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.
Yes you're right, other cities are growing fast, however not as fast as Bangkok yet.

Bangkok doesn't have a plan for clustering tall building, however they are at least 3 huge plots in downtown belonging to State Railway of Thailand, and we might see a cluster of skyscrapers coming up there.

These are the plots, the renders in the pic are very outdated though.



Bangkok clusters are like this. They rise up in downtown area not far from mass transit lines.

The 280 m height limit is to blame but there is a skyscraper being built near Orchard Road that will exceed it.

That is also the problem with skylines within Downtown Metro Manila particularly that in Makati and The Fort.

Ninoy Aquino International Airport isn't that far so a 250 height limit is imposed. But there are a few skyscrapers that have exceed it. Our tallest, PBCom Tower is 259 m.

Some supertall projects where scaled down because of this.

The only way for a supertall to be built in Metro Manila is either midtown or uptown. So places like Ortigas, San Juan and Quezon City have better chances for such structure.

Unless our current international airport will move to either Sangley Point or Clark.

A 612 freestanding structure similar to The Tokyo Skytree is now planned uptown in Quezon City and has been approved.

It more reminds me of Miami.

LA skyline is way different from SG. The former does not have a waterfront skyline with the exception of Long Beach and Santa Monica. It has that unique high-rise multi clusters surrounded by low-rise structures.

SG does not have that.
