I think it refers to quantity

But surprisingly there are 10 out of top 20 that comes from China!



Agree KL should be in the top 10.

@rensha

The ranking has more to do with number of buildings + height (minimum of 90m). It is the only ranking that uses the most current statistics on buildings. It gets updated every year.



KL was ahead of Manila for a long time.. Manila only caught up.. with the recent boom (2013). Next Year, Manila for sure will also overtake Singapore and probably Chongging.
In terms of overall height and quantity of buildings, BANGKOK is undoubtedly number 1 in ASEAN. It will take several more years for others to catch up.



The scores for these 3 are really close: The battle for top 10 will be really tough.
10. Chongqing 12,794 points
11. Singapore 12,767 points
12. Manila 12,725 points

There was a previous discussion on the other thread about this (check it out)
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post121194418


also this shows the ranking from 2009 to 2014
You will clearly see the change in rankings

Yes you are right about Hong Kong, it's points dropped.....issues with emporis.
Jakarta surpassed Toronto in 2013, but it was ahead of Toronto in 2011 and 2010.

Imoo.. there is the possibility of Jakarta will increase its ranking, but of course only under one condition that Manila, Seoul and Kualalumpur will have fewer skyscrapers projects to be completed compared to Jakarta.
Jakarta in 2015 will completed a supertall (Cemindo Tower) and several buildings with a height exceeding 200 meters (Sahid Sudirman Center, MSIG, Ciputra World 1, St.Regis, Centenial, Waldrof Astoria, IFC), coupled with dozens of buildings above 100 meters.

You do know that Chongqing has at least 45 +150m buildings under construction with ~18 +150m slated to finish this year right?

that is why I said "probably"


But Manila is consistently increasing it's score each year.. More than Chongqing in the previous years.. so it's not really a one way battle. The gap was bigger in 2011, but Manila is catching up really fast. It may surprise you, but Manila is growing just as fast (if not faster) as any Chinese city.

--------------------2014-----2013-------2012-------2011
10 Chongqing 12,794 -----12,576 -----11,197 -----10,536
12 Manila -----12,725 -----11,479 -----9,026 --- --7,825


Look at the numbers I compiled resulting from the data for the past 6 years (2009-2014)

These numbers are

5. Guangzhou 65.59%

But if Points are to be the criteria.. the highest points increase are (for 6 years)
*only those with complete info
1. Shenzhen 10,926 points (Adding one Kuala Lumpur to its skyline in just 6 years!!!)
2. Dubai 9,661 (adding one Toronto)
3. Shanghai 7,649 (adding TWO Los Angeles)
4. Guangzhou 6,800 (adding one Beijing)
5. Manila 6,127 (adding one Miami)
6. Hong Kong 5,464 (adding one Mumbai)
7. Singapore 5,070 (adding one Houston)

** Chongqing 3,945 (adding one LA)

seems like China, and East Asia (including Japan,Korea) dominate the Top Skyline list in Asia.

hmmm... interesting, i think it will take some times before Cities in SEA to catch up :-|
