I think in the Middle East, the top 3 centre of skyscraper development would be,

1) Dubai
2) Doha
3) Kuwait City

BUSAN

Busan is the second largest city of South Korea with 3.6 millions of population... It does not have great skyscrapers yet... but it is on speeding up now to redevelop on all sides of the city... These four pictures show the old area of Busan...

Doha shocked me! Thanks for posting some Doha picks. Now, we'd be able to have more variety and more accurate choices

Seoul is actually planning a huge supertall that even got the military concerned because of air space restrictions.

The military is concerned because of the height, not Seoul's proximity to the DMZ. Seoul is the country's financial capital. I doubt skyscrapers are going to move south because of tensions with North Korea.

Why would height matter? Does it violate airscape?

Extract:
The Air Force is asking the central government to arbitrate in its dispute with Seoul municipal authorities over Lotte Group's plan to build the country's tallest building in southeastern Seoul.

The military has long demanded the group reduce the height of the building for safety reasons, but the Seoul Metropolitan Government went ahead and approved the plan in March.

If that's the case then it would be difficult for Seoul to build supertalls.

Skyscraper Restrictions in Seoul

Lotte intends to construct new skyscraper Lotte World Tower which has 555m height by 2011... but the airforce has required the company to lower height of the building down to 203m for safety of aircrafts which taking off or landing from the military airport... The government is now checking up the flight security that related to the construction and the result is still uncertain... Here is CG of the builing that the company offered...


I think the Seoul government does not like skyscrapers over 400 or 500m appearing in this city... Actually several skyscraper projects had been rejected or changed into 2 or 3 lower buildings in the past... All of them have a same reason... harmony with the surroundings like a mountain far away...

in my opinion, I dont like skyscrapers that measures 400m above coz it will only make other buildings look small. for me, 5-10 skyscrapers of 250 to 350m will do, it's enough to make the skyline look beautiful.
