I look at both Jakarta and Manila in the equal level in terms of skylines and development.

Though I find Makati's skyline and density similar to Manhattan while Jakarta's is more like LA

Depends on which parts of Manhattan. Upper East and West are not very dense. Midtown is extremely dense, while pockets of the Financial District are even more. The portion between the two is not dominated by very tall buildings at all.

Manhattan's skyscrapers especially those in lower Manhattan and midtown are pretty dense and are cramped to each other. That's the same thing I see when I look at Makati's skyscrapers. The only difference is Makati's skyline lack the height, density or collection of either lower or midtown Manhattan.

Jakarta's skyscrapers on the other hand has space to breathe. It's skyline reminds me of those of LA or Houston.

Mumbai has quite a long way to go to shape its skyline. A lot of focus has been on its midtown, rather than the traditional core. Meanwhile, New Delhi recently came out with a plan to introduce skyscrapers to house the slum dwellers and to accomodate the tide of newcomers.

And if New Delhi introduces this plan, would it be similar to the public housing estates of HK or SG?

It's too early to tell what that might mean for New Delhi's skyline. There doesn't seem to be a bureaucratic setup for large-scale housing estates like those in New York, London, Hong Kong, etc. But the slum situation in Indian cities is quite bad, and the only way to house so many people and to accomodate the rural migrants is to build up. So far, Mumbai is a surprisingly lowrise city.

I think it's the same for most major cities where public housing is a concept. It may not have to be highrise but enough to house those who are needy.

I don't think they have set up the framework to oversee large-scale public housing projects. Even if that is in place, how do they expropriate the land that is now full of slums to actually build large developments?

In developed cities, land rights are much better enforced, and the government holds land stock to build public housing. I don't think this framework is in place yet in India, as with many developing countries.
