You can see some very tall skyscrapers, medium skyscrapers, smaller skyscrapers and small, medium and large buildings. The density of Tokyo's CBD is amazing.

However, Hong Kong's skyline is still brilliant.
In some ways this is true. The only thing that Tokyo lacks as I said in my previous posts are supertalls, something that HK has.

Anyway, Jakarta is freaking stunning!!
Yes but the majority of high-rises and developments happening there are residential. There some office towers in Fort Bonifacio but mostly medium rise.

Penang metro area by night (I personally find it really stunning).







Beautiful! The lights look like lava flowing from a volcano. Fantastic! Love it!

I mean because of the economic growth of India and SE Asia (not to mention China, which already has tons of impressive skylines) will probably result in massive skyscraper growth (its starting already), I would not be surprised to see SE Asian or Indian cities in the top three, while Japan which is only in slow growth may simply stay where it is now.

Tokyo is the best now though... I love Japan and I am visiting next year... cant wait..

It seems Japan already reached its limit. But only the future will tell.

Mhm.. thats what I think as well, that Japan along with North America is nearing its limit. But North America will still grow due to massive amounts of immigration, although that will change too as China and India modernize...

Most of the major Asian cities are rapidly developing and I think sometime in the future, some of these cities can exceed HK's skyline.

HK's skyline is fully built and there is not much space for more developments. Honestly I think the ICC is enough for HK and I doubt that there are anymore supertalls planned for the region. The ICC may not be the tallest in the world but still ranks among the tallest. If HK is going to built more supertalls, it's most likely gonna happen in Kowloon or to the extreme, the harbour right out of the water.

Chinese and South East Asian cities still have more space for high-rise development.

As for Tokyo, it has a massive urbanity but not a massive skyline. And if it did it's mostly medium rise.

If Tokyo is gonna take the crown from HK, it has to build supertalls and I'm not taking about The Sumida Tower, I'm taking about those visionary supertalls.

I would like to see Sir Norman Foster's Millennium Tower built in Tokyo Bay. It has the same height as the Burj Dubai and if Dubai can build such structure, definitely Tokyo can build one as well.
