HK has less than 10 million but it feels like a megacity.

Anyway, KL to me is the best skyline in South East Asia

The area around KLCC isn't too dense, but the area around KL Tower is fairly built-up. The views from the tower are very nice.

Some of the earliest skyscrapers in KL were built in the area around Menara KL.

KLCC is getting denser each day with all the new apartments rising everywhere in the city... The reason for a sudden boom of these new high end apartments were due to worries by the city council that KL would turn dead at night in the future (ghost town) if it is only full of office towers But it seems like there are bit too many high end apartments in the city now and the developers are beginning to look into building new office towers... I would say in the case of KL, the city would grow taller very slowly but the surrounding conurbations will get taller and taller within these few years...

KLCC's density is reduced because there is a huge park right next to the Petronas Towers.

It is still incomplete but the good news is that the city council will take over the land again and hand it to another quality developer by end of May The current developer fails to meet several completion deadlines, with the final one being end of May 2007. Too many chances been given but nothing has improved so let's pray that Plaza Rakyat will start to soar by the end of this chapter

Yes, that is the one. It's a lot smaller than Central Park though, but the ambiance is great.

I like it how you have large parks right next to the CBDs.

Mumbai doesn't have much of a skyline at present. The traditional financial district in Nariman Point doesn't have many very tall buildings. Colaba has a few :



The focus should be on midtown :
