Agree w/ NY, HK & SH but w/ Chicago I have some reservations.

I'll probably get hounded for saying so, but I just don't see Chicago in that top tier either. New York, Shanghai, and Hong Kong are in a league of their own. Chicago is close, I'll give it that.

Going forward, the gap will widen further and we'll see 2 distinct groups: the top 3 (NY, SH, HK) and about 6-7 other skylines the next rung down.

Economically, yes. But Not sure about the skyline...

A couple of other Chinese cities including Shenzhen, Tianjin and Suzhou will catch up with Hong Kong in terms of total GDP within the next decade (Shanghai & Beijing had already surpassed Hong Kong in 2010 and 2012 respectively).






Guangzhou / Canton / 广州, China

Sorry for the huge image, and it may have been posted before but wow. This just reminded me why I fell in love with Hong Kong.

It's between NYC, Chicago, HK.

NYC wins on scale, Chicago wins on aesthetic beauty/architecture, and Hong Kong wins on height/surroundings. It really comes down to what quality you care the most about.

I also think that Shenzhen will crack the top 5 within 10 years.

Hong Kong has more skyscrapers than New York, in every category (150m (500ft), 200m (650ft), 300m (1000ft) and 400m (1300ft)). But NY has a very good chance to beat my city in the last threee categories.

With 1WTC, 4WTC and One57 already topped out, NY already experienced a height boost. With 432 Park Avenue (426m), Hudson Yards North Tower (408m), 225 West 57th Street (~500m) and several other supertalls under way, it will only get better and even beat Chicago heightwise.

Also, don't forget Shanghai. I think the Pudong skyline by itself is in the top 5. The city as a whole I have ranked as #3, taking over Chicago which is at #4 right now.

And btw I agree on Chicago having arguably the most aesthetic and balanced skyline in the world.

Edit, another great photo found by THE BIG APPLE on SSP. Related's Hudson Yards on the lower right, another Related tower but a rental U/C on the far right, Gotham West finishing up on the left, Extell is breaking ground on a new rental tower right below the building with the horizontal white/black stripes next to the church, and Silverstein is working on twin 60 story rentals near Extell's site.
