According to Dr. Cosmo, the Fernsehturm can be classified as a skyline, not to mention the best in Europe!

I like how it builds up the the pinnacle of the cluster: the water tower! There's another one to the left of the picture to balance out the cluster, which is a nice touch.

The thing that caps it off for me is the huge surface parking lot by the Civic Center.

I really like the clusters it has going on, not to mention the beautiful upscale housing.

Yes... I do not really like Shenzhen. WAY too many repititive mid-rise apartment blocks almost EVERYWEHRE. A bit like Hong Kong - except HK has so many more landmarks and just generally looks better.

My list still stand i think matey.

In five years time Shenzen is going to be among the top 3 skylines of the world. Just look at the number of skyscrapers u/c, its mindboggling...easily the highest in the world.

PS - m not a chinese.

By that logic Dubai would be #1 in everyone's ranking (it already has about 20 supertalls, including the WTB). Shenzhen's supertalls are too much spread out for my taste. Shanghai with its BIG 3 wins easily.

I said skyscrapers not supertalls. Any building above 100m is a skyscraper for me. Dubai has more supertalls but less skyscrapers, so the density is not there..even very few u/c. Shenzhen has hundreds of towers in uc/app/prep/pro stages. Shenzen is growing so fast that (faster than Shanghai) now every week a new skyscraper is proposed and every month a new suprtall. I would even say Shenzen will have the best skyline by 2025.

And by 2025-30 Mumbai will be impressive too ~ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ings_in_Mumbai

And so will Miami, given that time frame!

Well, Shenzhen started from 'nothing' so it's not surprising that so many towers are going up as we speak. The construction boom will cool down eventually but yes, by the end of this decade the city should look pretty good. But other cities aren't sleeping either.
