Singapore doesnt belong to this thread imo. No supertall and not big enough. Buidings look quite boring.

Singapore may not be as tall as Guangzhou or Chicago, but it's got a lot of scale. It has quality going for it as well.

It is still regarded by many to be one of the best skylines in the world.
