Nothing really impressive in those shots , the only things that make SP special in terms of skyline is the continuous highrises density and the amount of highrises !

Agreed, I find the "quantity" of highrises in Sao Paulo impressive but the city is still a long shot from being one of the best skylines in the world in my opinion. Sao Paulo has potential, it only needs a few skyscrapers and a couple of supertalls to leapfrog to the top of the list on this thread

Your right, MM really need an iconic supertall and more,more glassy highrises. But for now,lets just let it be, MM is still building out of necessity rather than to-build-just-to-impress kind of thing. We'll probably be seeing significant number of supertalls in 5-10yrs.

I agree SP has really great potentials. All it needs is to focus on building for quality(height & aesthetics wise)rather than quantity.

Yatchouse Club Tower 2  Balneário Camboriú  227	       2019
Sky Tower               Balneário Camboriú  210	       2017	
Epic Tower              Balneário Camboriú  209        2016
Tour Geneve             João Pessoa	    183	       2014
Alameda Jardins         Balneário Camboriú  170	       2015

Five buildings over 200 meters is pretty impressive.
