whats the difference between American cities and Chinese cities?

those chinese cities skyscrapers were built later.

To me now Chinese cities has progressed so much that they are on par with american cities

If we do apple to apple comparison, it will be;

-New York Vs Shanghai
-Chicago Vs Guangzhou
-Los Angeles Vs Nanjing
-San Fransisco Vs Shenzhen
-Philadelphia Vs Tianjin
-Boston Vs Beijing
-Miami Vs Chongqing
-Honolulu vs Macau?

How about those chinese cities like Wuhan, Nanchang, Chengdu, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Haikou, Dalian, Harbin, Shenyang and the other cities?

There are already five Chinese cities among the top 10 in the world in terms of number of skyscrapers overall. There could be 8 before very long with Chinese cities knocking Chicago, Tokyo, and Bangkok out of the top 10.

I agree that New York is Shanghai's counterpart and thus I would say Hong Kong is the same to Chicago if we put it in the context of WingWing's list.

The Chinese don't love skyscrapers any more than other nationalities. Skyscrapers construction depends upon the need for office and residential space. If you have 1.3 billion people, there will be high demand for both.

I doubt we'll see lots of super talls in Japan due to earthquake issues. If technology improves, perhaps. We'll probably see them in Jakarta and Seoul. Europe? They only started building tall about 20 years ago so they're about a century behind Canada, the US, and Australia in that regard. They're in catch up mode.

China start building skyscrapers 10-20 years ago. Maybe for japan it is but for other cities had no reason for that.

Sorry, Juan Paulo! As much as I like it, you have to downsize it. We just can't have everybody doing this. If we do it for one, we have to do it for all and then we have mess of a thread to pull up.

Sometimes I wonder what size screens you all have. You must be surfing the threads on your smart phones, I imagine.
