Chicago, USA

I think this [south view] is the best angle of the Windy City's skyline

We are certainly less saturated with them than we used to be. There is one of them above that is from an angle I really like and have not seen before. I don't dare repeat the pic though.

I hope it wont affect future developments of big cities which include shenzhen. If there is a demand they will build it, just observe the Chinese property market, in Hangzhou itself which considered as tier 1 city has some projects undergo liquidation and many new offices and apartments left unsold till they slash price.

Its not that shenzen doesnt need 100 supertalls but if price too high who will buy? You?

It's obviously that they're building too much and not enough Chinese can afford the prices they are asking in many of the new buildings, at least for the time being.

That's not true either. The tallest buildings outside the US were in either Montreal, Moscow, or Toronto for most of the 20th century. Toronto held that title till the Bank of China tower went up in Hong Kong (1990).

Tallest Buildings Outside the United States
1915-1928: Royal Bank Building 80m, Toronto
1928-1931: Royal Bank Building 121m, Montreal
1931: Sun Life Building, 122m, Montreal
1931-1952: Commerce Court North 145m, Toronto
1952-1953: Kotelnicheskaya Building 176m, Moscow
1953-1975: Moscow State 240m, Moscow
1975-1990: First Canadian Place 298m, Toronto
1990-1992: Bank of Hong Kong 367m, Hong Kong
1992-1996: Central Plaza 374, Hong Kong
1996-1997: Shun Hing Square 384m, Hong Kong
1997-1998: CITIC Plaza 391m, Guangzhou
1998-2003: Petronas 452m, Kuala Lumpur
2004-2009: Taipei 101 509m, Taipei
2010-Present: Burj Khalifa 828m, Dubai


* The Egyptian pyramid of Khafra would have held the title till 1931 if we include ancient buildings. It is 144m.

What's the reason why there are no bridges over the river in this area to Pudong? I'm assuming there are car, rail, and pedestrian tunnels?

I had reservations about putting it here, but thought a couple shots wouldn't hurt. It's no heavyweight, but will morph into a solid Canadian #2 before the decade is out. Calgary's new tallest at 247m is U/C and a 221m beauty is about to break ground.
