Very difficult, I agree, but I wouldn't say impossible.
About the natural setting, that is very true. One of the things that makes Hong Kong's skyline so impressive is the juxtaposition of modern skyscrapers and beautiful mountains rising out of the sea.

Numerous Urban regeneration projects are undertaken in all the urban area and especially in Kowloon ( Sham Shui Po ) , there are also dozen of residential projects ( essentially highrises ) wich don't really provide a Plus to the skyline but give more density and greenery ...

Land in HK is limited and build up. The place has already too much skyscrapers so there is no need to build more.

Now if the territory's population continues to increase and economy booming, then demand for additional high-rise buildings will be needed.

I have to give it to NYC! One WTC brought it back as the major skyscraper city!

Quality, yes as the city has skyscrapers from every major era up to today's century.
