Yes luckily the design of One WTC not too striking that it might cancel out the other skyscrapers attractiveness.

One thing impress me of this One WTC is the strength of the building in resisting earthquake andpossible potential bombing terrorism. It also shows the faith in American in rebuilding The WTC!

ASEAN cities except Singapore has yet to build their best..
I guess these countries would need to get "richer" first.

future Potential will be dictated by economics/wealth

Imagine if all of these developing ASEAN countries became High Income nations.

Don't you think the term "town" is an understatement?

Never get bored looking at HK skyline. I normally took at least 3-4 hrs sitting down in avenue of stars admiring those great skylines

One good thing about Singapore skyline, you wont be able to find a building that its color fading. Probably all of the buildings are well maintained and painted. This result in more clean skyline
