Nonsense. Chinese cities are jam-packed with apartments and low-rises that are barely newer than the average building in Manhattan.

A taste of the new, a rare angle from the core of Manhattan.

Seriously? US is not world centre of skyscrapers anymore, Asia and especially China is. Actually only two american cities(NYC and Chicago) are top tier skylines now. Also HK, Dubai, Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore are definetly not poor quality. Yeah I know about NYC building boom but still it won't match development of Shenzen, Suzhou, Wuhan, Guangzhou etc.

skyline? that's an aerial view. Any large city looks impressive from the air, and that's not even all of Shenzhen. Shenzhen is a long way off from becoming the best, but it has the potential. If it were building supertalls less sporadically and more in the city's center then it would be much more impressive. Most of what they're building in the center aren't as tall, discounting Pingan FC and that other Caiwuwei Mega-Tower which I haven't heard about in ages.

Yeah, there is no need to be condescending to another region's skylines, especially when the criticism doesn't make any sense.

Even though I personally prefer New York and Chicago's skylines to Asian ones, calling Asian skylines 'cute' when they have taller buildings is just dumb and unnecessarily childish.

Anyway, here's a shot of New York from the 432 Park Ave thread




And a slightly different angle

There are lots of great contenders around the world. I'm increasingly convinced that we'll see the emergence of a good 10-15 truly spectacular skylines in the not too distant future.

That's a good list. If Singapore had never left Malaysia, that country would have 2 leading skylines. That's quite impressive.
