4. Singapore 65.87%

*only those with complete info
1. Shenzhen 10,926 points (Adding one Kuala Lumpur to its skyline in just 6 years!!!)
2. Dubai 9,661
3. Shanghai 7,649
4. Guangzhou 6,800
5. Manila 6,127
6. Hong Kong 5,464
7. Singapore 5,070


I created a spreadsheet that tabulates all the info above. So interpretation would be easier.

I think it is safe to say that, "Manila is growing on par with Chinese cities"

I did these comparisons last year.. i think it's time to update it.

I'm a bit surprised Toronto missed the top 10 in the 'largest points increase'. What was the total? I'm guessing around 4,000 or 4km of high-rise construction (not including the 1st 90m of each building). Would it have qualified as the biggest points increase outside Asia?

It's getting there for sure. Another 7-8 years of construction and it will all start coming together for the downtown. At ground level it still needs a bit of work; especially on Yonge.
