A bit odd there isn't a variety of density but a few tall sticks popping up. That doesn't make a decent skyline at all.

there are plans opposite the Lotter supertall to rebuild the aging public housing to 40+ storeys. hope within next 5-10 years it will balance the skyline. As for now, it feels like Tokyo skytower or maybe Taipei 101 haha

Actually, Taipei 101 is not lonely at all compared to that Seoul tower. There has are many intensification projects in the vicinity, and Xinyi district is being built as a new CBD.

Here is a project that was recently completed : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1230463

it will still looks quite lonely especially Taipei 101 is taller than neighbour buildings by 2 times. would need 2-3 tower with 250m above around it to make it merrier


for seoul case, it would need supertalls around it but its impossible as most of land are utilised. so maybe in the next 10 years it will balance better just like Taipei 101 when first completed, it looks alone


Taipei 101 8 years ago

Let's not forget classic skylines can also be beautiful - one which height won't enhance it. A great example of this effect is Prague :

My personal takes...
Guangzhou already surpassed Chicago in the skylines definition.

nicer settings
much greater heights
more layered fillers

the only thing Chicago is greater of is the multi ages architectures it has...

I think chicago has denser skyline in cbd. Guangzhou has many gaps probably due to wide road lanes and parks. I would still put chicago on top of GUangzhou

correct...Chicago is denser!

personally, i dont like CAN straight layout park... wish it was curvier, then, the cbd will not have a vast gap.... but i love most of the buildings in its cbd... got many styles n well lit up at night!

Chicago's skyline is more dense and spread out. Guangzhou's new CBD is actually very small and runs perpendicular to the river along a central axis, so it is quite difficult to get a decent view of how big it is from the typical vantage points.
