Chongqing definitely has one of the most fabulous skylines in China!

There is something Manhattan-esque about Chongqing that I really like. For sure its skyline is top five in China and it has a lot of potential to climb up the world's top 10 skylines.

That glass condo has a very 'Toronto' look and feel to it. It took me by surprised to see it in the Manhattan skyline.

It's the white balconies. Balconies in general are relatively uncommon in big residential buildings here, but some of the newer luxury buildings have them.

Yes, I equate balcony free condo towers with Manhattan. Aesthetically I prefer it but personally I'd go nuts with no outdoor space of my own. I spend a great deal of time on mine. Unfortunately most new buildings have balconies so small or with so little protection that they're useless space. Once you go higher than 40 floors its a little pointless to build them due to wind. I wouldn't ever live that high up precisely for that reason.

My balcony has solid walls on all sides which makes for a very cozy private space. It doesn't make for a great looking building on the outside though.

Yeah, exactly. Balconies tend not to look good in skyscrapers but not having one is a drawback for residents. It's for this reason that rooftops are so popular for hanging out here in NY.
