I agree with you, JuanPaulo. Guangzhou has great balance, killer height and a high proportion of iconic buildings, all in a relatively compact and tidy CBD. It's insanely photogenic. Whereas, while the scale of Ping An and the other supertalls rising out of all that sprawling density are impressive, there are many vantage points from which SZ doesn't look very cohesive. It currently paints a picture of a work in progress...

I think the current awe factor of the scale of SZ combined with our collective imaginations is helping lift it into the top-5 or top-3, even surpassing GZ on a lot of peoples' lists. Because you just can't help but think about what that progress is going to look like in 5-10 years, when it will be a strong contender for the no. 1 spot.

I also prefer Guangzhou over Shenzhen.

That Toronto shot is fabulous. Toronto still has a ton of room to grow in the core and you can see the high rise density starting to creep into the western edge of downtown.
