HK's skyline is tiny... It's just one of Shenzhen's suburbs now.

As far as supertall towers go, Dubai has, on the whole, the worst examples of such structures from an architectural standpoint. Dubai has objectively no sense of taste or fashion. In particular, its local architects/ building firms really have no business designing such structures of supposed significance. They really just dont know how to, no matter how pathetically cheap their services are. Its sort of sad, really... So much wasted money and potential. Imagine what wonders could have been, if only there was a degree of competence...

You opinion sounds of baseless .....commenting without knowing of Architecture....I still know Dubai is having Greatest and most beautiful skyline rather then stupid Old Boxes like in Chicago and surely out of fashion....

Taste of Fashion ------LOL....Dubai is the fashion now......Chicago skyline is almost 50-75 years old except some boxes rise....!

Cheap service......you are welcome in Dubai and see for yourself...

Yeah Chicago skyline has been boring now..But Dubai skyline is only impressive in the night.During the daytime when you could see the architecture,it's not really as impressive.Many of the building architecture looks outdated despite being building less than 5 yrs ago..

Stunning,I couldnt imaging that in the next 5 or 10 years dubai looks like.perhaps best skyline in the world. Sadly, In China,many megacities (more than 10)compete with each other,I always think about that If goverment focus on one city,its might be becoming the biggest city which have the biggest skyline in the world.but,of course, its impossiple to do that.
