KL probably is not quite there yet when compared with the big ones, but it's coming up nicely...lots of stuff happening there...by 2025, the city will be completely transformed. Will easily pave its way to the Top 10.

Taipeis mass damper basically sits at the roof height of Willis, the actual roof is only a few meters above that damper, while the remaining height is done by a spire.
If Petronas wanted to cheat the Willis Tower, why would they cheat in expensive way of building 2 towers instead of 1 thin tower like Burj Khalifa?
And why would they went for expensive steel cladding instead of plain glass like Willis Tower?
In fact, Petronas was never intended to be the world's tallest building. The one that announced it was the guy from Chicago itself, which is CTBUH.

If cheating is your main point, then one who cheated Willis Tower is actually 1WTC, which surpassed WT to become tallest building in America

No not only because of Petronas towers, but because 1) KL has a large and tight cluster of skyscrapers of various heights and textures, and 2) it has a nice apex or crescendo to the skyline, culminating in two good-looking signature towers (which happen to be the iconic PTT.. but honestly if another good looking building was there in their place, I probably would still rate KL best in Southeast Asia).

For me at least, this looks pretty awesome:

This thread has truly become the "Best ASEAN Skyline" thread. Come on guys, give us a break from the KL, BKK, and SIN pictures! Best to ONLY post the best puctures here, and ONE AT A TIME. For those who cannot contain themselves from posting more than one picture per post, go to the "Best Asian Skyline" thread where it is more appropriate to show those pictures that do not really capture the BEST angles of a skyline. I want to see more Toronto, Dubai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Chongqing, New York etc. on this thread.
