There are 2 Super talls in the city plans all along. With the plans to relocate that airbase, may result in a relaxation to existing height restrictions.

Twelve most beautiful skylines as of April 2017 as contended by a geography centric website.
http://www.worldatlas.com/articles/1...the-world.html

Surprisingly, no Chicago, Hong Kong or even Sydney. Obviously aesthetic value is quite subjective, but it is rather interesting to see some other point of view in this case..

No Chicago?! Not listing the place that built the very first modern skyscraper in history?! A place with, I dunno, 8 or so supertalls and over 120 buildings over 500 feet tall, a place with such beauty, balance and symmetry to its skyline -- no mention?!! Blasphemy!!...........



Its all subjective my friend.... all subjective

Hmm, very weird list. I can't believe Kuala Lumpur is first. On my list it probably doesn't even make the top 20.

All depends on which set of parameters they used to define and draw this list of their Top 12 skylines.

Existing skylines are evolving so fast and others are rising from nowhere in no time around the world that no two people or groups of people will pick the same selection.

KL's skyline always looked scattered and messy but it's really come together the last year or two. I have it in my top 10 now and it could go a lot higher. They're building/proposing a lot of extremely tall buildings. Taking into account the pipeline of proposals in KL and around the world, KL might sneak into my top 5 by 2025.

One little thing that KL short for is that the city isnt located at waterfront. So in every angle cant get to see any water not even a river.

But i agree that KL will breakthrough top 5 by 2025

Most cities grow up next to a body of water. KL is very odd in that respect (as is Mexico City). A little off topic but why did the capital develop there?

Not sure what year that is
Kuala Lumpur started as a mining settlement in the late 1800's at the junction of these two rivers. It outgrew that boundary and gained importance when the British decided to make it the capital of the Federated Malay states as it is midpoint between the established ports of Singapore and Penang(Georgetown). KL is also served by the then small Port Swettenham some twenty miles away in a straight line, at the mouth of the same river. Growth has been rather haphazard and organic that may explain the seemingly chaotic layout of the place. The two rivers are small by any standard, certainly not meant for navigation though earlier on shallow boats or sampans did ply the shallow waters.

Haha actually i find bangkok has a good skyline, definitely contender for top 10 world best. The skyline itself is quite big and they do got 2 supertalls with 1 or 2 more coming up

If there will be additional supertall at causeway bay at the right side of pic will be even great.
