wow... thats a huge compliment coming from my fellow aseanmate...

Thank you, but no, KL is just a miniature 1/10 of what Shanghai or other big hustlers like NY,HK,Chicago,Toronto,Dubai or Guangzhou are...
It just that in some of the time, KL's pics cannot easily being eaten alive by those big HUSTLERS'.
and from the last picture you had posted before, i think any moment from now all the clustered cbds in metro Manila will be connected together to form one giant impressive skyline.

Actually KL is coming up nicely, better than many others I would say...of course, it's not Shanghai, NY or HK and it doesn't have to be, but it could easily give other big cities a run for their money...will definitely be in the Top 10 in the next ten years.

For instance, our 700 and 800 footers look small in our skyline.

All of this can lead to a very deceptive look in pictures.... until you actually visit the place and get a true appreciation for the "scale" of Chicago. You can't get that in pictures.

.


I can personally attest to this..


Chicago looks is deceptively small in pictures until I went there in person and realized that the Willis Tower is physically larger than 1 WTC lol. Anyone saying Chi-town isn't massive is just lying lol. I'd put it above places like Tokyo, Singapore or just about every other city on listed in this thread when it comes to sheer grandeur or in your face impact it gives you when you arrive.


I don't know how people seriously try to compare Miami, San Fran or Houston to Chi-town, but they are completely different scales. Baring obviously NYC, Toronto is about the only north American city that can genuinely match Chicago's skyline in size.


Which brings the second issue... comparing cities to NYC.. you can't


No city on the planet (including HK which I've been to) has that many buildings packed in such a restricted space and in such a claustrophobic manner to drive the nail home. Downtown Manhattan alone damn near matches the entirety of Chicago's office space, and Midtown is almost x3 the size of that and they are still separated by almost 4 miles of hundreds, if not thousands of 200-300' footers. Manhattan feels truly endless

My personal comment:
Shanghai : Tomorrow's Center of the World year (2030- 2040)
New York : Today's Center of the World year (2017-2020)
London: Yesterday's Center of the World year 1800's

Shanghai will outshine Hongkong soon

Shenzhen is an amorphous blob with a handful of interesting skyscrapers. NYC beats the shit out of any Chinese city.

Shenzhen's still in rapid growth mode. It's a bit early to dismiss it imo.
