I'd answer with Seoul. Tokyo looks futuristic but from my experience Japanese society is very much still analog: digitisation of business is limited and it's very cash-based, for instance.

Among more mature cities, London is the most futuristic. Its developments are of a quality unseen in much of the developed world and are striking, bold and innovative, but also blend well into the thousands of years of history that city contains.

Astana, Kazakhstan.

Astana (/əsˈtɑːnə/,[4] US /æsˈtɑːnə/;[5] Kazakh: Астана) is the capital city of Kazakhstan. It is located on the Ishim River in the north portion of Kazakhstan, within Akmola Province, though administrated separately from the province as a federal city area. The 2014 census reported a population of 835,153 within the city, making it the second-largest city in Kazakhstan. Founded in 1830 as Akmolinsk (Russian: Акмолинск) and renamed as Tselinograd (Russian: Целиноград) in 1961, the city has evolved into a cultural and administrative centre of Virgin Lands Campaign.[1] In 1992, it was renamed as Akmola (Kazakh: Ақмола), the original name meaning "white holy place" or "white abundance". On 10 December 1997, Akmola became the capital of Kazakhstan. On 6 May 1998, it received the name of Astana, which means "the capital" in Kazakh. Since becoming the capital, Astana has undergone tremendous growth.[6] It is home to many futuristic buildings, hotels and skyscrapers. In addition to serving as government headquarters, Astana is center for industry, sports, healthcare and education.

I discovered this today.

A rotating tower proposed for Dubai, each floor turns on command to change the view.

Is this the future of skyscrapers?

What looks futuristic today is already out of date. Futuristic cities like Dubai are designed to look futuristic and modern. However, they look like what people think looks futuristic right now.
Just look at Sci Fi movies from the 70s and 80s to see how hard it is to predict what the future will look like.

We don't know what the future will look like. Will we start building traditional architecture again like you see in some Japanese anime? Will our cities be over crowded and poor or sterile and rich or a mix?

The inhabitants of a city are what make a city futuristic. Not the architecture so much.

the city of the future would be an eco city. Think Singapore, where trees on buildings are becoming ubiquitous.

I'm a big Tokyo fan ... but it'll be better when they open Nihonbashi up again. Removing the expressway and building a tunnel is a huge project, but arguably the most iconic bridge in the country shouldn't be hidden by a motorway.

Hands down this image of NY is by far the most realist futuristic skyline in the world today

that triangular building is really what others are thinking a 2050 pyramid will look like but it was done in this time 2017.

I think some of Chicago's buildings, like the Smurfit-Stone Building (yes, I still call it that) and the Lake Point Tower are pretty futuristic looking.

Yes, it looks cool, but there is nothing eco about it.
