Chineses city will definitely go on the top 10 in 2025 or 2050! Guangzhou and Shanghai i think!

Big cities will always stay in Top 10 such as NYC or Hong-kong or Chicago but cities as Kuala Lumpur which i love or Us second cities such as Houston or San francisco will be kick out for sure !

Hope that Toronto will stay in top 10 in 2050 !

Probably Shenzhen, by 2025 houhai should be totally built and qianhai should be more than half done as well, by then Shenzhen should at least have 25 supertalls if not more

I also think that Shenzen will have the best skyline by 2025 and more asian cities will make it to the top 10 list.

No Beijing doesn't have good skyline + very few u/c. So it won't be there. Tianjin won't make it and London will be left behind.

Btw my top 5 by 2025 ~

Shenzen
Shanghai
Newyork
Hongkong
Dubai

By 2050, i think Hongkong and Chicago will be left behind by other cities and won't even make it to the top 10.

New York and Hong Kong will still have the best skylines. They aren't building supertalls intermittently throughout the entire city like the mega cities of China. Whereas in NYC all of the supertalls will likely be located in Manhattan, and around Victoria Harbor in HK.

I think Shenzhen will make it in term of pure density and hight. It has 2 Supertalls completed, 9 under construction, 7 under preperation and over 50 proposed+Qianhai. It will look very modern and great.

I've never been a fan of Shenzhen's skyline, but the sheer volume and scale of development there is surely going to create a good focal point to the whole thing. It will likely look far more impressive 10 years from now.

That's not true...Beijing has many building that is U/C. It is just that there are too few of Beijing forumers who are willing to take photos of the construction site.

Shanghai hasn't got many skyscrapers under construction, because there isn't much space. I don't think it will have one of the best skylines. Shenzhen is the fastest growing city right now and it has got a lot of potential for being the best in ten years. I think New York will remain in the top3, but Hong Kong will be out. Hong kong doesn't have any tall skyscraper U/C and many chinese cities will catch it. Also, it possible that the cities in the Pearl River area will merge and form a megacity with an amazing skyline. If Dubai wins the 2020 expo,(very possible) it will have a big boom, and probably go into the top 3. This is my top3 for 2025:
1-Shenzhen(Or the Pearl River city)
2-New York City
3-Dubai(If it wins the expo)
