Please could you provide some examples of city skylines and architecture that have impressed you so we can better understand your aesthetic perception?

Mumbai has 35 unique, identifiable skyline clusters with some of the world's most diverse architecture, as you can see in many great cities across the world. The skylines of Mumbai blend one of the world's largest collection of Gothic, Victorian, Art Deco, Indo-Saracenic, medieval Persian, Bene Israeli, Contemporary, Hindu and Islamic architecture.

Did you know Mumbai's skylines contain the world's second-largest collection of Art Deco buildings, second only to Miami, USA...

references: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Architecture_of_Mumbai

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_community_of_Mumbai

For example, the magnificient Taj Mahal Palace & Towers built in 1890 has been preserved and is part of one of the city's popular squares today. The monumental Gateway of India was built in 1911, and is a unique combination of both Islamic and Hindu architecture.

The glittering Queen's Necklace (Marine Drive) was reclaimed from the Arabian Sea in the 19th Century and is still true to its name at night.

The dense cluster of Nariman Point was also in reclaimed from the sea in 1940.

Mumbai is the wealthiest city in South Asia (GDP-per-capita, number of US$ billionaires etc) today. Central Mumbai (and its newer Downtown clusters) and the skylines of the other five major divisions of Mumbai contain numerous 21st Century skyscrapers that blend with the other forms of architecture mentioned above, making it one of the world's great skylines.

That's nice and all, but the point of the thread is for people to give their OPINION on the skyline of Mumbai. And IMO it's nothing special.

90 percent of the cities shown in this section do not have any skyline at all...so people like to prefer rating the overall outlook of a city. Me included.

Boss that 8% or 7% GDP growth is also calculated by foreign economic bodies like IMF or world bank or Moran stanley.So If you don't know about economics then please don't say anything on it.

As far as mumbai is concerned it's a very old city as compared to Sanghai or shenzen and the population density is much higher than those chines and other mega cities across the world.So crunch of space is a big issue here.And unlike china india doesn't have the privilege to relocate its citizens against their will as it's a democratic country.There are strict environmental laws which are guarded by civic bodies and environmentalists.So if the govt. wants then also it can't change things up so easily unlike China.

On the other hand those who complain about the pollution let me remind chinese cities are the most polluted ones and hence their govt has been forced to invest billions of dollars to clean them up.If you don't believe me then just google it.

It is very hard to rate Mumbai and generally Indian cities...each year brings more and more tall buildings there! I am sure in several years Mumbai will be 10/10 megapolis

Yes brother as you know the population of India is over 1.2 billion now.So we need to go vertical.hence more and more skyscraper will come up in coming years and to add the cherry on the cake the height limit in many cities has been removed.so we can hope for more and more good news.

Infrastructure aside, the standard of living, population health status, and the income level in China are all significantly higher than India.
