As we talk about skyscrapers, height is important, because small height = no skyscraper But to me there are 2 more important things for impressive effect of skyscraper - surroundings/skyline (the more other skyscrapers around the better) and design. These 3 factors are significantly inclusive in SH and NY too No.1 skyscraper city in the world is Dubai with 18 supertall buildings incl. BK. China is No.1 skyscraper state in the world and has more supertall buildings U/C than all countries together.

That last picture really shows how massive this building really is. Although I may not like the overall shape of the building, I have to say the cladding and the view from the bottom are just totally amazing.
