Sadly hidden from the main Hong Kong skyline. They'd look great as a showpiece, if they were taller (not that they're particularly short).

I think Dubai can be considered as one of futuristic cities as well. It is a very young city with very modern airports, shopping malls, new roads, brand new resorts, phenomenon skyscrapers and cars etc.

In which way is Tokyo Sky Tree futuristic to today's standrards? It looks like a huge antenna from a 50's sci-fi book.

most towers presented here are not futuristic at all.

futuristic towers should be innovative, unique, ahead of it's time.

to me only really exceptional buildings like lloyd's in london or the commerzbank in frankfurt, to name two, qualify here.
