we were talking about supertalls (>300m), right ?
and I guess in this category HK is still the leader in Asia right now except of Dubai ?!
HK: 6
Guangzhou: 5 (partly not finished)
Shanghai: 3 or 4 ?
Mumbai will take the cake in the future with all the proposed projects.

I thought One Island East was a supertall. Just looked on CTBUH, I guess not. Time to fix Wikipedia as well.

CTBUH doesn't consider SEG a supertall.

CTBUH says SEG Plaza is ~291m/957ft. Height to tip is ~355m/1126ft. I assume that height is for the (antennaes?).

Man, I gotta get my files updated. A lot of my own info is out of date. That's annoying.

It's always the question: spire or antenna?
Regarding skyscraperpage SEG has spires, so they add to the official height.

Why doesn't Shanghai have more proposed supertalls than other Chinese cities? I'm fairly surprised, it is the biggest city in China or not? It's time for it to prove itself.

Well, SH has very high property prices and in terms of economic growth there is more potential left in Guangzhou and Shenzhen.
Nevertheless I'm pretty sure in the future there are still some supertalls for SH to come, but after the completion of Shanghai Tower, White Magnolia and several other skyscrapers/highrises, I think the market for office space in SH will be saturated for a while (but of course China has proven us wrong so many times ).

BTW Shanghai has much more buildings over 200m than those other cities (except HK). Fewer supertalls, but more skyscrapers.

How can you compare HK with GZ? we are talking about Chinese in process of development.
The city sizes are completely different.

If you have to compare HK with GZ, alright, in HK at least you don't have the insecurity you have in GZ.

Give another more rational example.

We in SH, don't need to build more skyscrapers to call the attention of anyone, we are the economic capital of China, by knowing that, is ENOUGH
