Guangzhou has 8 completed 300+ buildings plus a 600m Canton Tower as of 2017, a number third in the world only to Dubai and Shenzhen.

Also, 7 of these 300+s and the Canton Tower are concentrated in a rectangle area of about 1 sq km, making it in my opinion the best skyline in the world as of now.

What do you think? How do you rank Guangzhou worldwide?

Top 10 for me and, aesthetically, prefer it to Shanghai and Shenzhen.

In my opinion overall Zhujiang 1st Pazhou and Financial city phase 1 tie.
Zhujiang(I count CITIC Tower as Zhujiang as well) is the biggest of them with like 10 supertalls. Also every building has a unique design.
Financial city is taller overall compared to Pazhou, however its layout and the building design are superior to Financial city. The main tower stands a little to lonely and too many building designs are only glass boxes.
