Why is the Memphis skyline so puny in relation to Nashville, with very little construction?

It's covered up by the Georgia Pacific building, like the Bank of America building is covering up the former AT&T building. You can see a part of Westin here behind the GP building:

^Absolutely jaw dropping... and I'll bet that 90% of Americans have never even heard of it.

Yep, it's part of the biggest city in the world, and alone has more skyscrapers and supertalls than NYC (not counting the other conjoined cities).
A few people who know it think it's still an industrial parody of HK when now it's grown into the bigger, more livable, more powerful city to its neighbour.


old vid, but the bit from 3:00 onwards is the closest to Coruscant Ive seen, whilst 4:12 is very Bladerunner:

Few people know it's also a coastal city with resorts

Astonishing... wow... it boggles the mind to think about the fact that Shun Hing Square, which coincidentally has always been a favorite skyscraper of mine, was really the dominant building on the skyline up until about six or so years ago. I'm not sure the world has ever seen a highrise explosion even close to what we've seen over the past five years in Shenzhen. I've been to many corners of China, but never made it down that way. I have decided it is an absolute must visit... what is that region known as? Surely there is a name for that entire Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Dongguan-Foshan-Macau megaregion?

The Pearl River City is the conjoined contiguous city, now considered the world's largest (pop 42 million). Hong Kong is not included as it has a border and isn't contiguous, separated by a stretch of paddy fields.

The Pearl River Delta is the metro region (55-78 million depending on where you stop counting). It's increasingly known as the Greater Bay Area in the similarity it has to San Francisco (Shenzhen is the Silicon Valley of China).

What's most interesting about Shenzhen is its 'urban villages', the semi-legal midrises built in the 90s, aka handshake houses where blocks are so close together neighbours can do that. Across China these urban villages have been demolished in the world's biggest demolition drive in history, and replaced by the swanky skylines so pictured.

Shenzhen with so little history is the only city saving them. They're famed for their streetlife (very Chinese) and community, and the council has asked each district to doll itself up, attract footfall and hired architects to rebrand - the kind that wards off gentrification/ displacement and preserves the structures and community:

https://www.on-curating.org/files/oc...UABB_after.jpg


There are a whole slew of interesting things being added, and community projects going on - the kind of China one expects rather than moneyed, spotless versions where everyone's addicted to screens. It's the messy, grubby, chaotic version the country has tried so hard to eradicate - yet so atmospheric and alive.

Basically the kind of Chinese streetlife that's increasingly rare outside Hong Kong any more. Catch it before China sanitises it all away like everywhere else.
