China could build a new Chicago every year

Skyscraper building boom driven by China - USATODAY.com

If the fast-rising nation continues its current rapid pace of urbanization, China could build a new Chicago every year until 2030 — more than 1,500 new buildings that are over 30 stories high — wrote Jonathan Woetzel, a director at consultants McKinsey & Co. in Shanghai, in a January report "China's cities in the sky."
This is incredible. They're building almost half of the skyscrapers that will be completed within the next 6 years. I just hope they're not expanding too fast. Their economy taking a big hit could hurt other economies as well.

Eye see what you did ther
And there's not a single skyscraper in India. Hopefully, this will make people here jealous and someone will build at least one skyscraper.
