Guangzhou, China. The central Grand axis is a long linear park lined with 1000ft supertalls with all parking, metro and highways buried underground, and ends in a 2000ft tower

I don't think I'd agree on Guangzhou- I have been there several times, and there are a few items like the view you noted that look really nice/futuristic, but just way too much of the rest of the city looks very run down to be considered at all futuristic. The view of Hong Kong that Greysholic posted is what a good chunk of Guangzhou looks like. That is why I don't think I'd consider any Chinese cities, because they have a few pieces of eye candy but really have a LONG ways to go overall to get to "nice" or "modern" or "futuristic"-looking status.

Edit- this picture is one I took in Guangzhou, showing what much of the city truly looks like:

Chinese cities have great skyscrapers, but I hope the future isn't like their cities. Most Chinese cities have huge run down areas and terrible pollution. I'd go with Dubai, Astana, maybe Tokyo. The most futuristic city would have to be a city mostly built in the last decade or so.

What crazy suggestions!

I would say Pripyat, Ukraine and parts of Detroit, MI, USA look the most what cities in the future will look like.
