    like no other

    The sales pitch promises a residential development like no other.

    Dear all,

    Does "like no other" mean "incomparable" here?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: like no other

    It simply means there is not another one like it.

    "Incomparable" isn't a bad substitution in terms of tone and uniqueness.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: like no other

    Suppose there's John, Matt, and Kelvin.

    And you really think Kelvin is not more handsome than John and Matt,
    so you can say
    'Kelvin is like the others.' (means he is not different from John and Matt)

    But if you think Kelvin is unique, maybe, very handsome.
    you can say
    'He(= Kelvin) is like no other.'


    Hope I get it right.
