Here's what I came up after going through my database for the 8 cities with the most 500-footers, including uc's. There are a lot of 500-footers that do not come up on an Emporis building search, because the exact heights are not known yet. I have included buildings that I estimate are at least 500 ft. I have probably missed several in the Chinese cities, because I do not have complete information. But I think this will give a more realistic count:

Hong Kong - 295 total - 256 completed - 39 uc
New York - 194 - 186 - 8
Dubai - 119 - 28 - 91
Chicago - 98 - 87 - 11
Shanghai - 94 - 72 - 22
Tokyo - 88 - 67 - 21
Guangzhou - 60 - 42 - 18
Shenzhen - 53 - 36 - 17

If I have under-estimated anything, please feel free to add comments.
