This thread got me thinking. . . sure there's a bunch of super-tall building going on, but what about everything else. . . I did a quick pivot from a spreadsheet I generated from the CTBUH Skyscraper Center. . . here's a quick count of buildings under construction in sheer numbers for US Cities ~50m+ U/C:
CITY....................BUILDINGS

New York City...........108
Chicago.................34
Miami...................25
Houston.................18
Seattle.................17
Los Angeles.............15
Philadelphia............10
Dallas..................7
Honolulu................7
Jersey City.............7
Boston..................5
Nashville...............5
San Francisco...........5
Austin..................4
San Diego...............3
Sunny Isles Beach.......3
Arlington...............2
Bellevue................2
Denver..................2
Fort Lauderdale.........2
Milwaukee...............2
Minneapolis.............2
Alexandria (VA).........1
Atlanta.................1
Baltimore...............1
Clayton.................1
Durham..................1
Fort Lee................1

Kansas City.............1
Las Vegas...............1
Naples..................1
Newark..................1
Oak Park................1
Portland................1
Rochester...............1
Tampa...................1
Tysons Corner...........1
Yonkers.................1
I'm wondering if there are buildings missing from this list. . . I'd be happy to update the records if someone is willing to provide me with an accurate list based on the city in question. . .

Miami is a on roll. I think so as well.

Code:
1	        MiamiCentral I	-	341 m
2	 	CCCC Tower I	-	326 m
3	 	The Towers	-	320 m
4	 	One Bayfront Plaza	-	320 m
5	 	1201 Brickell Bay Drive	-	318 m
6	 	300 Biscayne	-	317 m
7	 	One Brickell City Centre	317 m
8	 	Sky Plaza West Tower	-	305 m
9	 	World Trade Center of the Americas	301 m
10	 	One River Point 1	283 m
For the tallest proposed. From CTBUH.

We also have One Brickell at 859 ft and One River Point at 928 ft. Two of those. Couple of more 500+ ft towers proposed like Edge on Brickell and Elysee. Some for Sunny Isles along with ones u/c over 600 ft. Even Fort Lauderdale is seeing some action in the 450 ft + category.

Seattle could be a close one. I think the best time that actual foundation will start for any Miami supertall is 2018.

Jersey City as well with 99 Hudson. The Journal Square neighborhood is seeing a dramatic change, and come 2020, it'll be a nice cluster of 700+ ft towers. I expect another tall, 900+ footer for downtown.

I think Newark NJ will see a new tallest for itself in the next 5-10 years. Hopefully sooner.

Is this a joke? Atlanta only has 1 building U/C over 160 feet? Midtown Atlanta has 15 currently U/C alone, but the city limits itself has 21 U/C with 28 more proposed over 160 feet.

Los Angeles has 9 buildings above 500 feet under construction.

Wilshire Grand
Oceanwide tower 1
Oceanwide tower 2
Oceanwide tower 3
Metropolis tower 4
820 Olive
1212 Flower tower 1
Century Plaza tower 1
Century Plaza tower 2

While we don't have exact heights on Century Plaza, they're twin 46 story towers that broke ground not too long ago. They'll be taller than the SunAmerica tower which is 535 feet and The Century which is 481 feet.

The Austin number is way, way off too - as it is for other cities as well. That source is just a bunch of nonsense.

Remember that each skyscraper needs more buildings to support its existence, bringing in even more construction in the cities.

Good that you got the Durham one, but also there are also 3 ~50m+ U/C in Raleigh, and at least 10 in Charlotte.

Don't use CTBUH as a source when it comes to <500ft buildings.

according to SSP's own databsase, there are 64 over 50m in Toronto right now. The shortest in the database is 86m though.. so there are probably far more, especially in the metro.

No it's not a joke. . . I'll research the buildings and add them if they are in fact under construction. . . your link may help. . .

No, the source may not have all the data, but nonsense is the wrong word. . . I'll look at Austin in greater detail, but what other cities are you referring to?

SSP's database criteria may or may not be consistent. . . but I'll look into what may be missing from the CTUBH database. . .

I think I made a mistake. . . CTBUH doesn't have reliable building counts for anything under 100m. . . ugh. . . forget I said anything. . . maybe I'll update my original post with a higher threshold. . .

Its alright, its the effort that matters.

I'm a big fan of the CTBUH. For towers 20 floors or 200 ft or greater, for U.S. cities, they tend to be spot on. What I've noticed is that if a new tower is proposed or modified (when it comes to new height/floor data), might take a week or so for that to be changed. Sometimes not at all, as for example, the Central Park Tower, was listed at 1,775 ft for months, even though it was 1,550 ft without the spire.

They do lack when it comes to China buildings, but I can't blame them or Emporis given that its not so easy to get the data. But they are a good source for U.S. and Canadian Cities.

I think it depends on the city. I do believe that the CTBUH > Emporis; at least when it comes to total quantity of structures for "X" city. But as we've seen just tracking NYC buildings, its a lot of effort. It requires one to be updated constantly. Now imagine for every.

In the end, the good news is that the U.S. is booming.

I agree. Many cities are heavily undercounted (especially Chinese ones), but I can't blame CTBUH for that. There is simply too much data to process and to update on a regular basis.

There's no way this building boom is bigger than those that occurred in the 70s and 80s.

Dallas is long due for another 500+ skyscraper. It's only built 1 since the 80's. Even if we lower the height to 400 feet, it still falls way short when compared to it's regional peers. Considering how hot it's been for so long, it definitely has potential.

400 feet U/C or Built since 2005:
Miami - Too many to count
Houston - 14
Atlanta - 13
Austin - 12
Dallas - 3

I am completely overwhelmed by the knowledge and efforts of all who post on this site . So please allow me a unimportant , ill informed
biased opinion about the above mentioned cities .

Both cities have fluctuated with regard to population counts over the past ..... 50 years ?? . I think ... However , I believe Jersey City has a
much greater chance of seeing something over 1000' long before Newark does .

Jersey City is half the size of Newark in land area but currently in 2nd. place by a mere 15/16 thousand residents . The pace at witch JC is
growing leads me to believe they will switch places ..... maybe by the 2020 census . Plus , being a stones throw from NYC , the chance of
something really big punching a hole in the atmosphere looks better in JC than in Newark ...... But my guess is unimportant and ill informed .

There is a way, because it's true, at least in terms of supertalls and 500+ footers.

There was no point in time in the '70s or '80s where there were 12 supertalls simultaneously U/C in the US.

There was no point in time in the '70s or '80s where there were 98 500+ footers simultaneously U/C in the US.

I'm sure the 70s/80s and probably 20s had a larger stock of buildings go up, but the one going on now is impressive.

Dan - Is this present boom still the biggest if you removed NYC?
