World map of all 250+m / 820+ft buildings (completed, u/c & proposed)

Inspired by the 500+ feet thread, I originally planned to make a map with all 500+ feet buildings in the world. But it soon became obvious that there are far too many in Asia to put them all in a map. 1000+ft on the other hand would have meant that there is only a handful of cities outside of Asia which are marked on the map, so I settled on a 250m (820ft) limit.

It is quite impressive to see how China is totally dominating the skyscraper race these days with Shenzhen having by far the most 250+ meters buildings completed, u/c or proposed.
Another huge surprise was that not a Chinese city but Mumbai has more 250+ meter buildings u/c at the moment than any other city worldwide.

Dark Blue = Completed
Red = U/C
Pink = Proposed
6 pixel = 1 building

Nice job.
one country rules them all.
The opposite of political correctness is not unvarnished truth-telling. It is political expression that is careless toward the beliefs and attitudes different than one’s own. In its more extreme fashion, it is incivility, indecency or vulgarity. These are the true alternatives to political correctness. l
