The US is closing in on a meaningless skyscraper milestone

according to the stats in the SSP database:



in 1999, there were 94 skyscrapers >700' in the US:

new york - 29 (including the 2 destroyed WTC twins)
chicago -12
houston - 10
los angeles - 8
atlanta - 5
dallas - 5
philadelphia - 4
seattle - 4
minneapolis - 3
cleveland - 2
san francisco - 2
pittsburgh - 2
boston - 2
denver - 2
charlotte - 1
indianapolis - 1
miami - 1
detroit - 1




since 2000, 87 skyscrapers >700' have been built in the US (including U/C):

new york - 53*
chicago -13
miami - 5
san francisco - 3
philadelphia - 3
los angeles - 1
detroit - 1
seattle - 1
oklahoma city - 1
charlotte - 1
houston - 1
mobile - 1
boston - 1
las vegas - 1
atlantic city - 1



there are several more expected to kick off in chicago next year, and i'm sure even more in NYC, so within the next year, the US will have built more 700+ footers in the first 2 decades of this century than it did in the entire 20th century.

the big difference this time around of course is NYC's current skyscraper building boom. it's off the charts relative to the rest of the nation. chicago is certainly holding its own, and miami is the big new comer to the top of the list



(*) includes three 700+' towers located across the hudson in jersey city.
