fine work, thomas.

shanghai & chicago, dubai has got your number. NYC & HK, you're next. it appears as though dubai won't be satisfied until it has more 500+ footers than the rest of the world combined!

The Hong Kong number is surprising. I remember a few years ago being around 80 u/c. Is it due to a slowdown or a lack of height information for the towers currently u/c

*edit*

nevermind ... checked it out myself

over 260 buildings (~220c/~40u/c) 500+ feet or 50 storeys tall

Hmm. . . interesting. . . my search comes up with 86. . . I'll have to snoop around a bit and see where that elusive building is hiding. . .

great list Tom and wow is Dubai going insane! As for the US there are only 5 cities with 20+ now but I wonder if any approved/proposed projects in other cities will bring their totals to greater than 20.

Calgary actually has 10, not 9. Another (Centennial Place - 41s, 545') is under construction, and as many as 4 more (Arriva42, Jamieson, Penny Lane, The Bow) may start construction in 2007.

Sunny Isles Beach, Florida is only 1 building breaking ground away from joining the club. Wouldn't that be crazy (1 completed, 3 under construction currently)? Quite an accomplishment for a city thats less than 1 square mile (and only 7 years old).

How many people outside of the Miami area have even heard of Sunny Isles by the way?

Miami and Panama City should be sister cities if they aren't already. An interesting way of looking at things. I knew Houston was tall, but didn't think they had the numbers. For Miami, I believe Emporis has a few listed as u/c that aren't really, but it seems like we have them starting once every 2 weeks, so it's probably close.

Brickell I'll have to check but the only one out of the 20 for Miami that isn't u/c is MET 3. Also Emporis has not updated the twin Capital at Brickell towers which are 649' & 607' and started construction this month. So we can add another 2 to Miami's total. As for approved projects by the city I counted 20 more.

Top 10 (US only):

1) NYC : 192
2) Chicago : 97
3) Houston : 29
4) Miami : 27
5) LA : 21
6) SF : 18
7) Dallas : 17
8) Boston : 16
9) Atlanta : 14
10) Seattle : 12

Emporis also lists Met 2 as "approved" when it is already under construction.

Miami : 28

If counting NYC and Jersey City, the total comes to.........drum roll..........187 built and 11 u/c making it numero uno. NWTC towers plus countless proposals with potential supertalls.

Observations

I'm surprised that Toronto and Atlanta have so few 500 ft. buildings. I also think Houston never gets proper respect around here.

3 out of the five in Columbus are government buildings. It is good to be the state capital! (Thanks Cincy, Cleveland, Toledo, etc. for your tax dollars at work!)

That list put Detroit at 6. Actually it has 7 and one only 5 feet short, if you include the flag pole that will put Detroit right at 8.

1. Marriott Hotel Ren. Cen. - 748 ft.
2. Comerica Tower - 620 ft.
3. Penobscott Bldg. - 565 ft.
4. Ren. Cen. Office Tower #1. 506 ft.
5. Ren. Cen. Office Tower #2. 506 ft.
6. Ren. Cen. Office Tower #3. 506 ft.
7. Ren. Cen. Office Tower #4. 506 ft.
8. The Guardian Bldg. - 495 ft.

Detroit has also had at least 3 buildings over 500 feet cancelled.
The Book Tower #2 - 944 ft.
The Fisher Bldg. original plan - 840 ft.
Greektown Casino Hotel plan #2 - 558 ft.

Don't need to go to Jersey!

As some has already stated Emporis is not always up-to-date nor do they have height figures of all buildings under construction, especially residentials.
In NYC I count 9 that will meet the 500 ft criteria currently under construction, they are:

1) 125 West 31 st ( Epic) - 648ft
2) 123 Washington St. ( 4 Albany St.) - 53 stories; 583ft
3) 6-12 Barclay St- 584 ft.
4) 15 Central Park West - 550 ft.
5) Goldman Sachs- 740 ft
6) Beekman Tower - ~860 ft.
7) New York Times - 853 ft. ( spire 1,142ft)
8) Sky House - 588 ft
9) Saya - 544- 604 ft.

The following UC have no reported height but could potentially surpass 500ft.

10) 15 Williams Street - 47 floors
11) Trump Soho - 45 floors
12) River Place - 57 floors
13) 785 8th Ave - 566ft (per NYC DOB)

There is also a building in Queens (near Citi-bank) that is UC and possibly going to be 600ft. but, I've read nothing definitive.
