If the stats are from Emporis you could just as well delete all the Chinese cities from the ranking since Emporis' highrise coverage of those cities is minimal and outdated.

rasslcub,
This "city vibe" of which you speak exists in pretty much all Euro, Asian and South American cities over with a population over 100.000.

I did not want to get into this discussion due to the stupidity of the thread justifying one city supremacy over the other city because it has a couple of buildings with more floors, even though it could be an ugly residential tower built on the same platform/podium as 2 or 3 other buildings...(cough- HK)

Wikipedia-
For example, one site, which ranks Hong Kong at number one and New York City at two, notes that it included almost four times as many buildings in Hong Kong's scoring (2,939) as it did for New York (849). Had they chosen 500 feet (152 meters - or about 40 stories) as the cutoff point, New York would have had 184 buildings included, and only 116 for Hong Kong, clearly changing the results. To further complicate matters, many Hong Kong skyscrapers have a common base or podium of several stories that then split into separate towers. If one counts each separate tower column as a separate skyscraper like Emporis does, the count changes again for Hong Kong only, rising to 186

^ don't know how old that list is but it has Miami at 5 buildings over 492 ft. when it reality it has 10 now with another 23 u/c. I wouldn't use it as a updated reliable source.

I see many people getting off topic when it comes to this thread. . . in regards to the "500 Club". . . it is what it is. . . it's a numbers game and purely academic. . . it in no way reflects anything other than what it's meant to. . . that is simply buildings in a city that are taller than 500'. . . nothing more. . . nothing less. . .

Staff. . . everyone on this forum with a half a brain knows that Emporis numbers for most Chinese cities are under-represented. . . no need to remind us of that fact. . . feel free to update us with any inside information regarding building heights you are aware of in the mean-time. . . thanks in advance

Everyone else please take your comments regarding "quality of life" issues to the bleeding heart forums for those people who want to hear about it. . . if you aren't clear as to why I originally created this post, please re-read my first thread or the first paragraph in my latest post. . .

Any comments otherwise will be met with the unforgiving wrath of Steely Dan. . .

ciao

Tom

Yeah, I'll see if I can find anything more reliable (but it's so hard to keep track of, even for Chinese people, considering the huge amounts of development in all Chinese cities).

SSP Diagrams lists 108 buildings (completed and u/c) in Shanghai, and there are many missing on that list (where's Donghai Plaza for example!?) as well. I found another list on a Chinese forum with 44 buildings over 200 meters completed or u/c.

We can safely say that there are way over hundred buildings in Shanghai over 500 feet, probably closer to 150 - and of course many, many more to come considering all the construction.

I haven't even bothered checking other Chinese cities such as Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Chongqing which have tons of tall buildings.

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
