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!

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

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

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.

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!)

Miami has 20 500 + under construction?......that's insane....and they must all be residential.....no wonder they call it a bubble about to burst. I am surprised at Toronto and Boston. Toronto's buildings must all be 495 and Boston's 505.

Cool.

Right now Austin only has one completed, but has another one under construction.

And we have atleast 2 more proposed. There's also the possibility of up to three more in the works.

Houston and Dallas have a few in the works, too. Atleast 2 for each. By 2008 Fort Worth will have atleast 3.


Tom, remember back in February when you were in Austin and you were talking about cities with buildings of 35 floors or more, built, under construction and proposed? At that time Austin had 4 proposed. We now have 7, and with a few towers that are in the works, we could have as many as 9 or 10.

Austin built, under construction and proposed buildings:

Two 700-799 foot buildings.
Two 500-599 foot buildings.
Five 400-499 foot buildings.

Toronto has 12 built with 7 under construction (or 11 and 8) with 2 to 3 to start next year and another dozen or so planned. It's only low in comparison to New York & Chicago

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

Data for Paris are wrong.

Completed buildings above 500 feet in Paris:
  1. Tour Maine Montparnasse (1972) : 689 feet.
  2. Tour Total (1985) : 614 feet.
  3. Tour Areva (1974) : 604 feet.
  4. Tour Gan (1974) : 587 feet.
  5. Tour Alicante (1995) : 548 feet.
  6. Tour Chassagne (1995) : 548 feet.
  7. Tour EDF (2001) : 541 feet.
  8. Coeur Défense (2001) : 528 feet.
  9. Tour AXA (1974) : 522 feet.
  10. Tour Adria (2002) : 509 feet.
  11. Tour Egée (1999) : 509 feet.

Buildings above 500 feet under construction in Paris :
  1. Tour T1 (2007) : 607 feet.
  2. Tour Granite (2008) : 600 feet.

So even without counting Tour Ariane (499 feet), we have:
  • Built : 11
  • U/C : 2
  • Total : 13
