Is there some law against it???
France only has 2. Skyscrapers have historically been built in North America, Asia, and Australia. It's only now we're seeing them in Europe and elsewhere. India doesn't have one either.

This is a compilation of buildings that have a roof height of 200 m or more that are completed/topped out. I'm still awaiting input from Indian members. The twin Imperial towers (210 m each) may have topped out, so maybe India has 2 now.

Sure, I did not want you to take these u/c towers into the list, just wanted to say that India / Mumbay could jump into the list in a very impressive way within few years (going straight into Top 5 in Asia)...

I do think Mumbai will be in the top 20 within a couple years and maybe top 10 a few years later.

So the buildings for Manila are as follows? GT International and the 3 Greenbelt buildings all have a roof height below 200 m.

1. The Gramercy 302 m
2. PB Com Tower 241 m
3. Petron 210 m
4. 1322 Golden Empire Tower 203 m
5. Philamlife 200 m

Am I missing any? I seem to have Manila at 7, but I only count 5.

Could you get the roof height for those 9 buildings so that I can add it. That Moscow State University building might be tricky because I've only been able to get information about it's architectural height which includes its spire.

I think Abu Dhabi needs an update, 5x Etihad towers and Sun Tower plus the yet existing Sky Tower lets them go straight into "on the bubble" with 7 Towers, UAE then have 70 Towers as a country.

I guess your right. I do remember a time when Australia's 3rd city Brisbane had more skyscrapers than London. That has now changed of course. Still when you look at mega cities like Sao Paulo and the sprawl of skyscrapers extending in every direction you wonder why they haven't broken the 200m mark.

London's coming on like gangbusters. They might even make the top 10 in a decade or two. It's such a big global centre and land is scarce. Now that they've decided to allow tall, it's inevitable that they'll one day join the ranks of big skyscraper cities. Btw, I think there was a time when Canada had about 4-5 cities with more skyscrapers than London. Times change!

Sao Paulo is increasingly the elephant in the room. I'm very interested to see what they'll build. It will happen.
