Well, the market is pretty much satisfied for now. Also keep in mind that the Chinese government likes to invest in Shanghai, Shenzhen and other major cities. They don't want Hong Kong to stand as the only financial capital anymore. All those supertalls and megatalls are subsidized, and mostly office or mixed - use. That's why New York stands out so much, where residential towers break 400m+. There is some residential construction here in Hong Kong too, but the buildings are mostly in the 100 - 200m range, and sadly there's nothing of architectural merit.

There are 27 completed skyscrapers in South Korea.
A reference, but there are others-

We're not including T/O skyscrapers; only the completed skyscrapers make the cut in this thread. The link you provided for Goyang is for a T/O skyscraper, not completed yet. There are still cranes working at its top.

USA-166 buildings (442m)
UAE-73 buildings (747m)
South Korea-35 buildings (305m)
Japan-31 Buildings (300m)

6.Australia-20 buildings (297m)
Singapore-18 buildings (280m)

Panama -11 buildings (284m)
Thailand -10 buildings (304m)
Saudi Arabia -9 buildings (601m)

Note: some country uses the height of the roof, to be fair, don't consider antenna and spire
I've highlighted the errors in your list; explained as below:

(1) How is the tallest building in the UAE 747m high? 585m is the top floor height of the Burj Khalifa.

(2) How are there 35 completed skyscrapers in South Korea? There are 27 completed skyscrapers; we aren't including T/O skyscrapers, otherwise the numbers for most countries in the list would change. Also, the top floor height is 277m for Northeast Asia Trade Tower.

(3) The top floor height for Japan is 273m (Yokohama Landmark Tower).

(4) There are 22 completed skyscrapers in Australia, and not 20.

(5) 12 completed skyscrapers in Singapore, and not 18.

(6) Indonesia has 16 completed skyscrapers, and not 18.

(7) Canada has 19 completed skyscrapers and not 15.

(8) The top floor height for Malaysia is 379m (Petronas Towers).

(9) Both are incorrect for the Philippines: there are 15 completed skyscrapers and not 13. The top floor height for the Philippines is 241m (PBCom Tower).

(10) Both are incorrect for Qatar: there are 9 completed skyscrapers and not 12. The top floor height for Qatar is 238m (Aspire Tower).

(11) There are 17 completed skyscrapers in Panama, and not 11.

(12) Thailand has 13 completed skyscrapers, and not 10.

(13) Saudi Arabia has 10 completed skyscrapers and the top floor height is 559m (Makkah Royal Clock Tower).

Although there's a lot of 200 m + buildings are on the way
because Greenbelt Lorenzo Tower 185m at roof heigh (57F)
15 One Corporate Centre 195 m at roof heigh (45F)

so Gramecy has just 250m !

Thanks for your reply, univer.

You may have a point; however, I still count 13 for Thailand.

Please could you share the names of the skyscrapers you do count among the 10?

Wow megacity30, you really do point out a lot of people's "errors" with their lists. However, you do not provide any proof with the numbers you "prove" them wrong with.

Two points that I know you are indeed wrong about is the roof height of Burj Khalifa is indeed 747 meters. Any close look at the SSP diagram will show this is where the spire starts.
The other point you are wrong about is saying the Imperial Towers are 249 meters tall. First of all they both have spires connected to open 'crowns'. The true roof height is clearly 210 meters.

I'm sure you will deny these numbers but any reasonable person can discover for themselves that these are the correct numbers.

I do point out a lot but others point out to me a lot as well.
The list I compiled is by no means the final one but I did spend some good time on it. I welcome challenges to it, as already mentioned in my original post here, so that we can eventually obtain the most accurate list.

Well, the top roof height (highest habitable floor) is indeed 585 m. Above this height is an architectural spire that also contains maintenance levels.
A valid reference: http://skyscrapercenter.com/dubai/burj-khalifa/

Here you are correct. The true roof height is clearly 210 m. This one is my error. I will update it now. Therefore, the tallest completed skyscraper(s) in India are actually the three skyscrapers Lodha Bellissimo A, B & C. Therefore, the highest roof height for India should be 222 m.

Let's agree I'm not unreasonable...
Please let me know if you see any other errors.

I wasn't implying that you were unreasonable, sorry. However, I still have to disagree with you regarding Burj Khalifa because you used CTBUH as your source but I was referring to roof height. CTBUH doesn't use roof height as a height measurement at all anymore so that argument simply doesn't work. Me and other users seek to find roof heights of the tallest buildings on Earth and include enclosed crowns in that height but not open parapets, antennaes, nor spires.

I understand Burj Khalifa is a hard case to determine roof height and Kingdom Tower might also be the same way.

I have a challenge for you, however, which is to try and determine the roof height for SPG Global Tower A in Suzhou, SPG Global Tower B in Suzhou, and Shimao Didang New City Tower in Shaoxing.

These all are over 200 meters tall but determing actual roof height is very difficult because they all have spires and have recently been completed so information regarding their heights are sparse.

Well, the top roof height (highest habitable floor) is indeed 585 m. Above this height is an architectural spire that also contains maintenance levels.
A valid reference: http://skyscrapercenter.com/dubai/burj-khalifa/

Here you are correct. The true roof height is clearly 210 m. This one is my error. I will update it now. Therefore, the tallest completed skyscraper(s) in India are actually the three skyscrapers Lodha Bellissimo A, B & C. Therefore, the highest roof height for India should be 222 m.

Let's agree I'm not unreasonable...
Please let me know if you see any other errors.
Which are other 200 m buildings from India

A reference, but there are others-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...in_South_Korea

We're not including T/O skyscrapers; only the completed skyscrapers make the cut in this thread. The link you provided for Goyang is for a T/O skyscraper, not completed yet. There are still cranes working at its top.
What if your reference, wikipedia is WRONG ?

1. Where are buildings in Bucheon and Daegu?
Those are already completed long ago but those are NOT LISTED on wikipedia.
There are lots of MISSING BUILDINGS on wikipedia!
How can you so sure about wikipea, even though you ignore the opinion of the other forummer?

2. I find there are ghosts towers on wikipedia. That really makes me laugh.
There are NO such a thing centum fiestar in Busan. That was the cancelled project long ago. I used to say there is no centum fiestar here and there many times but it still exists as ghosts even on wikipedia because no one care it
The funny thing is the pictures under the name of Centum Fiestar are WBC palace twin towers which is 265m.
Wrong name, wronng number of building, wrong pictures and wrong height on wikipedia.
Who made this info on wilipedia anyway?
There are 3 CENTUM # STAR buildings and 1 CENTUM # CENTRAL building over 200m.

Yes, wikipidea is totally wrong about data of south korean buildings
If you don't believe it, I will prove it.

Ah, one more thing,
If you look at the rank on wikipidea carefully, you would find the same ranks
For example, there are 4 buildings at No.10 spot and at No.17 spot.
There are 2 buildings at No 23 spot.
Do you understand what I am trying to say to you?
27 is NOT the number of buildings, which is the ranking on wilipedia. Do you get my point?
If there are four buildings with the same height, they have just 1 ranking and are positioned at only one spot at the ranking on wikipedia.
Please, look at wikipidea carefully, even though this info is totally wrong, you would notice the number of building are are NOT 27.
Count the number of buildings again, not looking at the rank.

Here is the DATA you provide and do believe lt without doubting it
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...in_South_Korea

3. You calculate only the completed buildings but the thread starter, isaido, includes T/O buildings as long as they are over 200m and topped out already.
Look at this. Please back the first page and read carefully what the thread starter said.
Are you making new rule of this thread?

Lastly, the buildings in Goyang already finnish the exterior work. There is no more cranes at the top NOW.
The picture was taken almost 6 months ago. If you read it carefully, you would notice it.

Ok, I prove how wikipedia is wrong for the one who do believe the data wikipedia.

1.Where are the I'PARK towers in Busan on wikipidea?
The buildings on the left in this picture are I'park towers which has 3 buildings over 200m. Of course, they are already completed.
image hosted on flickr


2.Hyperion in Seoul has 3 buildings over 200m.
But there is only one on wikipedia.

3. There are many things to say and correct the data on wikipedia but I will stop here.
Because my goal is just proving how wikipedia is WRONG.

BTW, I think it is NOT forumers' fault who easily believe Data on internet, It is definetely wikipedia's fault. They have to check their info first.

Yeah, I don't want to force you to believe me but you have to check it before you believe something on internet. That's it.
I don't care how many buildings are in south korea anyway.

Hey citypia! Just like to say thank you for your help before with this thread. Busan is looking amazing!

Hey 'megacity'. I found the thread quickly took up all my time with all the verifying required. I had hoped to tackle it again, but it's a bit of a full time job.

Btw, if you plan on maintaining the thread a word of advice: keep separate tables for each city so when people mention 'new' topped out buildings you know if you've added them already of if its one you missed. Good luck!

One question. How did you get Canada jumping from 13 to 19. My table reveals the following:

Canada (completed 200m+ buildings: roof height)


01. First Canadian Place, Toronto, 298 m
02. Scotia Plaza, Toronto, 275 m
03. Commerce Court, Toronto, 239 m
04. The Bow, Calgary, 236 m
05. Trump Tower, Toronto, 237 m

06. Brookfield Place, Toronto, 227 m
07. TD Centre, Toronto, 223 m
08. Suncor Centre West, Calgary, 215 m
09. Bay-Adelaide, Toronto, 215 m
10. Shangri-La, Toronto, 214 m

11. Eighth Avenue Place, Calgary, 211 m
12. Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, 209 m
13. Bay-Wellington, Toronto, 207 m
14. 1000 de la Gauchetiere, Montreal, 205 m


AURA, L Tower, ICE I, ICE II, and One Bloor are still U/C so shouldn't be counted yet. South Korea is definitely wrong as well. They were already at 42 buildings over a year ago. Are you sure the buildings from those other countries you added to are completed + roof heights? Would you post your tables for Panama, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, and Vietnam so we can make sure its correct?

The Philippines figure looks really suspicious. They have 15 buildings that are 200m+ according to wikipedia, but only 8 that are 200m+ to roof height! The Indonesia, India, and Vietnam data looks wrong as well. This is a roof height thread.

You can use the template above to keep things looking uniform.
