I'm happy for new skyscraper development anywhere on this planet. I love very tall buildings.

IThomas: Just let us know when they top out and what Italian city they're in. We'd be more than happy to add them.

Well!!!!
I'm still waiting for your feedback sir ! I wouldn't have expected this childish way from a Moderator!

Another Japanese city that shows a wrong data is Osaka. I don't know from where you get your sources, but apparently you don't have much knowledge about the Japanese urban developments.

Osaka, at the moment, has 5 towers above 200 meters and not 6 like your earlier posts claim.

The current 5 towers in Osaka are:

Abeno Harukas: 300 m
Osaka World Trade Center: 256 m
Kitahama Tower: 209 m
X Tower Osaka Bay: 200 m
ORC 200: 200 m

Tokyo has 24 buildings over 200m so if that's your concern, you are correct.

Ah well, 24 or 23 buildings, it depends. CTBUH says that Sompo Japan building is 200 meters. Actually it's 193 meters to the roof. Most Japanese blogs, however, considers the building a 200 meters tower. Some Japanese count to antenna, and I wouldn't consider it 200 meters if it's indeed counted to antenna. That's why I wanted to keep to the safe side and suggest only 23 buildings instead of 24. Anyways thanks for the link.

me too..i wasn't expecting that much..but the u/c in Manila will definitely catapult it in higher ranks 3-5yrs from now.. and many more approved towers to come..so let's just wait and count..

and there's tons of buildings above 100m or 150m..

I didn't ignore the post about Tokyo, I didn't see it. The data table is a joint collaboration from forum members on SSC. I'm not sure how you expect anyone to be up to date on all construction happening globally. If you can't learn any manners and continue to make defamatory remarks, stop frequenting this thread.

Agree. Only when you try to tackle it does the complexity and work load become apparent. Thankfully we have some great contributors, but unfortunately a couple bad apples who don't appreciate all the hard work that went into it.

You did, obviously! For what reason, I don't want to know. But you still insist that you didn't see it, so you don't lose your reputation here.
I don't think I did something wrong. You just didn't like it when I wrote clear bold words that, of course, targeted only your attitude towards my post.
You, being responsible of this thread, I'm sure you scan it post by post. Not only that, but ironically you quoted my comment of which it stated that Tokyo has 23 buildings. Stop playing the innocent, we are tired of this games.

Anyways!

It's not something worth getting this bent out of shape about.

I didn't see it and you have a lot of nerve coming in here and saying what you have about someone you don't know. I suggest you read SSC policy about respect for others and acceptable behaviour.

WRONG! I quite clearly responded to and quoted post #542 (not post #541). Go look for yourself. Why on earth you would think that I have some vendetta against some random person is a beyond me. I suppose next you're going to tell me that I have a bias against Tokyo?

I spend many hours a week trying to make this thread enjoyable for people only to have some ungrateful person insult me and attack my character? So I can expect no apology from you I suppose?

I didn't insult you man. Maybe I misjudged you. I thought you ignored it, or maybe you read it somehow but weren't sure if my infos were correct and accurate. Anyway, I will believe what you said, and basing on my earlier quotes, I apologize.

Of course I have respect for you like for any other contributor in this forum. I indeed appreciate your hard work. Otherwise, I wouldn't drop a line here at the first hand.

Let's keep going. If there are some new infos I will post them here.

Sincerely!
