i see, so you list the tallest buildings by roof height - i'm good with that. i wouldn't trust wiki about knowing the exact data of skyscrapers, CTBUH is better (i mean it's their job lol)

SWFC roof height: 492m (no antenna or spire) link

ICC roof height: 484m link

Guangzhou International Finance Center roof height: 441m link

London's Heron Tower has topped out at 202m, so London now has 4 200m+ buildings.

Is that what you were taught? You do realize that most people think they live in the best country in the world. Best also has nothing to do with how many skyscrapers a country has. If the US had 10 times fewer people, you'd probably have about 10 times fewer skyscrapers.

There are currently 7 200 m+ towers under construction in Canada. Trump, Four Seasons, Shangri-La, AURA, L Tower in Toronto, while the Bow and Eighth Avenue rise in Calgary. Maybe Canada can start climbing up the ladder a little bit.

I don't know how many Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia have under construction, but when completed those towers could get Canada into 7th.

If anything, it will be interesting. Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia all have burgeoning economies and are building lots of towers. I doubt they will stay at 13, 13, and 11 for long. In all likelihood, we'll see a 5 nation log jam with Australia over the next 2 years.

I'm sure Oz won't be standing still either, but perhaps not building as many as the other 4.

I went through the pages of that old thread I had to figure out where that came from, but it wasn't any help. Dongtan was listed in my thread as a separate entry, but when I looked into it, realized that it's an area of Shanghai. Is this correct?

I added Dongtan's 4 towers to Shanghai's numbers, but now I'm discovering that there's also a tall tower development in South Korea called Dongtan which is probably what the data is pertaining to.

I'm going to message 'citypia' and ask him for verification regarding a 4 tower development by this name in South Korea. The Shanghai data was probably right before I altered it. I'll probably end up changing it back.

It's definitely South Korea, and not Shanghai. I've changed the Shanghai and China numbers back. I've also messaged 'Korea2002'. Hopefully, he/she will chime back with some confirmation regarding roof heights, etc. I'm not satisfied with the integrity of the South Korean data at this point. I'll work to get it right.

That's right. I might request that a mod change it to read 'buildings'. Would you let me know if there are any errors in the Japanese data? I'm measuring to roof height only. I'm adding buildings when they top out.

I admire your passonate work very much.

Dongtan is the south korean city, a part of Hwasung.
There is not many photos of Dongtan right now.
