New York alone has well over 90 from what I found.

In my city of Raleigh, NC we have 2, hopefully more to come.

And in the city I am moving to pretty soon, Seattle, there are 15!

GEEZE! I just looked at wiki, and they only went up to 90, that's insane though! And how many are under construction over 150m?

I don't know about Turkey but Istanbul got at least 28 towers over 150m U/C and about 23 projects where excavation works has started/are about to finish!

You can see the projects on this google map, some projects got multiple towers: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=...8c7a22a0&msa=0

Netherlands, 3 in Rotterdam, 151m, 158m and 165m. In The Hague almost 150m, 2 of 146m but don't count off course.

There are several planned above 150m in Rotterdam, but with this European crisis, construction is unfortunately posponed.

9 towers over 150m are U/C, and 7 on hold. 3 towers over 200m are very likely to resume construction this year. Another 4 supertalls will begin construction later this year.

And btw Hong Kong has over 290 buildings over 150m completed.
