numbers from ctbuh.org, may differ slithly from reality

i mean really? Singapore is a freaking city and has several times the amount of buildings my country has

Europe: 102 still not too much.
It's way more for China. Hong Kong and Shanghai alone have at least 500 buildings over 150m. So I would say it's 1862.

Hong kong has like 280, but Shanghai doesn't have that much.

anything much over 1000 is quite an exaggeration

Yes, I stated in my previous post that HK has over 290. And the number 1862 is not exaggerated, well on second thought maybe a little.

Shanghai has about 200 buildings over 150m+, CTBUH says 120, but you can't trust those numbers in this case.

Countless Chinese megacities such as Beijing, Chongqing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shenzen, Wuhan, Tianjin, Harbin, Nanjing, Xi'an, Hangzhou, Harbin, Shenyang, Dalian, Jinan, Changchun and others all have at least 50 - 100 buildings over 150m.

My guess is that the total number for China is somewhere between 1000 and 1200.

Harbin?? No way... I live in Haerbin right now, there are like 2 buildings over 150 meters, maybe. The Dragon tower is the only skyscraper and it's not even a building.

Omg, I thought Harbin had more, seriously. Good thing then that you have first- hand info.

But I still believe that the number is >1000. Simply because of the fact, that no official source can cover all buildings over 150m+ in China. Maybe there's a Chinese website... I'll do some research.

Yeah, on CTBUH you can only find a few of those numerous (generic) residential highrises in Chinese cities and with the construction boom in China it is hard to keep track of all highrises (even in first tier cities like Shanghai there are right now 150m+ projects U/C without threads here in the forum). So I also would guess that the real number of highrises in China is much higher.
