With the world of information that is the internet at everyone's fingertips it is amazing how ignorant a lot of people still are.
Actually, not every body hits all the forums to know everything there is to know. With the world of information that is the internet, there is a lot of information to process.

Exactly. There are a myriad different links to information and he's assuming everyone hits the same ones he does. He's also assuming everyone's a skyscraper enthusiast who's perused the pages of SSC and SSP for years. Some people are just having their first look.

I think the answer depends on your definition of highrise, but, in any case, your answer will be either Mexico City, NYC, or Toronto.

It's tough, though, because there is no such thing as a comprehensive skyscraper database. Emporis comes closest, but it's horrible for Mexico City, and mediocre (at best) for NYC. I don't know if it's good for Toronto or not.

But I do know you can't go by Emporis numbers to get the answer.

What's behind the SF boom, office or residential demand? What cities in the midwest do you expect a construction boom from energy?

Agree with most of that. Mexico City seems to get forgotten, but there's a lot happening there. A year ago I would have added Panama City to the list, but things seem to have cooled off considerably.

I don't use Emporis at all. I've found it to be horribly out of date and I'm more interested in 100m+ buildings than buildings 12 floors or higher. For 100m+ buildings, it's Toronto by a wide margin. For 300m+ buildings, I believe New York is the only city building them. For 12 floors or higher, its likely Mexico City or Toronto.

Right now SF is experiencing a highrise boom primarily to meet residential demand. Like New York City, SF is beyond maxed out in land, and can only really grow upwards. However, the tallest tower being built in SF is the Transbay Terminal, which is a mixed-use project incorporating the transportation system, and will be the tallest on the West Coast until LA's Wilshire Grand is built.

Due to the natural gas boom, I believe that many cities under the Barnett shale (Texas) and Marcellus shale (mainly Ohio, Pennsylvania, W. Virginia, and upstate New York) formations will explode, especially cities like Dallas, Houston, Pittsburg, Oklahoma City, etc. Austin is experiencing one of the biggest per-capita highrise booms in the country, and will look dramatically different in the next decade. Texas was fortunate enough to escape the worst of the recession, and is poised for major projects.

From what I've been able to glean from these pages and more, Toronto definitely has more going on right now than any other North American city. Then, I would say New York and then Mexico City. Miami has a lot coming up, but nothing like the madness of the last decade. You will see taller individual projects coming to Miami in this decade.

Houston is in the middle of a boom, but my favorite is Seattle - the whole city is under construction!

Seattle is definitely in midst of a building boom, with Amazon planning for 3 500' towers. Most of the other buildings are apartment towers, hotels and another major office tower downtown projected for an October 2013 start. Due to height restrictions, the tallest will only be about 660'.

Also, Seattle will be building a new basketball stadium near downtown to accommodate the Kings' move from Sacramento!

Don't forget Los Angeles where there are several high-rises- including what will be the tallest west of the Mississippi- under construction!

Yep! LA heating up, Denver hot as hell but not many high rises as yet, even Atlanta is starting to stir. Counting college dorms, Philly's on a hot streak!

As was previously said, without a reliable data base, it is difficult to know for sure unless you painstakingly go through all the different development sections of all the cities on the website and piece it together yourself. From what I've been able to pull together, and as was also said earlier, it's definitely Toronto overall with New York putting up more of the taller stuff. Miami has a lot planned that hasn't actually made it to construction yet, but with still a nice chunk of construction going right now in Brickell CityCentre, Brickell House, and Millecento with the 851-feet Panorama tower starting this summer.

4-5 years down the road. How might skylines stack up from a purely quantitative POV if all buildings currently under construction are completed and the inventory of proposals on the table are also realized? I used 150m+ buildings as a bench mark and omitted buildings listed as 'On Hold'. No data was available for Mexico City or Panama City. North American cities in bold.


Cities with over 50 Buildings 150m+: Built, U/C, Proposed

01. New York: 287
02. Dubai: 195
03. Hong Kong: 188
04. Bangkok: 138
05. Shanghai: 137
06. Tokyo: 135
07. Chicago: 134
08. Manila: 133
09. Shenzhen: 123
10. Toronto: 109

11. Mumbai: 104
12. Guangzhou: 102
13. Seoul: 87
14. Singapore: 87
15. Chongqing: 83
16. Jakarta: 83
17. Kuala Lumpur: 81
18. Nanjing: 71
19. Istanbul: 64
20. Melbourne: 57

The list changes quite a bit if one uses 100m+ buildings instead.

05. Tokyo: 447
06. Toronto: 375
07. Manila: 347
08. Dubai: 338
09. Chicago: 338
10. Seoul: 237

11. Guangzhou: 234
12. Kuala Lumpur: 230
13. Singapore: 227
14. Jakarta: 220
15. Mumbai: 197
16. Istanbul: 182
