It's a real eye opener to know that Hong Kong alone has a greater total than every country on the planet other than China and the U.S.

Agree. That said, Canada and Australia have been building skyscrapers since the very beginning back in the 1880s.

I think it would also be kind of interesting to compare the current list with the same list 5 years ago. Out of the cities on the list Busan probably made the greatest jump since then, followed by Moscow and some Chinese cities.

Really well guessed overall I think!

I kind of wish that people would follow my instructions and only include completed buildings. Barbaric Manchurian included buildings for Tianjin that have been topped out for a year plus but still have no cladding. Two buildings in Yujiapu district for example.

I know the desire the jump the gun and include topped out buildings but the fact of the matter is that those buildings are not finished.

Having said that, I really do appreciate all the hard work everyone has put into contributing to this thread. I know some of these cities are very difficult to do.

ok this is the thing, a spanner in the works if ya like...

what about cities that are fully, physically conjoined (in effect the same urban area, not even separated by rivers?)

Tokyo-Yokohama (Yokohama at left part of Tokyo bay)



Seoul-Incheon (Incheon dark purple, directly parallel at left, by the sea)



Guangzhou (right half) -Foshan (left half)

Does Foshan have many tall buildings?

So this means the list is inaccurate cause some of us have included T/O buildings and some of us haven't?
Someone has to update the list then. I'll do it once I find the time unless noone else will have done it before. I included the info "T/O" after a building name in almost all cases, btw.
On the plus side, we will have a list of completed buildings and completed + topped out ones in the end to compare

A Seoul-Incheon would climb to 25,070. Maybe you could make 3 entries in cases like this:


1. Seoul

1.5 Seoul-Incheon (highlighted in a different colour or starred), and numbered differently so rank doesnt change

2. Incheon
