I realize this thread is into its full swing, but let's be honest, we should be subtracting out 600 from each building and calling it "feet above 600". It makes much more sense that way. For example, Boston has 5 buildings between 590'-614'. So somehow the 590' is worth 0 points, but the 601' is worth 601 points. It would be a lot more easier to view the numbers if the 601' was worth 1 point, ie 1 foot over 600' in the skyline. Then for Boston we would say that it has 5 buildings 600'+, worth 0 points, 1 point, 14 points, 150 points, and 190 points for 355' total above the 600' mark in the skyline.

That would really shake up the list. I quickly worked out that Sydney would drop below London, and Miami would drop below Frankfurt.

I find this also very interesting and the list seems quite close to my personal opinion regarding impressiveness. Is the data really correct though? To me it seems that some cities' lists were just copied from wikipedia or somewhere else and include the structural and not the roof height.

Great work nonetheless guys, keep them cities coming

Well I did New York, Chicago and Shanghai. All the towers listed there are to roof. Maybe some smaller towers have some crowns and therefore could be a little bit smaller. But the tallest ones are certainly listed correctly.

And yeah, the best way is to visit the CTBUH (rank, order and #towers) and have a look at the SSP diagrams (for roof height). Some towers need to be checked individually though.
