Excuse me, I really hate say this.
Wikipedia is not a reliable source, especially south korean cities.
Ok. let me allow to simply prove how unreliable wilipedia is.

Wikipedia says that Busan has only completed 64 buildings over 100m.
But According to Emporis, http://www.emporis.com/city/busan-so...ting-buildings
Busan has around 280 buildings over 30 floors. In korea, 30 floors buildings can easily and usually reach over 100m.

Can you believe that a 30 floors building is below 100m?
In your country, on the everage, a 30 floors building is 98m or 99m?

Of course, Emporis is also a incomplete source, For now, I just can't find more reliable source.

I know Wikipedia isn't a reliable source, but what is a reliable source and where is Isaidso getting his information? At least I said where I was getting mine. It's difficult to know what's going on in any particular city unless you actually live there and follow the local real estate publications, but as far as Miami is concerned, there is some real bias against the city going on here and all over these boards. So you don't like the architecture or we don't have any REALLY tall buildings yet, but Miami had a boom in the last decade that gave it the 3rd largest skyline in the US that is still growing and certain people just can't stand the fact that it didn't happen where they are.

If you're a true skyscraper enthusiast, just be happy it's happening and be happy that you'll have something more to look forward to when you come here to vacation, just as I have been for any American city having a skyscraper boom for the past 40 years that following this has been my hobby. That is what makes me such a good photographer of skylines and cityscapes. I've studied them and skyscraper architecture for 40 years, so I know a little about what I"m talking about whenever I say whatever I have to say.

Guys, I am really amazed that so many wonderful forumers are doing hard jobs and contribute to collect DATA.
I really appreciate your work. THANK YOU VERY MUCH
But you first have to check seriouly whether data is accurate or not, not only your own or loved cities but also the others equally.

This is my rough list of south korean cities, based on Emporis.
This is not accurate at all. To get more accurate data, I am still working on it.

Busan
Completed : at least +280
U/C : Unknown
Proposed : Unknown

Seoul
Completed : unknown (so many buildings' height are unknown) maybe at least +282
U/C : Unknown
Proposed : Unknown

Incheon
Completed : at least +198
U/C ; Unknown
Proposed : Unkown

Deagu
Completed : at least +85
U/C : Unknown
Proposed : Unknown

Ulsan
Completed : at least +50
U/C : unknown
Proposed : Unknown

There are so many cities that have buildings over 100m in south korea but I bring here only big major cities in south korea.

To suggest isaidso has a bias against Miami because he didn't include figures until the 3rd page is just stupid. Did you help him out by giving him the numbers for Miami? Did any body else? No. So he got around to Miami when he had time, and if his numbers were slightly out... we'll boo-*******-hoo. That's when it is up to you to politely correct him without losing your shit and fretting that people apparently have an agenda against Miami.

The fact that he went out of his way to list every 100m+ building in cities from around the world speaks volumes. And while he and I often disagree, he doesn't strike me as the kind of person to hold a bias against any city, let alone one which registers in the mind as infrequently as Miami.

and thank you for deleting my post

He includes figures regarding Miami on the 3rd page? I didn't see any mention of Miami until the 6th page. And then I saw St. Petersburg listed first, which I thought was pretty stupid, and it's not stupid of me to suggest he has a bias against Miami because HE DOES! He has actually told me what it is! Thank you very much!

No, but if I had known he was creating this thread when he did I would have helped him.

Then you don't make lists until you have all the data.

I appreciate his effort. Not sure why he would go through the bother since only buildings over 500 feet tall or 152 meters interest me in particular and anything shorter than that is just too much to count, but it was nice of him anyway.

This can be interpreted as bias too as large as the Miami skyline is when it comes to hard statistics.

I do edit profanity at my discretion, especially when it is used profusely because it tends to escalate out of hand if I don't do that.

Another thing! It's not like Isaidso and I don't know each other. We talk about this subject all the time. I know what he doesn't like about the Miami skyline as far as his own personal taste is concerned, and it's true of the personal tastes of a lot of people, just like some people prefer skylines with more height and character.

The Miami skyline is taking on a lot of mass, but the skyline is relatively short and very uniform and therefore very bland to a lot of people. It is still a statistically a pretty huge skyline by American standards and simply too large for somebody like Isaidso to just pass over as often as we've talked about this before and as much as the Miami skyline is continuing to grow.

SSP, Emporis and CTBUH, all are outdated. I think they have run out of money (and time?) to update their database.

New York 748 (CTBUH said 725 building in 12/2010(exclude Newark, Jersey city)
5.Guangzhou ~700 (360 building 100m+ in 2005 , SSC China Source)

6.Tokyo ~460 (CTBUH said 413 building in 12/2010)
Dubai 433
Bangkok 414 (SSP source)

Gaolumi isnt the most reliable of sources. It overestimates about as much as emporis underestimates.

Its the best we got on China cause it is the SCC of China. I don't think it over estimates as much as emporis underestimates. Yes, I know there are trolls that "round up". But I think Gaolumi gives a good general picture of what is going on in China.

Emporis has 465 listed and the Shanghai government says there is +800, literally double the amount. At Gaolumi if you make up enough buildings to double the count someone will notice. I doubt people are even creative enough to "invent" over 50 buildings and there is only so much you can round up. Also the point of this list is the see the general standings, we will never know the exact count.
