Mississauga, Burnaby, Surrey, Port Coquitlam, or New Westminster have 100m+ as well. They are technically separate cities but I didn't count them because they're really just part of metro Toronto and Vancouver.
No no you should count Mississauga and the other cities. They are not part of Toronto city, and greater Toronto is a metropolitan area. Mississauga's buildings should not be counted as part of Toronto

Just as skyscrapers in Noida should not be counted as Delhi's buildings

I think that they all buildings enumerated in Skyscraperpage up to and including 50m.


Looks like it gave me the figure for 100ft instead of 100m. It did look suspicious.

To say truth there is much more. Salerno near Naples, is the southern italian city with more new constructions (designed by Fuksas, Hadid, Bohigas, Chipperfield, Calatrava, Bofill...), among its projects a tower of 30 floors (1st - 2nd version), but I not know real heigh when it will be built. We'll see

Then Padua, Palermo, Messina, Rimini and so on... but currently their projects are blocked due to different problems.

many time ago I proposed the ranking of city considering the combined height of the 5 tallest skyscrapers for determined THE BEST KSYLINE in the world... resulte (in 2004) Honk Kong the best ...but considering the destroyed twin Towers New York rulez on the world. Currently I do not know what city this ranking domains?? Dubai??? mah...

IMO the hight of top 5 buildings doesn't determine the skyline Madrid is a good example - 250, 249, 236, 224, 157 = Total 1116 - better than La Defense or Rotterdam

A few notes:

The list excludes most dead projects, however some like Doon Street Tower may well be dead.

Millharbour schemes have been deliberately left off until more information is available. The current consented schemes would appear to be void as the land has been bought up and a new scheme is intended in their place.

I know there is some vague plan by Lycamobile for Canary Wharf. this has been left off as there is little information.

I've probably missed a few projects off for Stratford and most likely elsewhere

Shell Centre redevelopment heights are hard to ascertain from the planning docs. I've had to use a best guess by looking at the figures on the massing diagrams.

There appear to be around 150 buildings proposed, on hold, under construction or complete in London over 100m tall. I've counted 148 individual projects, but this would be an under estimate as none of the Bishopsgate Goodsyard buildings are included as there isn't enough information. Nor is one of the 54 Marsh Wall buildings, which will likely be over 100m.

There appear to be at least 60 buildings proposed, on hold, under construction or complete in London over 150m tall.

There appear to be 20 buildings proposed, on hold, under construction or complete in London over 200m tall. However this assumes that the two tallest Bishopsgate Goodsyard buildings are over 200m.

---> CTBUH

In it are recorded 688 high-rise buildings with 100m (compl, U/C, T/O).

But, it will be approximately 700 building.
Hong Kong has more Highrises than all the Europe

Why more? We talking about buildings from 100m/328 ft.
And Hong Kong has around 500 buildings (CTBUH).

CTBUH data is not really accurate for cities in Asia (and especially china). For example it names 69 buildings above 100m for Shenzhen with number 68 being the Trecent Tower (office) with 150m and number 69 Neo Tower C (office) with 108m. Come on, seriously? There is no residential high rise between 100 and 150m in Shenzhen? Are they kidding? In cities like Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Chongqing... there are literally hundreds of residential highrises with 30+ stories. Just look on arbitrary photos of these cities and you will find dozens of these high rises with 30-35 stories. Some of the more realistic figures I have read place Shanghai and Shenzhen at 1000+ buildings above 100m and Hong Kong at more than 2000+ buildings.

One of the "hard figures" I recall are those from Shanghai. The Shanghai Building Administrations names 1066 buildings over 30 stories for 2011:

http://www.stats-sh.gov.cn/tjnj/nje1...jnje/E1004.htm

We have 2014 now and most (albeit probably not all) buildings with 30+ floors are also 100m+. So a 1000+ figure for buildings above 100m for Shanghai is quite realistic.

Some databases tend to be accurate for Europe, Canada, the US, Australia, NZ, and Japan. Beyond that the data starts to become suspect. I don't mind using these data bases, but they always need to be viewed with the understanding that most Asian cities' data is incomplete.... often substantially.

CTBUH looks really off for most cities globally. Even north American counts are way off. It lists 76 buildings 100m+ completed or topped out in Toronto. There are 209 by my count.
