10 min on CTBUH and meta-conscious knowledge of Toronto is all you need buddy.

If you say so but don't expect to maintain credibility with that approach.

I'd like to see these numbers include splits at 150m and 250m. That would give the rest of us a much clearer picture for comparison purposes.

EDIT: I would also like to see an average for each category. For example, Toronto has 180 buildings between 100-199m, averaging X total meters, and Chicago has 276 buildings between 100-199m, averaging Y total meters. Those could be further multiplied out for the total meters in each category. Then we'll really know how close these skylines are, and are going to be in the (near) future.

2) 176 ... / ... planned
3) 6792 high rises/skyscrapers existing

Currently Existing:

1) 6003 highrises (Based on the definition and range of height)


2) 789 Skyscrapers (Based on definition of skyscraper and range of height)

Total: 6792 highrises and skyscrapers

- - - - - - - - - - -

Edit: Added extra cities to get an idea ::

Jersey City: 184 high rises and skyscrapers
Newark: 163 ... and ....
Hoboken: 41
Guttenberg: 4
Fort Lee: 38
Union City: 10
West New York: 14
Edgewater: 6
Fairview: 2
Elizabeth: 26
Yonkers: 51

t(NYC + satellites) = 7280 skyscrapers/high rises *

* High Rises comprising most of the numbers, especially for the Gold Coast. Does not include planned or u/c, this is for existing.
