Yes it's Toronto.

You've been very courteous and polite. That goes a long way in my book. If you have questions or encounter problems, private message a moderator and we'll do our best to help you or resolve the issue. You can easily spot a moderator; their SSC name on the left margin is in grey and italics.

2014 Year in Review: Record Completion Total

Quote:
At the beginning of each year The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat publishes a study and report (download PDF) that examines all 200m+ tall buildings that were completed during the previous year. Click the tabs below to see charts related to each topic. The charts and descriptions are interactive so you can click on them to view more information on The Skyscraper Center, our tall building database.
Quote:
Note: Only countries with at least two completions in 2014 are included in this chart. One tall building 200m+ in height was also completed during 2014 in these countries: Chile, Kuwait, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Vietnam.

Once again, for the seventh year in a row, China completed the most 200-meter-plus buildings (58). This represents 60% of the global 2014 total, and a 61% increase over its previous record of 36 in 2013.

The Philippines took second place with five completions, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar share position three with four completions, and the United States, Japan, Indonesia and Canada tie for fourth, with three completions each.

Japan marked its first entry into the supertall stakes with the completion of the 300-meter Abeno Harukas in Osaka, becoming the country’s tallest building.

This was the "tallest year ever" by another measure: The sum of heights of all 200-meter-plus buildings completed across the globe in 2014 was 23,333 meters – setting another all-time record and breaking 2011’s previous record of 19,852 meters.
New York did well with 1WTC, 4WTC and One57, the rest of the U.S. not so much (not a single 200m+ building completed in 2014).

Quote:
List of 2014 Completions

who built the most skyscrapers in 2014?
Here is the answer


Skyscraper construction total hits record in 2014

Quote:
Ninety-seven skyscrapers, including three in Canada, were completed around the world in 2014, setting an annual construction record, according to a new report.

The total height of those 97 towers is 23,333 metres, another record.

The previous annual record was set in 2011, when 81 skyscrapers were erected, with a total height of 19,852 metres.

The study, by Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, a non-profit with headquarters in Chicago, examines buildings measuring 200 metres high or more.
..snipped..

Quote:
Asia led skyscraper construction last year

China led the world in 2014 skyscraper construction for the seventh year in a row, according to the report. Fifty-eight buildings over 200 metres were built in China, or 60 per cent of the global total. Seventy-four skyscrapers were completed across Asia, and the Philippines came in second place with five towers completed.

Qatar and the United Arab Emirates both completed four skyscrapers last year, earning a third-place title. Canada completed three skyscrapers, tying for fourth place with the U.S., Japan and Indonesia.
....
Quote:
The number of tall buildings being built this year could eclipse 2014’s record, says the report.

The council expects between 105 and 130 skyscrapers to be completed in 2015, with China once again leading the way
in summary of 2014
1. China - 58
2. Philippines - 5
3. Qatar/UAE - 4
4. Canada/US/Japan/Indonesia - 3

Where is Chicago? It has another 3 potential supertalls down the line despite slow development.

In 2025 I wouldn't put any city ahead of NY since it will have the most supertalls in the world outside Dubai. Dubai though, is a small city in comparison so they balance out.

It's been awhile since I posted a list for this thread. My tentative list is:
1. NYC (beast of the Americas)
2. Shenzhen (beast of China)
3. Dubai (beast of the Middle East)
4. Hong Kong (stalled at the moment)
5. Chicago (at least 1 supertall in the works)
6. Shanghai (would be higher if there were more development news)
7. Toronto
8. Miami (assuming supertalls are built)
9. Kuala Lumpur
10. up for grabs; Seattle, San Francisco, Singapore, Chinese cities
