To show how big Toronto will be by about 2020 (plus more than this, these are just projects we know about)

Blue is currently U?C
Yellow is a Condo in pre-construction sales
Red is proposed





only supertalls are the two red ones by the CN Tower, at 326m each.

several buildings (4+) in the 290m range though.

Jakarta skylines




Signature tower will be the tallest building in Indonesia. Construction will begin August 2014


There are 2 supertall U/C, Cemindo tower and Thamrin nine
Cemindo tower (300 M, 63 FL) = here, here(photo by VRS)
Thamrin nine tower 1 (330 M, 71 FL) = here, here(photo by Abel77)

Also there are so many proposed supertall project in Jakarta, like Jakarta tower, BDNI centre, Pertamina tower, and still many proposed, preparation project in Jakarta

so i think in 2025 Jakarta skyline will be HUGE. sorry there is no illustration

That is a good overview. NY's skyline is not just great because of the number of towers but also its incredible density.

It is also a skyline that has been evolving for over a century now and continues to evolve.

Don't feed the troll! Let's not beat that dead horse anymore than we have already!

Hunser, that's an excellent list you compiled, although I feel like a few of them belong in different spots (Conde Nast and NYTT for starters).

To call NYTT a supertall is an absolute insult to significantly larger buildings that just miss the cut, such as 4 WTC, Comcast Tower in Philly, and First Canadian Place in Toronto. (especially that last one) It would only be the third tallest building in my city to the roof, and yet would be considered by far the definitive tallest because of a stick.

Here they are ordered by their official height. (unsure how to get that last building out of the diagram) Not to you, but in general, gtfo with NYTT as a supertall.

Yes, please! That's not even a very good photo of London. BTW, the CTBUH does count spires as long as it's an integral part of the building's original design. They don't count antennae, but imagine the Empire State Building and the John Handcock Center without them.

Anyway, this is Brickell CityCentre, a massive project currently under construction in the space near the river in the photo below. The developer has purchased more property extending the project all the way to Brickell Avenue in our financial district, so we don't even know yet how much larger this project is going to be.

Miami World Center is another massive project going up behind the phalanx of giant condos on Biscayne Blvd. This line of skyscrapers will also include Zasha Hadid's first skyscraper in the western hemisphere, the one in the middle of the line.





http://www.miamiworldcenter.com/









Brown=Retail
Red=Office
Pink=Hotel

Biscayne Beach and Element will fill in all the space along the bay on the north end of the skyline and will give the Miami skyline an incredible spread from north to south along the bay. All these projects include buildings over 500 feet tall.

Then our mixed-use supertall One Bayfront Plaza at 1,010 (our height limit) is scheduled to start construction in 2016. The developers want to finish an 851 feet tall condo on Brickell Avenue first. Banco Santander of Spain is still planning to put their 950-feet tall international headquarters on the south end of Brickell Avenue as well.

Several other projects are also in the works. We're not sure yet what Genting out of Malaysia is going to do since the Casino Bill didn't pass, but the last I heard, it will consists of three 649 feet tall luxury condominiums just for starters.

How all of what's coming will hold up by 2025 no one can really say, but as you can see, a helluva lot is planned here in Miami and the market remains strong thus far.

Agree. It's longevity is one of the reasons it will be a hard skyline to equal. Architectural layering isn't something one can build over night. Even cities like Melbourne and Toronto that have been building highrises since they came into vogue in the 1880s don't have all that much stock from back then.

For the sake of these late bloomers, I'm hoping that we'll see another era of architecture that matches the grandeur, elegance, and charm of those early skyscrapers.

Currently, Miami looks too plain to me... looks like the smaller version of Panama.. IMO

Hopefully, those new plans will give more character to its skyline.

That's pretty much everybody's opinion of the Miami skyline as it currently stands. The boom of the last decade was driven a lot by speculators and developer greed, thus we ended up with this big, but short, and boxy skyline. Better projects with more character are in the works. It's just a matter of which projects make it and which don't. Here are two other projects that I didn't mention that are currently under construction.
