QuantumX: those Miami plans look terrific. The 80 floor mixed use tower is dynamite.

Thanks, Isaidso! I'm trying to nail down the height in feet or meters with Arquitectonica since height in floors varies from building to building. I used to talk to the marketing director all the time and send him pictures. I got published from submitted photos to Arquitectonica, so I think I'll hear from him once he frees up. It's not like he doesn't know who I am.

It looks like the first 30 floors are office and the remainder condos. Looks like it could potentially be Miami's new tallest?

It would be Miami's new tallest if the taller buildings that we have planned aren't completed before this one. What I'm trying to nail down is if this is another supertall that we have planned. It would be a supertall if we have enough office space planned in the building, but most people, even from other forums, think this is a supertall, probably in the 990 range just breaking 300 meters.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. It does look like it's right on the cusp.

I like the shape of Toronto's future skyline.
smooth and curvy.

Anyway, I haven't heard anything from Arquitectonica yet, but I did manage to talk to somebody from Swire. They don't know how tall the building is going to be in feet yet because it is still in the early stages of planning. I did make the suggestion that making it a supertall would increase the city's stature in the world and that they should add an observation deck. So again we wait to see what we're going to get.

Depending on what the market is doing by the time they are ready to start construction, more of those 80 stories could turn into office space, so we have to wait.

I especially like it from the angle that Isaidso mentioned that shows it at its best.

That would be from Humber Bay in Etobicoke (pronounced Ee-toe-bee-co). It already looks quite spectacular, but will improve markedly if those 150+ proposals get built over the next few years. Yorkville is actually just out of frame and would be to the left. The Yorkville cluster might rival that of the CBD in 2025.

Hey I reckon in the future the city with the most skyscrapers will be the biggest cities, correlating with population. Building high wont be a big deal by then, and as each of the developing world nations rise one by one the skyscrapers will match their aspirations.

Thus the future for most highrise city could just simply be 'biggest city'. Eg:

Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta, Jakarta, Delhi, Mumbai, Tokyo, Karachi, Lagos, Dhaka, Manila, Seoul, Beijing, Kolkata, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Chongqing.

The ones that may skew it would be the major quake zones, eg Mexico City and Tokyo (already seen in its strict height limits).

Hongkong has most highrise in the world for many years,Ahead of second place more than one thousand,but did Hong Kong have been the world's best skyline for many years?
Beijing three times the population of Hong Kong,but Beijing is far below the number of highrise in Hong Kong because height limit

Someone from Bangladesh argued that its problematic building skyscrapers in Dhaka due to the soil, bedrock, etc. It's why so few exist today.

A bit off topic here, but the spelling doesn't make any sense. I know I misspelled it now that I think about it, but it needs a name change, cus it is wrong as it is right now :p

Anyway, it is kinda sad too how Manhattan is split in upper and lower part, and with the ground not being able to support tall skyscrapers all over the island. So in the future I can deffinately see another city overtake it. But will it be Shenzhen or Mumbai or Shanghai? I am not sure sure. They are all suffering from the same problem, and that is a sinking city due to lower groundwater levels and heavy buildings. Couple that with a seawater rise, and it is just a matter of time before restrictions in new constructions are implemented. Very unfortunate I suppose!

Again I must point to Seoul as a huge dark horse here in the distant future. And I am not so sure you can completely rule out Beijing 40 years from now, but time will tell. Or maybe Chongqing? It does have an extreme advantage in that the buildings there all look taller than they really are due to the landscape, and that adds to the skyline look!

Edit: Who has not heard the story about the two men. One building his house on the mountain, and the other one building it on the sand beach? Surely it seems more economic to build a huge city on a trading port, but how long will they last? Chongqing will stand there forever!
