Paris may have a good skyline in the future, but do realize that only three skyscrapers are u/c and the tallest building is only 758 ft.

Agree. Paris has a decent skyline, but it's a midget by global standards. It might get there one day, but not by 2025. Nice photos though.

The original is one of my favorite aerials of Toronto. Check out this link. This isn't even all of our future projects here in Miami and whoever did this article didn't do the buildings to scale.

So that you don't have to click on a link. Some of these buildings are not true to scale and looks like they don't anticipate any of the supertalls being completed by 2020.

It also doesn't include all the towers in the Omni/Edgewater neighborhoods just out of frame to the right.

No, it doesn't. That would include three buildings over 500 feet tall already built, four more over 500 feet tall that are planned, and five over 600 feet tall that are planned that we know of so far. That's 12 buildings not depicted here not including the shorter ones that are planned. A skyline unto itself is planned just out of the frame to the right.

Is that super tall proposed for Miami in that 2020 rendering?

Seems to me none of the proposed supertalls, of which I think there's three, are visible or to scale.

One Brickell CityCentre is there, but this is such a poor job of a rendering, I didn't even notice it until it was brought to my attention. Also, Panorama tower is there, which will be our new tallest before One Brickell CityCentre, but since neither buildling is to it's true scale, they both look shorter than the Four Seasons, our current tallest. One Brickell is also there which is supposed to be 80, 70, and 55 floors, but they are ridiculously short. Not sure why.

without a doubt Miami, Toronto, and NYC are the ones to watch in NA. A few other cities may spawn supertalls but those three will have the most development

We have three supertalls planned thus far. One Brickell CityCentre planned by Swire, an international developer out of Hong Kong, is almost a sure shot. This will be their tallest building, and I'm sure they are more than happy to make a statement.

One Brickell, an 80, 70, and 55-story complex has Jorge Perez behind it, and he almost always does what he says he's going to do. He might wait for the market to absorb One Brickell CityCentre though.

One Bayfront Plaza is being developed by Tibor Hollo and sons. It's been planned for years now and originally was supposed to start in 2011. Then, postponed until 2016. Now with One Brickell CityCentre on the horizon, who knows what they are going to do with the moving ground-breaking dates. Tibor Hollo had wanted his legacy for Miami to be a signature tower for the city, but it looks as though One Brickell CityCentre will wear that mantle. Will his sons finish the job with Tibor Hollo approaching 90? We don't know.

Latest rendering of Brickell CityCentre, a skyline unto itself.

Don't forget San Francisco which will essentially double its downtown tower inventory over the next 10 years.

Here's a chunk of the Transbay District which will feature the city's first supertall (well into prep phase and U/C soon):



All of the new towers will be built or already are U/C, with perhaps one exception (due to Shiite NIMBYs).

Looks like things are finally starting to ramp up there. It was on hold for the longest time.

I was surprised to see it had resumed. The north American top 10 is going to look quite interesting in 2025. Miami might start closing in on Chicago in the way that Toronto is now. San Francisco might be a solid #5 and I'm hoping that Calgary will blossom into one of the big boys. I'm hoping for a 7th spot for Cowtown.

New York, New York!
That's very impressive. I believe the corresponding figure for Toronto is only 38.
