It seems like Manila's business people are conservative. Average height edifices are being built just to house condos and fill up business offices. They are averse to building supertalls because of airplane height restriction, earthquakes and pure egos.

What are the aviation height restrictions regarding Manila. In downtown Miami, near the mouth of the river, we are allowed only 1,010 feet.

Thats higher than Singapore, many developers want to build beyond 280m. Thats why u see 3 buildings sharing same height due to restrictions.

If height restrictions like miami, singapore would already have few supertalls

Thanks, but all of the above I already know. At least we are allowed a few supertalls here in Miami, but not very tall supertalls. This one will be our first.

The first image above will change in the next 1-5 years, due to the addition of several skyscrapers,
including 2 supertalls (Thamrin-Nine and The ICON).

London's Isles of Dogs is expanding and taking in the O2 arena now.



35+ towers approved for Canary Wharf - Pan Peninsular (O2arena) has lots of 70-120m towers.

This list of completed, u/c, or proposed buildings for Miami from the CTBUH shows Miami to have over 50 buildings 150m or taller, and this isn't even everything that's proposed or under construction. The market shows no signs of cooling down. New proposals keep coming down the pike.

New development over the rail track will help close the gap between the Toronto CBD and Southcore and will change the whole skyline.
Project and renderings are from Wilkinson Eyre Architects, the same firm who designed the Guangzhou IFC.
We don't have yet any official insight about the height but AndrewJM3D made some predictions.

Ad on an extra 1.5m for the trim at the top and this should top out around 286.62 m just shy of the height of FCP's facade 290m not it's mechanical roof 298m).

My prediction

Tallest Tower
286.62 m
940.35 ft

Mid Height Tower
239.1 m
784.45 ft

Shortest Tower
166.32 m
545.67 ft


Not too shabby

45 Bay is awesome. We'll also finally get some decent height to the west of the CN Tower with that 79 + 69 floor condo proposal that was announced yesterday. Both should easily be over 200m.

This list shows Toronto to have 80 buildings over 150m with Miami closing the gap on Panama City. That's phenomenal for both cities. To view any other city, just select it from the drop-down list and click on "create list."

This list is also missing the entire Miami World Center megaproject as well as our other supertall One Bayfront Plaza. There are also four 60-story buildings planned, one 65-story building planned, and a 70-story building planned that I know of. All Aboard Florida has an 80-story building planned (see at bottom below). All of these are not listed on the CTBUH list of proposed projects for Miami. There are others planned that are kind of tentative right now. Our list should be almost as big as Toronto's is now, but I'm sure Toronto has proposals that are not listed as well.

Nice updates on Miami, the new buildings will surely add more charisma to its current skyline.

Yes, and everything that I mentioned in the preceeding post above is what's not listed on the CTBUH list of proposed buildings for Miami. There are 15-20 more buildings that are proposed that aren't there. We don't quite yet know what the Genting group is going to do with the old Miami Herald property after they finish demolishing the Herald building. There are two more 200m+ buildings planned for Biscayne Boulevard.

It looks as though the developers of One Bayfront Plaza are going to hold off once again and resurrect a dead project from the last boom - Villa Magna. They are two busy with Panorama now to start One Bayfront Plaza and if they start that project next, we will have two supertalls coming on line at the same time. That wouldn't be good for the market.

Yes, these lists are best taken as 'rough guides' rather than 100% precise.

You're going to give yourself a brain aneurysm hoping that Miami can reel in Toronto. I'm not suggesting that it couldn't happen, just that it's going to be a very tall order. The amount of development here shows no signs of letting up with new proposals still getting announced frequently.

The thought never occurred to me, only that both cities have a lot on the drawing board. Reeling in Panama City though seems like a real possibility.
