Not too many North American cities can match the density and layers of Boston

Take Tokyo (9th) and Toronto (10th), for example. Both have approximately the same number of high rises, 2779 in Tokyo and 2511 in Toronto. Tokyo's 13.0 million people are spread over 2188 sq km while Toronto's 2.8 million are spread over 630 sq km. Toronto's high rise density is about 3 times that of Tokyo and has 4 times as many high rises per capita.

I suspect that the data for Chinese cities isn't up to date. Shenzhen would surely be in the top 10 although Guangzhou would likely not be. Singapore, Toronto, Rio de Janeiro, Mumbai and Delhi have huge numbers of high rises throughout their metropolitan regions. Contrast that to a city like Chicago where 95% of all high rises are downtown and are heavily skewed to the 100m+ category. If you look at aerial shots it becomes more apparent.

I'm not familiar with Caracas, so can't comment on that city but south American cities tend to have huge numbers of high rises. Where they fall short is in 100m+ buildings.

Perhaps Chinese people can update their data instead of continually complaining that their cities are under counted.

As has been stated many many times, the data for Chinese cities isn't up to date. Most cities in the other 190+ countries on earth have a fairly accurate count. We're supposed to disregard data tables that are fairly accurate because 1 country can't get their data properly tabulated?

Even in a small city like mine (Yangzhou, Jiangsu Province) there were 3,232 high-rises back in 2012 (2,064 built, 1,168 U/C). Albeit we only have one tower above 100m.

Quote:
从现有和在建的总量看,扬州市现有各类高层建筑(10层及10层以上的住宅建筑和高度超过24米的公共建筑和综合性建筑)3232幢,超高层建筑(超过100米)1幢。其中已建成2064幢,在建1168幢。

A highrise, by Chinese definition, would be a building over 10 floors or at least 24m tall.

Well those Chinese table aren't going to get completed just talking about it. If there's enough man power in China to build a high rise, there's certainly enough to record it.
