It always surprises me how Seattle manages to have such a great skyline despite there being only a few tall buildings.

We'll be able to add Massey Tower and Eau de Soleil to that 'Prep' list within a few weeks and few others before the year is out.

Seattle has hills to complement its skyline, and the balance of the highrises is also perfect.

Yep! For a while now they've had an equal amount, but Melbourne's residential market is booming and the city has many more 200m+ buildings in the proposal stages (it seems like 200m buildings are proposed every other week).

Long term, I see Melbourne becoming Australia's NY/London/Toronto, not Sydney. I'm sure lots of Sydneysiders will have something to say about that, but Melbourne's got all the momentum.

They might be hard to catch, but who knows. We have 18 proposals in the 200-299m range and another 5 possible (3 Oxford towers + 2 Cumberland Terrace towers). If they all get built that bumps Toronto's number up to 43.

I think Houston has 1 or 2 in the preparation stage, so does Philadelphia.

It's nice to know NYC is still number one, followed closely by Shenzhen.

That's completely true, but it's important not to forget that Sydney's market is going completely bonkers as well, so much that people are finding it difficult to secure a purchase simply because the apartments are selling too fast. Entire apartment towers sell out within hours of being released as I'm sure you've heard. It's been this way for quite a while now. Sydney's residential market, particularly for apartments is definitely booming - and without anything against Melbourne, it's in fact supposedly the most active in the country?

And it's not as if Melbourne's not building a lot either...

And right you are in that prediction lol - it may come as a bit of a surprise but despite Melbourne getting more high rises, it is actually Sydney which is set to build the more apartments as an overall.

Difference is that approvals in Melbourne is handled by a state government which is generally in favour of development, whereas in Sydney CBD they're handled by Sydney City Council with their ridiculous planning controls and height limits. They're an impediment to the city's growth imo. There's some existing towers in the city that if they were proposed today, would have never been allowed because they breach the current height limit. Result is that developers are looking elsewhere within Sydney, and not the CBD, whereas in Melbourne they're concentrating in and around the CBD where they're actually allowed to build tall.

But if the amount of high rises alone is all you're concerned about then yes, in Sydney without any intervention by the state government it's likely that Melbourne will continue to build more high rises than in Sydney, and deservedly so, at least in the current situation. There are a few significant state-run projects in the pipeline though so guess we'll just have to wait and see how they go.

I do look at construction, but also things like population growth, # of start ups, industry clusters, momentum, business climate/taxation, cost of living, cultural assets, etc. in forming conclusions about these things.

Well that's good you mentioned it. Cause as a tip, if you get more up to speed with these things you'll see what I mean.

Well anyway, this is about 200-299m buildings. There's enough threads in OzScrapers discussing Sydney vs. Melbourne
