It's frustrating, but there's always the possibility that some of these forum members are very young (under 8 years old). I suppose we just have to assume that's the case.

I gave up explaining the purpose of the thread to forumers who don't bother to read the title before commenting. They wouldn't understand anyway

BTW, update for Shenzhen

Looks like we have a new #1. I'll edit above rather than re-post it.

On another note, it's a bit deflating watching Toronto go through the biggest boom in Canada's history only to tread water... maybe even drop down a few places. I suppose we should take some consolation in that we're on the verge of being #2 outside of Asia. Still though!

Outside Asia

New York 70
Panama City 25
Chicago 24
Toronto 21
Houston, Moscow 14
Melbourne 12
Istanbul, Los Angeles 11
Atlanta, Sydney 9
London 8
Brisbane, Dallas, Mexico City 7

Sorry, but Frankfurt has only 5 towers built.

The others are proposed.

I didn't see Mumbai in the above list.

Incase anyone is interested, Mumbai's list of 200-299m can be generated from here - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=3615

New York should be way out in front. It's the primary city of a developed nation of 320 million people. There's also 20 million people in metro New York.

It's the most impressive one on that list imo. The Panama City skyline suffers from low quality, few office buildings, and the fact that it's in central America. I have to admit I didn't know they had a good skyline till I joined SSC. It was a pleasant surprise for me.

Hey isaidso, small correction, and it won't matter much in all likelihood, but Montréal should have 2 buildings:

Le 1250 Boulevard René-Lévesque | 226m
Le 1000 de la Gauchetière | 205m

Yohja: It depends on whether we're counting spires or not. I'm assuming not. 1250 Boulevard René-Lévesque is 199m with a 31m spire on top of it. I don't think it counts. The lone listing for Montreal is for 1000 de la Gauchetière. Unfortunately for Montreal I doubt we'll see the number of 200m+ buildings rise due to severe height restrictions. It's why there are so many towers just under 200m and the skyline is developing a 'table top' appearance.

It's too bad considering that Montreal was once one of the big skyline cities. In 1962 Montreal had taller buildings than Chicago if you can believe it.

Erhan: Thanks, I'll edit above.

I thought the consensus was that a spire is an integral part of a building?

Whilst an antenna is not. But that's just my thought.

I don't think there is consensus on that issue at all. Some include them, some do not. I don't think it gives an accurate account of how tall a building actually is so I almost always go with roof height. Btw, for Montreal I should have said 'antenna' not 'spire'. 1250 Boulevard René-Lévesque has a 31m antennae on top.

I suppose most of the entries on here include spires though.

My bad, I was under the impression that it was indeed a spire, as denoted by CTBUH and Skyscraperpage; never knew it was an antenna.
