No he didn't. He listed FCP which is taller so there was no need to list Scotia Plaza as Toronto was already represented.

That Tulsa building looks lonely.

Maybe there are some other tall ones just out of shot.

That's what I mean, we should show photos of the least known buildings mention on the list here.

Tulsa's skyline's pretty impressive for its size.

No, I think BoA deserves that spot.

Like the one tulsa center. I never knew it existed, it doesn't look over 200 Meters thought.



By the same architect and built in the same way as the World Trade Centres in NY I think - can anyone confirm this?

You can easily imagine another stacked on top would = one world trade tower.

The highest occupied floor in the US Bank Tower in LA is well into the spire/crown area of the B of A building in Atlanta. its the crown that makes it overtake it. kinda like this!



well simular enough...

The proposed Fringe Tower is very unlikely to happen, first of all there's a height limit so the tower would be scaled down to about 600 ft. or below 200m. And this tower seems to be a vision but we never know, it could happen.

But Vancouver comes close to joining the 200m club with Living Shangri-La 196m, and 1133 georgia 183m.

Interesting thread. Tulsa has a 200+ But bigger cities like Portland, San Diego and others don't.

Brisbane's 200m (250m spire) Riparian Plaza is complete now so it joins the worlds 200+ club. The 207m Aurora tower is over 150m now and should be at its 207m full height by the end of the year.
