Please look at this, 200*100m+ highrises are rising here, and Guiyang has got 1400+ 30-storey building...

Also, according to Gaoloumi, Wuhan already has around 1000*100m+ highrises

so by 2020, a city with 1000*100m+ will certainly not get into top 5 globally

They totally are growing faster than Tokyo. Shenzhen alone has over 100 +200m buildings U/C or Prep.



see top



Correction. Thousands of residential towers in Guangzhou and Shenzhen are mostly between 80 and 130 meters tall. It's extremely typical in China to build apartments over 30 stories tall. Take a look at all the Shenzhen and Guangzhou pictures that are posted. Guangzhou is a sea of 30+story buildings; Shenzhen an ocean. Unlike Tokyo where almost everything floats under 15 stories. Don't believe me? See all the pictures of Shenzhen, Tokyo and Guangzhou on this thread and the Best Chinese Skyline thread and tell me that's not exactly what I described.
that's a bummer. that would mean that thousands of buildings aren't registrated and with that my estimations would be completely wrong.
and the worst thing is that there really ain't any lists with those buildings. everything we got is vague estimations. i give up. i have no idea on how to get exact information. it took hours just to get those numbers together and now it looks like it was all a waste of time ...

edit 2: took me a week to get the the ** thing ...

edit: thinking over it again and looking at pictures and data from shenzhen again i have to say that those numbers they estimated there are definitely wrong. i have no idea now what the real number is but for sure not over 8000
Regardless definitely more than tokyo but 800 to 1000 seems about right.

if you're really talking about the big project in qianhai then i have to remind you that i wrote 'all completed towers'. buildings u/c, plan or pro are NOT counted.

Yokohama have changed a lot.

and there a few new proposed skyscrapers too. if nothing goes wrong yokohama will have a new second tallest in four years by mori - the company behind toranomon hills or shanghai world financial center
but you're not completely wrong. yokohama has been a rather quiet place the last few years because of the financial crisis.
another reason is that about all the buildings that were built in these years are somewhere behind the landmark tower or simply not in the angle of the picture
