Balneário Camboriú is famous for the cable car which (uniquely in the world) links the two beaches of Balneário Camboriú and Laranjeiras. The town is located 10 km (6.2 mi) south of the city of Itajaí and 80 km (50 mi) north of the state capital, Florianópolis, and has a population of 94,344 (2007 census office estimate), which swells to over one million in the summer.

In a story published in late February 2012 by Forbes magazine, about the ascent of electronic music in Brazil, Balneário Camboriú was presented as "the capital of e-music" in the country. According to Forbes, Balneário Camboriú is the home to the two best clubs in Brazil, the Warung club and the Green Valley club, which the publication claims to make up to $1.6 million per night. On 2012, the famous nightclub Space opened an affiliate in the city, the Space B. Camboriú. The city is also known by the nickname "Brazilian Dubai", due to its high number of skyscrappers and affluent tourists.

To be a real skyscrapercity, a city needs to have several hundred buildings in the 100-150 meter range which Dubai don't have
Agree with most of this, if Dubai was filled with skyscraper's, it would easily be #1, problem is, it looks so empty right now, and it appears that is how it will remain.

Isn't it a matter though of them being given the data? In other cities, Emporis has contacts that supply them with information.

Really nice density, but the skyscraper designs are all very plain.

Emporis counts everything over 12 floors. And like most data bases out there, the data for Asian cities is incomplete.

Yes, the highest building of Balneário Camboriu reaches just 164 meters (540 ft), but this situation is likely to change in just few years, with some buildings under construction:

Code:
Building Name                |   Height   | Year of completion  |
One Tower                    |    270m    |      2019           |
Infinity Coast               |    240m    |      2016           |
Yatchouse Residence Club 1   |    227m    |      2019           |
Yatchouse Residence Club 2   |    227m    |      2019           |
Boreal Tower                 |    220m    |      2018           |
Sky Tower                    |    210m    |      2017           |
Epic Tower                   |    209m    |      2016           |

The new WTC changed the skyline of Newyork but somehow I still prefer the old twin tower WTC. Just my personal preference though

I strongly agree with you. The one world Trade Center has not filled what has been emptied out of the once mighty Manhattan skyline brought about by the demolition of the once two tallest skyscrapers in the world. The present day Manhattan skyline has this feeling of "something's lacking" despite the twin Towers' replacement, at least for me.

you could argue downtown has lost some of its iconography with the loss of the original WTC and its replacement (which I disagree to) but the same can't be said for midtown, where new icons are being constructed.

great list! I would only count Istanbul out and Sydney, Brisbane, S.F. or L.A. in instead.

I agree with isaidso's top 10 [although not necessarily in the same order] with the exception of Tokyo. I think Tokyo has density and good layering but lacks the height to bring it to the top 10 in the world. I'd take Bangkok or Singapore over Tokyo.
