A very nice list is the following :

http://www.library.tudelft.nl/~egram/skylines.htm

I Think this one is more accurate on figures although you do not get individual buildings one it. To see development you can look at past scores and compare them.


[1] 1 105918 Hong Kong China 3535 Union Square (474m, u/c)
[2] 2 34833 New York (incl. Jersey City) USA 847 Freedom Tower (541m, u/c)
[3] 3 15858 Tokyo Japan 504 Mid Town Tower (248m, u/c)
[5] 4 13984 Shanghai China 402 Shanghai World Financial Center (492m, u/c)
[4] 5 13834 Chicago USA 317 Sears Tower (442m)
[6] 6 10355 Bangkok Thailand 362 Baiyoke Tower II (304m)
[7] 7 6797 Singapore Singapore 278 United Overseas Bank Plaza One (280m)
[8] 8 6604 Kuala Lumpur Malaysia 177 Petronas Tower I (452m)
[24] 9 6494 Dubai U.A.E. 115 Burj Dubai (705m, u/c)

@I-275westcoastfl : And Hong Kong beats NY in the absolute number of scrapers. It is true.

Even that is out-dated.

Guess I have the wrong number of fingers ... too much inbreeding?
