# of 100m+ Buildings Completed, U/C, Proposed

I tried compiling a data base for 200m+ buildings with detail about every single building, but it was too daunting. Perhaps a table of the # of 100m+ buildings completed, U/C, and proposed would give a rough idea of how cities stack up quantitatively. Let's keep it to roof heights as it's more representative. I'll start off with my home town.


Toronto
Completed: 162
Under construction: 70
Proposed: 131

Back in 2004 Shanghai was said to have over 4,000 highrises. It routinely adds more highrise space every year than all the office space in Manhattan (or so I read in several articles in 2007), thanks to the population growing by about a million a year, all of whom have to be housed (2800 per day), and almost all who are being in highrises. Anyone have more info? Or anyone find those articles? (I think New York Times and Time Out?)

Back in 2002 the Shanghai Council released data putting it at 2800 being 18 storeys or more. It's grown by 5-10 million since then, depending on where you stop counting.

Is there any bottom limit for contributing cities? Since I could add quite some cities but their amount of highrises would be in the area of 1-20. So is their a requirement for a city to contributed except for the fact that it has at least one highrise? Or are we gathering ALL highrises out there?

This list is composed of buildings taller than 100m. According to Wikipedia, highrises are building over 12 stories or 35 meters. On that list, the first place (Hong Kong) is something like 7000 buildings

None proposed is a bit of a surprise.

Add any city you'd like, as long as it has some 100m+ buildings, roof height.

We've been asking that same question in the Toronto section. About 90% of the proposals over the last 6 years ended up being built in some form or other. Lots were sent back for a design review and sometimes a height reduction, but few got scrapped altogether.

The frenetic pace set in 2011 was tamed with tougher financing rules put in place last year, and sales have returned to a more sustainable level. Of those 131 proposals, most will end up being built. There are roughly 100,000 people who move to the Toronto area every year. Even if only 20% choose a downtown condo, that still translates to the need for about 50-60 new condo towers every year. The downtown population boom is now fueling a downtown office tower boom.

Hong Kong (* Likely an under count)
Completed: 677
Under construction: 5
Proposed: 1

Shanghai
Completed: 714

Bangkok

Yes, of course it does. How can you compare the space of the biggest city proper in the world to only the office space in Manhattan with just 1,6 million people?

What a weird, meaningless comparison. Talk about apples to oranges...

Johannesburg and Sandton(which is in Johannesburg):

Completed: 19
U/C:1 (that numbers wrong, but no good sources)
Proposed: 6+ Considering most of those are in Sandton, they will likely all be built
