The thing about it is that Chicago kind of already had its boom, Panama's little boom was back in 1996 but now it has gotten serious, we're competing with some of the largest cities in the world in terms of buildings and their sizes. It is an astonoshing achievment that we have been creating and soon, will occur and the whole world will be witnesses of it.

only 8 in london, but then our floor heights are way more than most places hence 11 over 200m planned and 23 over 150m planned. when you have 12 floor 100m tall buildings floor numbers mean diddly squat guys.

I'm going to do this,

I saw how my dear Miamian friend put all of the buildings over 500ft so I'll do the same!

Ice Tower-1250ft
Farros Central-1181ft
Palacio de la Bahia- 1148ft
Torre Planetarium-984ft
Trump Ocean Club International Hotel & Tower-902ft
Torre Oeste-902ft
Torre Este-902ft
Q Tower-820ft
Arts Tower-820ft
Torre Waters-804ft
Ocean Two-774ft
Torre Vitri-765ft
Pearl Tower-700ft
Torre Aqualina-687ft
Bel Air-685ft
Rivage-682ft
Ocean One-682ft
Sky Tower-670ft
Banco del Istmo Tower-656ft
Aquamare-650ft
Venetian Tower-631ft
Bahia Pacifica-602ft
Destiny Panama Bay-600ft
Dupont Tower-600ft
Ten Tower-590ft!
(It took 24 buildings to get into a 500 footer) (And there are even more than any other 500 footers. There are more 500 footers than 600 footers and 700 footers combined!)
I don't understand why people have never heard of this city and its amazing BOOM! It is the largest Latin American Boom! And definitely the largest 5 booms in the world! Miami,Panama City, Dubai, Hong Kong, and Beijing in my opinion are the Top 5 booms of the world.

And Manchester is heaven because it has the piss-clad Beetham tower? I have tried to be nice about that for the whole countries skyscraper scene more than anything, but the cladding does look stupid.
And visit Newcastle and see it's old and new architecture before speaking, and don't bother telling me to visit Dubai before making comments because the buildings their are paraded around like something not right, unlike Newcastle. We have amazing Georgian architecture, really don't need bland skyscrapers like what Dubai has to offer. You know what I can't be bothered with this crap anymore, I only posted my opinion, which is infact what alot of people I have seen think.

Manchester and Salford have afew but its unclear for most of them how many floors they will have.

A building at 70 floors have been reported for the Piccdilly area but not everything is currently known about it.
Eastgate 60 floors, Approved.
Quay Point Tower 1, 50 floors Planned .
Crown Building 43 floors, but this has been increased possible to around 50, Approved.
Greengate Tower is a possible 50 story and has been more in the past with other designs.
Beetham 50 floors U/C.
Central Spine 44 floors but may be changed.
