I think Tokyo has more than New York.

This thread is not for the Shanghai/Tokyo/NY competition.
This thread is for Shanghai Tower only.

I've read that Sao Paulo has more high rise buildings than any city in the world and when I've looked at photos taken from airplanes it seems like they just go on as far as you can see. Here's a few photos from several years ago from a thread that claims at that time there were about 30,000 of them:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=754278
I get the feeling that nobody has ever bothered to actually get the heights for all of these buildings, categorize them, and add them all up. It would be a massive job to do so. I've seen similar aerial photos of Shanghai which also appears to have high rises that go on for miles so I wonder if the same thing is going on here. In other words, I suspect that many of these websites are just listing the most prominent buildings in these cities that have already been compiled in a list while leaving thousands of them uncounted because it would simply be too big of a job to do. Just a thought.

Of course I agree that this thread is for the Shanghai Tower which should be the main point of discussions but at the same time I think it should be ok to briefly consider that Shanghai's tallest building will be surrounded by a massive collection of other high rise buildings and to consider how it stacks up to other cities with huge skylines as long as we don't get carried away. By the way, I'm loving the cladding but on many of the renders there seems to be a bend or twist that is quite apparent and so far I don't see anything that makes it appear that it's really going to look that way. Is that because the cladding that isn't up yet will change as it goes higher or is that render somewhat exaggerated? Thanks.

As I'm actually working at a 3dsmax model of ST - and therefore I'm studying rather deeply its structure, within the limits of publicly available stuff - guess I'm in some way 'entitled' to (try and) answer your question.
As first, would be helpful to see to which rendering you refer to.
Anyway, the cladding does twist. Each horizontal row of windows rotates 1 degree clockwise each 4,5 meters up (i.e. each floor), respect to the immediately lower level. At mech floors the rotation is 1,24-1,25 degrees, as these floors are higher than ordinary ones.
Also, each row is scaled down (by decimals) respect to the immediately lower one.
All of this gives to the eye the twisting effect that, to be honest, I really cannot understand why you cannot catch (if I got you right).
To me, such an effect is evident since now, with only two sections cladded, but of course it will appear more evident as far as the cladding progresses up.

There's no cladding here (it's my model still U/C), but is this enough to allow you to get the twist anyway (4 sections out of 8)?

MontanaGuy, you can see where it curves on the left side of this photo. Wait for cladding to get higher, and it'll really pop out at you.

The top six cities with the most highrises in SSP is:
1: New York City ( 5848 )
2: Toronto ( 1938 )
3: Shanghai ( 1193 )
4: Tokyo ( 1168 )
5: Chicago ( 1140 )
5: Hong Kong ( 952 )

But there are of course much more unknown towers not included in the list.

SSP isn't reliable in that field, as each individual building's name, year, et cetera must be put in the system to come up. I guess Hong Kong is too lazy to do the other 6,500.

Indeed, that list only includes towers with proper information, but it's impossible to know the real number of buildings. There are even cases where the owner or company just build some tower without any approval by law.
