You need to distinguish can't from didn't.
whichmeans tokyo can't to built supertall due to danger earthquake
Also seoul can't built skyscraper in CBD area due to traditional heritage preserved law(height limit). that is why Lotte supertall built outskirt of seoul
if these cities feel free from those restriction then skyline would different than now.
btw I like NYC though.

That definitely won't happen. Worst-case scenario is when it becomes too unstable and it has to be demolished.

Unless it happens during an earthquake. That would be quite unpredictable...

Aren't these buildings fitted with a tuned mass damper? The sway should be limited.

I'm only aware that the larger and very slim towers in NY have tuned mass dampers, like the Steinway tower under construction, but not the Millennium tower in SF. It's not that tall and quite wide. But it seems to be built on mud, no piling all the way down to the bedrock.

SF's One Rincon Hill has a tuned mass damper:




There are a few more towers outside of NYC that have them too:

Yeah, from this angle, it looks like the Transamerica Pyramid is still the tallest.

True, but it does add some nice balance from that side!

the rounded panes, can anyone tell me about that kind of glass? I assume they need to be made anew in the event of a breakage. And I assume it's a reasonably modern process.

I love that cladding (the glass on the corner is great)
Well done, San Francisco!

This is really beginning to pop up all over town. It's a reminder that aesthetically - disregarding seismic, economic and Nimby factors - the City could easily accommodate a few 1300-1400 footers.
