Curiously they are all being built in New York and Chicago, with the exception of the Ice Tower being built on Panama City, Republic of Panama.

Dr Drums this is a interesting topic, maybe ore suited for the General urban developements subforum or "skyscrapers and architechture". This is a construction update forum and i doubt this thread has much to do with discussion of the progress of the buildings, but more about the regional skyscraperdevelopement and future in America.

Well I don´t think it´s wrong for the person who just got into the forum and wants to know which supertalls above 350m are being built in this continent, in a quick way, not searching the entire database, but your argument is valid and made in a mature way (not like others), but I think is useful for this subforum, anyways the moderators will decide where it should go. and to the other guy... think before you talk.

Yes it is, the short one is already approved, it´s appartments are being sold like "hot bread", if sales go like they expect, they will approve the tallest in no time.
