Supertall in your city

In addition, buildings taller that 300m or 1000ft can defined as skysdcraper or even supertall. Different cities consisted different skyscraper and supertall. So, how many supertall is situated and under construction in your city? How height theyt are? And what's name they are? In mine-Hong Kong, there are ICC, IFC, Central Plaza, Bank of China Tower, The Centre, Nina tower, Chang Kong Headquater, One Island East.........and you?

I moved the thread because,
this thread isn't about one project in particular
if it was, it's not named properly

None in Dallas I am sad to report. We have a height limit in the CBD due to Love Field being so close in. Our tallest is 72 floors [902' I think].

Ooops, so sorry to hear that. Well anyway, texas, one of the state of the US. Despite of dallas, there are numerous around in New York, LA, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Miami ......in your country. Well, 902' is okay i think as many cities still cannot reach to this height.

It's okay...still exciting to see the boom. While there are not as many towers of height going up as we had in the 80's there are more projects overall. We do have two [560' & 650'] big towers going up and a ton of 20-32 story buildings in the works filling in the uptown area quite nicely.

Ha that's nice. Maybe the economy in 80's is running the most fastly in 20century. However, I do feel positive with the future development as NY, Seattle, Chicago seems go too much and your city will be a new focus of the skyscraper development.

In my city, Santiago - Chile is one under construction, it's called The "Gran Costanera" Tower, it's 300 meters tall. It's in a complex called "Costanera Center" that includes one tower of 109 meters, two twin towers of 170 meters and the tower of 300m. It will be finished in 2010.

In that sector are many projects under construccion, like the Titanium tower
