This is SSC. Most of those 90m+ buildings are crap and/or not even skyscrapers to begin with. Why people call buildings under 600/500' skyscrapers is beyond me. Perhaps they think they can get away with claiming that they have the most.

NY has still the Most Towers over 200m ( and that counts more than 90 highrises ), and i'm not sure if dubai will break this record in the future because of all the new projects in NY

yes but ONLY NYC with have NEW YORKERS, the culture, the vibrant street scene...

all others are imitators [except Chicago! we've had our own version for 100 years now]

"planned" cities with no street life may as well be suburbia to me

Yep. I saw a thing on the Hudson Yards on the news but I didn't hear anything, but I was able to find an article. Seems that Brookfield is dropping out

And then there were three. Tishman also dropped out too because their fiscal benefactor didn't wanna be a part of it.

GO GO MYSPACE. All of the plans have supertalls.

Tishman Speyer Wins Right to Develop Manhattan’s Far West Side With $1 Billion Bid

The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) announced today that Tishman Speyer Properties, owner of such landmark properties as Rockefeller Center, the Chrysler Building, and the Hearst Building, has won the right to build on the West Side Rail Yards with a $1 billion bid. The 26-acre site located between 30th and 33rd Streets from 10th Avenue to the Hudson, is the largest remaining undeveloped site in Manhattan.

Tishman’s proposal, which is designed by Chicago architect Helmut Jahn and New York-based Cooper Robertson with landscape architect Peter Walker, will bring a taste of Rome to Manhattan, with a masterplan that includes elements that are takes on the Roman forum and the Spanish Steps. The plan calls for five office towers with 8.1 million square feet of space, 3,000 residential units, 13 acres of open space, a new public school and a 200,000 square foot cultural center. As part of the plan, Tishman will preserve the Highline, an elevated disused rail line that runs from Chelsea to Mid-town, which is to be transformed into a linear park.
