The one under construction in Seville (by C.Pelli), southern Spain, should be added to the list. 590 feet when finished and over 500 at the moment. the nearest skyscrapers over 500 feet are in madrid more than 500 kms far. link to the thread:world forum http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...408806&page=19 spanish forum http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...34744&page=233

Hay River NT, Canada (population - 3600) has a 16 story apartment building.
No other highrises exist in that city. Closest building taller than it or even closest building that exceeds 4 stories is around 200km away in Yellowknife.

No offense, Look at the first page and see carefully what thread starter, Twipsy, wrote.

The skyscraper has to be over 500ft (150m without spires and stuff)
Many buildings above posted here look quite shorter than 500ft(150m).

This is what Twipsy said.

This list shows the 20 loneliest skyscrapers with the distance to the next skyscraper:

1 --- Vero Centre --- Auckland --- New Zealand --- 2159 km
2 --- Fortune Plaza --- Ürümqi --- China --- 864 km
3 --- JW Marriott Hotel --- Almaty --- Kazakhstan --- 864 km
4 --- JR Tower --- Sapporo --- Japan --- 769 km
5 --- Turning Torso --- Malmö --- Sweden --- 645 km
6 --- Torre Dataflux --- San Pedro Garza Garcia --- Mexico --- 574 km
7 --- Millennium Tower --- Vienna --- Austria --- 552 km
8 --- Diwang International Commerce Center --- Nanning --- China --- 487 km
9 --- Xi´an Telecommunications Hinge Center --- Xian --- China --- 431 km
10 --- Dar Al Awadi --- Kuwait City --- Kuwait --- 431 km
11 --- Tour du Credit Lyonnais --- Lyon --- France --- 393 km
12 --- Gran Hotel Bali --- Benidorm --- Spain --- 371 km
13 --- Metropolitan Tower --- Little Rock --- USA --- 364 km
14 --- Yuda World Trade Center --- Zhengzhou --- China --- 361 km
15 --- Rio Sul Center --- Rio de Janeiro --- Brazil --- 360 km
16 --- Lotte Hotel Busan --- Busan --- South Korea --- 315 km
17 --- Torre De Cali --- Cali --- Colombia --- 301 km
18 --- Menara KOMTAR --- Penang Island --- Malaysia --- 292 km
19 --- Miyazaki Phoenix Hotel Ocean 45 --- Miyazaki --- Japan --- 287 km
20 --- Minxing Financial Tower --- Chengdu --- China --- 266 km

Here is the list of the 200 loneliest skyscrapers

Note: This calculation takes only buildings into account, which are at least 500 ft tall without spires or elevator boxes. So a skyscraper may be considered as "lonely", although there may be a 499 ft building right next to it.
