yes, sorry, I forgot La Defense is not counted inside Paris. I know Paris has more real skyscrapers than Benidorm, but if you count lower heights there's some point Benidorm is the number one in Europe, it was buildings taller than 21-24 floors or so . And the same that happens with Paris and La Defense, it also happens with Benidorm-Villajoyosa, wich would count 4 more towers over 100m.

London has 40 buildings over 100 meters completed. 20 buildings over 100m U/C/demo , 36 buildings of 100 m approved and 14 proposed. So taking in to account that there may be new proposal between now and 2012 i would say London should have about over 120 + buildings over 100 m built.

How many does Paris have?

Rotterdam has 16 buildings over 100 meters completed. 2 buildings over 100m U/C. 4 buildings of 100m approved and 10 proposed.

I'm not sure about the last thing. A few 200m+ towers will go u/c by the end of 2011, but there are more 180m+ and lower towers proposed. It's a mess.

As I Already wrote Paris has 63 (erratum: 64) buildings over 100m completed (see the 90m+ list in my previous post, btw 3 buildings are missing in the list including 1 over 100m in Boulogne-Billancourt).

Here is the list of the 19 Projects :



So: Total (in 2014/2015) 83 over 100m (123 over 90m, 147 over 80m, but I don't know if there any or some projects of 80m-99m)

I said that as a funny note, those buildings are not even quite important because they're not tall enough,I counted them in emporis some years ago, and it's hard to count Benidorm buildings, because they don't have heights, just floor counts, so I counted that in floors, not metres. Now I'm looking that again, and around lower heights Benidorm have, counting completed and under construction:

30 over 30 floors
80 over 25 floors (91 counting Villajoyosa)
87 over 24 (98 counting Villajoyosa)
108 over 23 (119)
127 over 22 (139)
150 over 21 (163)
183 over 20 (196)

@Parcdesprinces:
Your list of Paris highrise buildings (from French wikipedia) is incomplete.

The French website Paris Skyscrapers hosts a database which is a better reference. But even there, the list isn't fully complete.

They have still already referenced in the Paris area :
- 67 buildings over 100m
- 137 buildings over 80m
- 792 buildings over 15 floors.


Here's the link for buildings above 80m sorted by height :
http://www.paris-skyscrapers.fr/resu...0,100,1,1,1,1,

Here's the link for buildings above 50m sorted by floor count :
http://www.paris-skyscrapers.fr/resu...0,100,1,4,1,1,

The London picture is really amazing! It might not be the most beautiful capital, but it's by far the most interesting and stunning one in Europe.

@xlchris
Rotterdam looks a bit depressing and dull...
