It depends on what one considers a highrise. If we use 100m+ as a minimum, I'd guess Tokyo, New York, and Shanghai would be at the top. In Toronto (Mississauga included) we have 229 such buildings. There are 62 buildings 100m+ under construction and another 181 proposed. So ~472 buildings 100m+ for Toronto by 2020. That might be enough to keep Toronto in the top 10 by this metric. Not sure though.

A quick scan of a few cities gave me these numbers of Built + U/C + Proposed for a few cities. A few cities like Mumbai, Shenzhen, Jakarta, etc. would surely be in the mix but the information on the database looks way off so I didn't post them. I used roof heights and the SSP database for the table below:

100m+ Built, U/C, Proposed (selected cities)
New York 957
Shanghai 763
Hong Kong 705
Bangkok 564
Tokyo 505
Toronto 472
Dubai 387
Manila 385
Chicago 358
Seoul 322

You missed over half the city lol.

Here's the rest which you missed. Not rest, since it's missing a ton more
