I searched the internet and I did not find any source for the number of highrises in Sao Paulo (except Emporis)

I don't want: "a friend of a friend, heard from sommebody that..."

As I said, São Paulo is indisputably the city with the largest number of highrises in the world. The total number of highrises is probably 3 times the total of the city with the second largest number.

If you don't get specific data, everything you say is taken by the wind. Stating what you say without comparative data, it reduces everything to "my city is the best in the world because what i say". For the images i've seen, New York or Hong Kong thousand rounds to give Sao Paulo. And I think the same applies to Tokyo. In addition, the buildings of Sao Paulo are horrible, with a very simple and typical architecture in South America. I don't like

This is only about the amount of highrises - not the design of them.

Granted, if you set a relatively low cut-off point of what constitutes a highrise, it is very likely that Sao Paulo currently has the most in the world. Actual skyscrapers is a whole other issue though.
But as long as we don't get any actual statistics, such statements are useless.

I searched the internet, and I encountered numbers from 21 thousand in the city plus 7 thousand in the metropolitan region, 30 thousand, 35 thousand, 40 thousand to 45 thousand. All numbers refer to buildings over 12 stories.

Well, some photos of São Paulo:

New York can be more impressive, however, with massive buildings:

For the amount of skyscrapers in this city, Sampa definitely needs skyscrapers over 600 ft. Also some supertalls.

We still don't see a source...

It's not like we don't have a reason to believe you (the fact that Sao Paulo currently has the most 12fl+ buildings), it's just that you make these claims over and over and upon being requested to show a source you fail to do so...

The sources are all from the Brasilian foruns, they are not very accurate. I searched the internet, but haven't found anything.

I can imagine one big supertall, the size of one WTC tower, in the middle of the city. It would dominated the skyline like an mountain.

There was one visionary scraper planned for Sao Paulo. It resembles The visionary project, Centre of Vedic Learning.

For now Edificio Italia doesn't do justice as one of the tallest.

China has a total urban population of about 500 million, Brazil has a total urban population of 120 million. Now, Shanghai is a city of about the same population as São Paulo, but São Paulo has 30-40 thousand highrises while Shanghai had 6 thousand in 2005. If the proportions apply to the whole country, Brazil has 25% to 65% more highrises than China. Now, since China is building like crazy, in the next 10 years they will probably have more.

Camboriu (from the web):

taken by Alex Vieira da Silva:




In the US few people live in highrise buildings. In Brazil most of the population of large cities reside in highrises. And Brazilian highrises are small (average 15 stories with 3-4 apartments per story), with means that we have a loot of them to house the population! In China the average highrise is about 20 story high with a dozen apartments per story, they can house 3 to 4 times the population that the Brazilian average highrise houses.

For god's sake, Chicago is the second city in US in highrises, while Camboriu is a small city with has about the same number of buildings (even if they are much smaller)!
Interesting!!! But Camboriu has a metro population of nearly 500,000 people and a lot of the buildings along the water are resort/hotel buildings (probably for tourists from Sampa and other places).

The internal Camboriu population swells from 100,000 to 700,000 during the summer.
