It's an awesome time to see so many of our cities rising again. We've fallen so far behind, but now a new tallest in LA, SF, Philly, and of course NYC is on fire! Go USA!

Of the Big 12 in the US (Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington), half of them are building tallest buildings, which is unprecendented: Los Angeles, Miami, New York (by roof), Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington. Boston is having its biggest skyscraper boom in 40+ years and Chicago has 3+ supertalls in the pipeline. Houston has a new 757' U/C. So really only Atlanta, Dallas and Detroit are taking a break. Then you have boom towns like Seattle which are also building like mad. Crazy good times for American cities!

Exciting time to be alive! Now if we can only get Denver to build a new tallest!

Even Atlanta is booming we just aren't building a new tallest because there is plenty of office space available. Our construction is focusing on apartments right now. It is really good to see the whole country bounce back though. Great time to be a construction lover.

LA actually has one of my favorite skylines.

And something that is hard to appreciate unless you're on the ground: its tallest buildings are very classy.

There was a picture from the top of the rebar core last week that had AON in the background. The core is just about even with the bottom of the AON sign.

Atlanta is not building anything close to a new tallest but it is hardly taking a break. With around 50 towers in some stage of development, there are probably more towers simultaneously underway in the city than ever in its history.


I do agree. This is an exciting time to have so many cities building new tallest towers.
