Top 10 tallest buildings in your city!

I started an analysis in the Canada section that I thought might be fun here. I didn't include proposed buildings or those under construction. They can be added once they have topped out. No city in Canada has all of its top 10 buildings over 200 metres, but will soon. It will be interesting to see which cities do. Is your city in the 200 metre club?

Feel free to add the top 10 in your city no matter how tall or short they are. I'll start off with a few from Canada.


Winnipeg

01 Canwest Place 128 m
02 Richardson Building 124 m
03 Commodity Exchange Tower 117 m
04 Manitoba Hydro Tower 112 m
05 55 Nassau 109 m

06 Le Chateau York 97 m
07 MTS Place Main 96 m
08 Fort Garry Place III 94 m
09 One Evergreen Place 89 m
10 Evergreen Towers 85 m

Toronto

01. First Canadian Place 298m
02. Scotia Tower 275m
03. Canada Trust Tower 261m
04. Commerce Court West 239m
05. TD Tower 223m

06. Bay Adelaide West Tower 218m
07. Bay Wellington Tower 207m
08. Royal Trust Tower 183m
09. Royal Bank Plaza South Tower 180m
10. One King West 176m

* Canadian National Tower 553 m

Calgary

01 Petro Canada West 215 m
02 Bankers Hall - West 197 m
03 Bankers Hall - East 197 m
04 Canterra Tower 177 m
05 Trans Canada Tower 177 m

06 First Canadian Centre 167 m
07 Western Canadian Place - North 164 m
08 TD Canada Trust Tower 162 m
09 Scotia Centre 155 m
10 Nexen Building 153 m

* Calgary Tower 191 m
