hmm, do you include buildings which are T/O in your list too? i don't think so...
nevertheless, HK has 54 buildings over 200m (if you count ICC and the hanoi road project), NYC has 51 buildings (goldman sachs, if count the setai than i would be 52)! maybe you should open a new thread just for "cities with at least 10 200m buildings" (including T/O or U/C...). but no pics, just a list!

When a building tops out, I revise the list. I have to admit that I'm relying heavily on people to inform me of additions or errors in my numbers. There are too many projects for me to keep an eye on.

So, New York has added 2 over 200 metres since I started the thread? I'll revise New York up to 54.

I wanted the thread to be as inclusive as possible, so I decided to open it up to a simple list of 10 tallest in your city. From that list, came the cities with over 10 towers over 200 metres. This way the viewer also gets to gauge how close all cities are to the benchmark.

I think it's more interesting this way.

Alrighty! I think it's probably at around 7 or 8 buildings over 200 metres, but I could be wrong.

Let me know when a 200 metre building T/O in Busan, and I'll revise the list. Melbourne, Sydney, Guangzhou, Toronto, Dallas, Wuhan, Nanjing, Moscow, Philadelphia, and Dalian are all close to reaching the 10 tower benchmark. Some of these cities should get to 10 by the end of the year. My money is on Nanjing getting there first, followed by Toronto and Guangzhou. We shall see.

I count 10 towers not 9. Petronas should get 2 separate entries, should it not?
