Emporis lists Chicago with 25 completed buildings over 200m (with a further 2 u/c over 200m which have topped out), while Miami is listed with 5.

Also, are you planning to use architectural height, height to roof, or height to pinnacle when standardising the list?
Almost all the data has come from SSC threads, SSC forumers, wikipedia, and other online research. Very little has come from emporis. At this point, I think it wise to accept heights listed excluding antenna. If some cities/countries get a slight bump out of that, so be it. It should even out for the most part.

The integrity of the data is important, but in the end, it's really just a gauge of cities/countries around the world. Whether a country has 30 such towers or 25, they're both in the same ball park, so to speak.

It's also important that people not read too much into these figures. The data state how many 200m + towers, nothing less, nothing more.

I wouldn't have pegged that building taller than 200 m. This is officially the most impressive building to make the list. I'll add Casablanca!

ok, i put all sources together (SSC, SSP, emporis etc.). shanghai has 36 buildings over 200m. there are lot skyscrapers U/C right now, so it's very possible that the status here can change pretty fast.

Thank you so much. There are a few cities like that which will constantly need revising: Busan, Shenyang, Panama City, Istanbul, Toronto, Seoul to name a few. I'll change Shanghai's to 36 right now though. Thanks again. Looks like China is on the verge of over taking the United States as the country that is home to the most 200 m+ towers. I bet China is there already, but we just haven't accounted for all of them.

We should have a decent skyscraper resource. A free one doesn't exist, so we SSC'ers might as well produce one.

It looks like China will become host to the most 200 metre towers, if it's not there already.

i'm sure china has already overtaken the US in terms of 200m towers. it's very hard to keep track of the hundreds of skyscrapers which are U/C as we speak.

Do SSC people from China track when buildings top out in their city? They do in the Canada section. Would you mind asking some of them to post info on this thread so this thread becomes a sort of 'open source' data bank that I edit and update?

The only way to keep the data accurate is from constant input from SSC people from around the world. I can keep track of Canada, but need help with the rest.

Thanks. I've been watching 14 hours/day of Olympics, but thought I'd better check in to see if there were any updates. I'll update the 2 lists.

Let me know when it tops out, and I will add Abu Dhabi and the UAE to the lists.
