Well they're both large countries with large populations, unlike the other countries on the list.

So why India, Japan, and Indonesia etc all have huge amounts of buildings? Sure population has some sway, but there's more to it than just that.

It's really amazing that Japan have many cities with over 200 metre buildings, despite the earthquake zone.

But South Korea will surpass Japan and become NO.3 soon or later.
Because South Korea already have many cities with U/C 200 metre, such as Asan(280m), Bucheon(240m), Suwon(+200m) and Jeju(245m) and the towers will be top out soon.

Also, If South korean combines North korea, Pyungyang would be included as korean cities.

Ryukyung Hotel: 330 m

Of course! It's a combination of population, region of the world, and how developed a nation is. The United States scores highly in all these areas. Places like Canada and Australia score well on all except population. If they had 300 million people, they'd likely have 160 towers each. India and Indonesia have massive populations, but aren't as developed as the west. Skyscraper construction is a relatively new phenomena in both countries.

Skyscraper construction grew out of Canada and the United States, spread to Australia/New Zealand, then to Asia, and now to Europe. Europe is way behind due to only becoming a significant builder of skyscrapers over the last 30 years.

Wealth is key. A wealthy industrialized nation fosters lots of large firms which, in turn, creates demand for large quantities of office space. As has been mentioned there are special cased such as Japan. They've only recently started building taller due to concerns over earthquakes. Advances in technology have made tall buildings in Japan possible.

Population is important too. Residential towers are a by product of the population they need to serve. Limited land for a large population will create increased demand for high rise residential construction.

So it's population, wealth, and partly how long these countries have been constructing buildings like this. Canada and the US had a huge head start on the rest.

Advances in technology have made tall buildings in earthquake zones possible. South Korea is certainly building lots of 200 m+ towers, but it should be noted that lots of other countries are too.

The US and China will remain firmly out in front, but there will be a log jam of countries in 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th. The skyscraper race is going to get very interesting over the next 1-2 years!

Let me know when it tops out, and I will add Abu Dhabi and the UAE to the lists.
According to SSC forums. The Skytower is T/O at 310 m so you can add Abu Dhabi and UAE.

It's my thread. If you read the first post, you'll notice that determining how many 200 metre towers were in each city was an intended result. People stopped posting their top 10, so the thread slowly morphed into just a 200 metre tower thread. The 200 m list sprouted from the top 10 list. I might change the title or create a second thread.

This is the first complaint so far, but I do recognize that it's a problem. I haven't decided which is the best route to go at this point.

OK, thanks. Do you think there should be 2 threads though? One that's a top 10, and a second thread that's strictly a 200 metre inventory from around the world?

Would you be my eye on 200 metre buildings U/C in Australia? I have some guy contributing from Indonesia, one from South Korea, one from China. I'm keeping the Canada data accurate, etc.

What will be Australia's 24th or is nothing over 200 m in the pipe right now?

Yeah, I'll happily help where I can.
As for # of threads, if it's easier on you to run two threads, then sure.

Australia's 24th 200m+ building, hmm. This is what we've currently got going on
The Gold Coast:
- 1 (243m)
Brisbane:
- 4 (243m/236m/255m/283m - of which 1 is on hold and one is scrapped and the other two U/C)
Sydney:
- 1 over 200m in the talks
Melbourne:
- 5 proposals (204m/281m+/226m/217m - none of which are even U/C)
Perth:
- 1 (244m)

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4049/...e36b8f3a_o.jpg

Construction diagram. It will either be BHP (Perth) or Soul (The Gold Coast) which finishes first.

Crap! Even with all the 200 metre towers going up in Canada, it's going to be hard to catch up to Australia if all those get built.

So, there are 4 towers in Australia over 200 m that are under construction or approved? That would boost Australia's total from 23 to 27! The towers under construction or approved in Canada would boost our total from 11 to 21. Canada is closing the gap significantly, but catching a moving target just makes it more difficult. Canada needs Montreal, Vancouver, and Edmonton to start contributing. It's all resting on the shoulders of Toronto and Calgary these days!

New 200 metre towers in Canada:

Under Construction:
01. Trump Towers, Toronto: 282 m
02. The Bow, Calgary: 247 m
03. AURA, Toronto: 245 m (applying for height increase)
04. Shangri-La, Toronto: 214 m
05. Ritz-Carlton, Toronto: 213 m
06. Eighth Avenue Place, Calgary: 211 m
07. Four Seasons Hotel, Toronto: 210 m
08. L Tower, Toronto: 205 m

Approved:
09. One Bloor, Toronto: 219 m
10. ICE Condominiums II, Toronto: 216 m

Proposals:
11. Herald Square, Calgary: 223 m
12. Alberta Boots Site, Calgary: 210 m

Top 10 tallest buildings?

No problem!

Ravensburg:


Source

From left to right:

Frauentor (Women's gate). 35,5 m. Northern city gate, first construction in 1318. It was a prison for 150 years. A fire destroyed the interior in 1982.

Tower of the Catholic Liebfrauenkirche. Church first mentioned in 1250, the tower dates from the 16th century.

Tower of St. Jodok Church, inaugurated 1385 (actually, it's on the 12th rank).

Schellenberger Turm. A tower from the 13th century. Its roof and wood construction collapsed in 1773 and were not rebuilt since.

Blaserturm. 51 m. First built in the 13th century, reconstructed in 1556 in renaissance style.

Obertor (Upper gate) (white with red roof). 42 m, 13th century.

Tower of the Municipal Protestant Church (grey with green roof), 1842-1844.

Mehlsack (white, round). Built in 1425, 51 m.

Untertor (Lower gate). 36 m, built in 1363.

The little building on the hill is a little renaissance castle.

3 towers are not in the picture but should be mentioned:

Grüner Turm (Green Tower), from the 15 century. It is named after the green roof tiles and marked the entrance to the Jewish ghetto.

Gemalter Turm (Painted Tower), also 15th century. Height is 50 m.

Both to the left of the picture.

Spitalturm (Hospital Tower). 14th century, height 44 m. To the right of the picture.
