moderator's remarks

If buildings are connected with bridge (e. g. Petronas Towers) or have common stylobate (e. g. Nina Towers), we usually add them as one entry.


If construction of building is in the phase of excavation, we consider the building is still proposed, not being under construction.


If you want to add few similar structures, please do them in single request form, but specify their differences (e. g. addresses, coordinates).


What the structure types are wished in SkyscraperPage diagram:
  • Highrises – all
  • Lowrises – remarkable sights, which you are going to draw, but taller than 20 m
  • Churches and mosques – taller than 20 m
  • Stadiums – -"- 20 m
  • Towers – taller than 35 m
  • Truss towers – -"- 70 m
  • Guyed masts – -"- 100 m
  • Chimneys – -"- 100 m
  • Bridges – -"- 35 m
  • Poles – -"- 35 m
  • Pyramids – -"- 35 m
  • Spheres – -"- 35 m
  • Statues – -"- 35 m
  • Ferris wheels, vertical rides, roller coasters – -"- 35 m
  • Water towers – -"- 35 m
  • Silos – -"- 35 m
  • Frames – -"- 70 m
  • Vehicles – we don't need them no more
  • Offshore – we don't need them no more
  • Unknown – taller than 70 m
  • Others – -"- 70 m

How to make a handy link with building coordinates

open Google.com/maps and find your building

right click in center of building base

click on coordinates in menu below

map will be centered on the building, building marked

so copy coordinates from menu at left side and paste them into request

another handy way is with wikimapia

open Wikimapia.org and move a map to make a cross on center of building base

click on coordinates at left bottom corner

copy decimal coordinates separated with coma and paste them into request

(coordinates in Western and/or Southern hemisphere will have - sign)

Adding some rows...

Any registered participant can request changes or incorporation of new data in the database and diagram ... we value your time making a request, please consider also the time of editor, please no more than 3 structures per request.

Although this website has included and continues to include in its database and diagram some structures/buildings that are not skyscrapers, we use to consider some significant elements for the city or country where they are, we prefer not to include buildings/structures less than 40 meters (131') in general, nor thin elements, our diagram has a scale of 1 pixel per meter and very thin or not very tall structures are not easily identifiable with those dimensions or less.
Items that aren't structures will be rejected: such as trees, fountains, waterfalls, geiser, mountains, animals, humans, etc.
Other not good request are personal homes or very repetitive structures like telecommunications towers, electrical conduction towers, flagpoles, billboards, elevated tanks, wind turbines, etc. only significant elements please.

IMPORTANT: We should prioritize skyscrapers and highrise buildings, and especially prioritize one's which are requested to be added because someone has done a drawing of it.

To request the incorporation / modification of new data in the database:

* Please Verify that the incorporation / modification to be requested is not already included in the database.
* Clearly indicate the Source / Origin of the information.
* Include for verification and proof of facts the most data available that you find, like link(s) to source of information, photograph, architectonic graphic representation or elements that can validate the request ... we do not revelate copyright images or source individual names or delicate info but is neccesary to be provided on your requests (if you or your source requires to be anonymous you could use Private Messaging).

* If the request is a modification/correction to the SkyScraperPage database: Always indicate the identification number in the database with the electronic address of the item to be edited with the format: http://www.skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=0000

... In case of being a new building, on the top of your request indicate location: Country, State and City
... In case of being a city, also request a valid new building/structure to justify the inclusion (a city without buildings may be hidden to the list of cities)

For all kind of requests, please: the most information you could provide the less problems to solve your request.

Please also consider: If your request is for a building into a complex with two buildings or more and they shares structures and/or visible levels (main level, parking levels, mall levels, skybridges, etc.) requires only one request for the entire group of buildings.

These are the formats that we have to use and fill out as much as possible, try to follow the same sequence:


* Name of the building: ... If unknown, exact address is accepted; -important- the name should not be translated or transliterated, if the name is "Tour Dorée" it should not be translated to "Golden Tower" and vice versa.
- Native name ... this field only applies when the language used in the name of the building does not use Latin characters (Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Arab, Korean, etc.)
* Other names may also be included: Old / Popular / Unofficial (they will not be visible, are only included for database search)
* Exact address: street and exterior number, neighborhood if there are many streets of the same name in municipality; postal code. If exterior number is unknown please mention streets crossing.
* Interesting data of the building or project such as: architect, engineering company, as well as other relevant data of the building, such as number of floors shared with other buildings, if it's a group of buildings the number of floors per building, individual names of each building, tall of each building, if got shopping malls, parking floors, etc., please not "amenities" such as pool, spa, gym or other spaces except if are relevant by their dimensions with respect to the project and represent something truly special.
* Link to the building's website: They do not refer to indirect sources of information such as reports, design catalog, investment catalog, etc. but to the building page itself. If the building is a hotel, provide webpage only if there's info about building, not only about hotel operator, and never the booking page.
* Link to Wikipedia, Skyscrapercenter, Structurae and if exists thread into skyscraperpage.com

* Geographic location (coordinates)
For coordinates please draw some hidden lines between corners on the main level of the building to find the center.


* If you have an image or file that corroborates the "official" value of height, please attach it (or link to its location), if it is an estimated value, please indicate how it was calculated; Websites specialized in skyscrapers or with specific chapters of skyscrapers such as Emporis, CTBUH, Wikipedia, Skycrapercity, Skycrapercenter, etc. not always have entirelly accurate information regarding height, their data is not considered as "official" just good reference but not always correct.
In Skyscraperpage we try to inquire about real or official heights, however many of the real height values ​​are very difficult to be known, so we also present "estimates" from the editor, these generally appear "hidden" in the database/diagram, it is correct to present an estimated height data but it is very likely that the data estimated by the editor is the one that appears in the database.


* Status: Not always is a good idea to have an entry on the database by years with status "Proposed" or with a starting year far away to the current or next year... We know sometimes a "proposed" project may get some difficulties before turning to "Under Construction" or "Cancelled" , if a starting/finishing date is unknown or too far please consider status "vision" as more adecuate on your request. Some "proposals" not always became to real developments, if you see creative renders but without an intended date of beggining and/or with no developer or confirmed place of construction, perhaps are in fact only creative exercises, more if are rare designs and hard to be built, please also consider the status "vision". We try as much as possible to have a reliable database, please remind what "Fantasy" means, a lot of not real projects could turns database into a not reliable source, please think twice for that kind of requests (Explain as most as possible the reason for request).
Starting some works is not the same to "Under Construction" status. Nor first-stone event, neither approved drawings, approved permisions nor demolitions and excavations, are considered under-construction status, only when permanent reinforced concrete or steel elements above the ground are built on site.
If the construction of building was stopped (status On hold) few years ago, the construction date finished can be a year of last progress in construction site.
Note: We have not available other options for status.
* Dates: Please only verifiable info, no estimate data
* Floors: Consider those that also have a roof, so the main floor is added, mezzanines, levels of distribution, attic, levels of machine rooms, levels of covering staircases, levels below the access but with windows or doors to the outside , 13th level, etc., they all add up.

* They are considered "underground" levels those that having a floor and ceiling below ground level and do not have windows or direct access (at same level) to the outside, it is also considered underground that with a half level or lower to a entrance floor.
* Unit count, Depends usage:
Exclusively Hotel = Rooms
Exclusively Residential = Appartments
Exclusively Parking = Number of cars of capacity
Stadium/Cinema/Theatre = Number of spectators
Mixed use / other = Not to use (please use "description")


Note: We have not available other options for "building uses" & "type"

If you've done a drawing of the building you are posting a request for, use the thumbs up icon when posting the thread. This will alert the editors that you have a drawing ready to go and priority will be given to these requests.
