World's Tallest Cities - Cities with most skyscrapers 2021

This is a new video that I made about cities with most skyscrapers on each habited continent, 36 cities, 6 continents! I hope it fits in this part of the forum, even if it is mostly for photography. All videos and images are copyright free with no credits needed (from sites as Pexels, Videezy etc).
I hope to get as many subscribers as possible, so please go to the link, like and subscribe, I would be very grateful. Please comment on the Youtube site.


World's Tallest Cities - part 1




This is a journey to the world’s tallest cities. The cities on each continent that have the largest number of skyscrapers.
The definition of a skyscraper according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat is a building that is at least 150m tall (about 492 feet) to the pinnacle, that is the top of the spire or roof. (Supertalls are at least 300m tall and Megatalls 600m.)
Masts are not counted, but spires are. Spires are integral parts of the building in contrary to masts, that are placed on top.
TV towers, radio masts and bridges for example are not counted as they are not multi-storey buildings, they are just structures.
Skyscrapers under construction with expected completion in 2021 will also be included.
The six habited continents will be presented, with the continent with the tallest cities first and the continent with least tall buildings in the last part. Each continent will include six cities. Some cities include buildings in the metro area, if they are very close to the central city.
The sources are quoted in the description below.

Toronto will be moving well up the rankings over the next couple years, it is currently #18 on the CTBUH list, with 68 skyscrapers over 150 meters. By 2024, the city will have 114 skyscrapers, 35 over 200 meters, and 2 supertalls. 114 would put Toronto currently in 10th place, but of course by 2024 it will probably be closer to #14 or so.

Calgary may also move up the list a bit this year. Currently #60 on the list, and two skyscrapers of 150 meters are finishing up over the next few months, giving us a total of 20 not including the Calgary Tower, tied with Boston at #57. The city also has 5 buildings over 200 meters, slightly ahead of Boston's 4. Boston does however have 2 over 200 meters UC and another 2 UC over 150 meters.

Montreal will also be moving up the rankings from current #92 with 11 skyscrapers. By 2024 the city will have 16 skyscrapers, and 8 over 200 meters. 16 would put it at current 67th place, just behind Xi'an.
