^ and if that curve continues, there will will be millions of 700+ footers by the end of this century.




of course, something will eventually give and we'll get a plateau at some point.

Time to crush the skyscraper ego, and just how far behind the U.S. has gotten.






U.S. super talls and the global competition. Proposed, u/c, complete. 300.0m onward.






Now… to China. Which deserves respect. U/C, complete, proposed.

Eh, it's sort of pointless to compete with China, they have well over a billion people and construction is cheap(er).

The US is still a very distant second, the UAE a very distant third.

Its like traveling from Earth to Alpha Centauri instead of Pluto. The gap is in light years.

But I just wanted to show the difference. Not for any versus purposes, just for statistics. U.S. is still very impressive, but damn, China is on fire.

Yea China is insane...

I still prefer North American skylines (although some Chinese buildings are cool)
