check this out, according to the SSP data base, in 1990:

US/Canada: 474 >150m / 12 >300m
rest of the world: 158 >150m / 1 >150m

my how things changed over the past 3 decades.
Yeah, as late as 1990, skyscrapers = US/Canada. Even well into the 1990’s.

Europe is worth mentioned as half of it has been developed for a very long time and they build no skyscrapers and suddenly they decide they should be some as well. But of course, most of change came from East/Southeast Asia and Middle East.

Main issue with SF is housing prices. VCs were complaining, rightfully so, that most of their startup invested capital was simply going to San Francisco landlords and not into building companies. Miami real estate is much cheaper compared to SF, add to that low taxes, and lax regulatory environment with local politicians that actually want new tech companies to open up shop in the city. Similar reason why Austin is booming as well.

Not much different than a standard apartment building really except the ownership of the units is crowdsourced.

Also, I'm a bit late to the party here but Metro Vancouver is currently at 106 highrises U/C. This number is quite accurate as each crane is tracked on a crowd sourced document and updated by the community. The actual number is likely a bit higher than 106 since projects that lose their crane are removed from the list even though completion of a highrise often takes months after the removal of the tower crane.

Take a look here for info and detail

Yeah it's changed a ton. Not sure what occurred in the mid 90's, a sort of drought, but after the 2008 collapse, the recovery witnessed a bonanza.

===> SCROLL

For the U.S..

Since the AON Center has a proposed renovation in 2023, it shows on 2023 instead of 1973.

^ ohhh, ok.

That's pretty damn weird.

Someone over at the CTBUH should fix that in their data.
