Facts & Figures

Recommended Posts

Hello, i was inspired by an SSP subforum to create a thread here about the total number of highrises 12+ approved, proposed, U/C in your city. All you have to do is list the total number approved + proposed + U/C = Total in your city and the tallest out of all. You may also list the number of buildings that have already been completed separately. :)

Honolulu City:

Completed: 431 *That have been counted so far

Total: 20 buildings

Tallest: 47 stories (residential) U/C

Suburbs:

Completed: 18 *That have been counted so far

Total: 2

Tallest: 13 stories (time-share) both U/C

*Some info was from Emporis others are from my own research.

Mississauga:

Tallest completed: 36 stories, 369 feet (it appears taller than 369 feet in person, but this is the height from skyscrapers.com)

Tallest under construction: 34 stories

hey urban guy, can you say 120ft and up? b/c plenty of buildings in KC don't have 12 floors, but are well above the 120ft mark. Like our federal courthouse is about 300ft and is only 10-11 floors.

We suck here in Salt Lake.

My english class was having a discussion about water usage and conservation and the trading of water, etc. and my teacher told me that Utah was one of the first states to go "dry". Meaning that they can only sustain the current population with the water they have, they cannot grow anymore. I don't know if that is a factor in Salt Lake's "suck"ing...

The casino is not approved, but the design is finished, and the site preparation has occured. The Detroit city council is slow, and has not yet approved the design, even though they've had years to.

176 skyscrapers

but the invasion of Cleveland is underway so we should be adding lots more phaylic symbols to our collection! (they are so weak and helpless since they have no weapons of war like 4 mighty lombardi trophies or 5 mighty world series trophies and no stanley cups or National College Football Championship trophies to defend their tiny burgh) :lol::lol::lol:

Since Toronto has already been done, I'll do the suburb that I live in + my closest regional city:

Burlington, Ontario - Emporis says 36 high-rises completed but I'd bet there's more than that

Hamilton - 105 completed, 2 U/C, 1 proposed according to Emporis

Actually i think it would be better if you guys left out demolished, never built or maybe even reconstruction? Those on hold is okay cause there's that possiblity that they might get built. :P

Isn't a building a highrise with 10 or 11 floors ?

I mean, why not start at 10 even or 100 ft even ?

Besides, different buildings have different heights, so one building with less floors could be taller than the other.

I'm not suggesting this to up Detroits rank, I could care less.

But, it would also give other citys more.

It just makes more sense to start at an even 100 ft. or 10 stories, which ever comes first.

The way I see it is...A skyscraper is different than highrise.

But I see people calling 12 or 13 storie buildings, skyscrapers.

This is how I would organize the category.

Skyscraper_250 ft. and or 20 stories and up.

Highrise(19th century skyscraper standards)_100 ft. and or 10 stories and up to...

Midrise(those odd buildings that are taller than average buildings, but not quite a highrise)_50 ft. and or 5 stories and up to...

Lowrise_everyday houses and buildings and so forth.

This way seems more simple and makes mores sense imo.

There are rumors of a 12 story building being built near the airport

and there are rumors of a proposed downtown high-rise apartment tower near the future ballpark.

Providence, Rhode Island

When reading these numbers remember, there is a reason we are called the biggest little state in the union. ;)

25 Buildings over 12 stories

Tallest:

The Fleet Bank Building*

AKA: The Superman Building, AKA: Industrial Trust Building, AKA: Industrial National Bank Building

428 feet, 26 stories, completed in 1928

2nd Tallest:

Fleet Boston Building*

AKA: Hospital Trust Tower, AKA: Bankboston Tower

410 feet, 26 stories, completed in 1973

3rd Tallest:

Westin Providence

329 feet, 25 stories, completed in 1993

4 Building over 12 stories proposed

GTECH World Headquarters

Parcel 2 (3 Buildings)

There is a much less defined proposal for a second convention centre hotel which could be 20 stories or more if built.

*With the BofA takeover of Fleet I have no idea what will happen to the names of these buildings. Fleet no longer owns either building and I don't know if they currently retain naming rights for them. There is a 3rd building on Kennedy Plaza officially called Fleet Centre but commonly reffered to a One Financial Centre.
