I know that Seattle is the city of cranes these days only trailing behind Toronto that has an incredible number of 109. Does anyone have an exact number of cranes currently up and working in Charlotte now? It appears that Portland is kicking our arse and that is a disappointment since they are about the same size.

Portland currently has 1 building under construction over 200 feet, while Charlotte has 7 buildings under construction over 200 feet. I would guess we have more than 30 cranes based off the height of the buildings being built here. Along the Stonewall corridor alone in Uptown there are at least 10 cranes. In addition you have cranes in South Park right now and several in South End. More will be rising soon at sites like the FNB Tower and Market 42 in Uptown. Duke Energy's new tower isn't too far behind in starting construction in the coming months.

At the 300 foot mark, Charlotte has 29 existing buildings over 300 feet tall and 6 Charlotte towers are taller than the tallest building in Portland. Portland has just 16 buildings over 300 feet tall.

Makes you wonder. Good point about so many of their buildings being under 200. Sometimes these competitions paint a flawed picture.

The Charlotte MSA is growing faster than Portland. But perhaps 20 years ago Portland drew an imaginary ring around the city. No building can be built outside this line. This has created higher densities, higher priced housing, and maybe more cranes.

I was just uptown. I counted 15 cranes in the uptown area. Driving north on I-77, I probably saw around four or five dealing with the highway. But, there must be several cranes on South Blvd., Southpark, and Balentyne. Seems as if there are surely more than 30.which Portland claims.
