Earlier today, I stumbled on an article about the building boom currently going in Montreal. While nothing new to me, what caught me by surprise is the number of cranes in Montreal, 150 cranes. I knew already that we had $25B in investments right now, but 150 cranes? that's amazing. But it also got me thinking if we have 150, how many does NYC have? or Toronto? or Chicago? the point of this thread is to see the number of cranes per city/metro area and have they increased, decreased or stayed the same in recent years?

Seattle has 58 cranes up, which is apparently the most for any city in the US.

That titles probably goes to Toronto. I remember a couple of years ago the number of highrises under construction was more than NYC and Chicago combined. Half of downtown looks like a construction zone for the past decade and there are still quite many new projects in the pipeline.

It would seem Miami's 119 takes the cake over lower numbers and "perceptions".

I remember when Hurricane Irma came they said the whole county had 25 cranes. And I know Miami is still building like crazy, but 119 projects within those areas? sounds excessive.
