In addition to how beautiful some of these new and proposed skyscrapers look, I am elated that cities have gone forward with building them. For awhile after 9/11 I think many people felt that the era of tall buildings, particularly in the U.S., was over. Fortunately, there have been no similar attacks since and public sentiment has changed.

you make a good point, when 9/11 happened in NYC i thought NYC was done for gone and soon to be deserted but it bounced back.

Bothering? Im sorry i didn't mean to bother you. The poster just mentioned which ones weren't supertalls so i just told the other ones that weren't. I mean don't get me wrong, The buildings going up impress me more than any other city in the Western Hempisphere, but not all of them are supertalls is all im saying.

These Are the only supertalls in the US going up or proposed:

Boston 115 Federal Street
Chicago Chicago Spire
Chicago Trump International Hotel & Tower
Chicago Waldorf=Astoria
Chicago Waterview Tower
Las Vegas Crown Las Vegas
Miami One Bayfront Plaza
Miami Empire World Towers
Nashville Signature Tower
New York One Bryant Park (Bank of America Tower)
New York 2WTC, 3WTC, 4WTC
New York 80 South Street
New York Brookfield Properties Towers
New York City Tech Tower
New York Freedom Tower (1WTC)
New York Hotel Pennsylvania Tower
New York The GiraSole
New York The Hudson Yards
New York Midtown Towers
New York Tour de Verre
New York New York Tower (55th Street & 8th Avenue)
New York Tishman Speyer Towers - New York
Philadelphia American Commerce Center
San Francisco Transbay Tower

(+++ SUPERTALL QUICK LINKS: FIND A THREAD FAST +++ - SkyscraperCity)

As you can see, BY FAR, NY leads in supertall developments
