What cities in America are currently building skyscrapers? What cities are having skyscrapers proposed? I recently saw a 54 story building was proposed in downtown Cleveland, and that made me wonder what other cities are building up.

Seattle currently looks like a sea of cranes, with over 100 projects going on in December. Across Lake Washington in Bellevue, there is a similar look with many new buildings going up, including one 450' tall structure that has already managed to lease out part of it before it has been built.

Los Angeles is building what will be the city's tallest building in the Wilshire Grand (1000+), a project called Metropolis with (I think) two towers under construction (~400 foot range), a project called Figuaroa Central with three skyscrapers (400-600 feet), plus three or four smaller high rise projects scattered about Dtla.

In Century City there is a tower being built and I think it's in the 600 foot range.


These are the ones UC, there are several proposed towers Downtown, Koreatown, Hollywood and even the Westside.

We have a few skyscrapers going up now in Portland with more on the way, and then even more buildings in general going up all over the place.

PNC is currently building a 545' skyscraper in Pittsburgh that will be finished by the end of the summer this year.

Cities generally don't build many skyscrapers, its usually private concerns that think they can use the extra office space.

Nice list! Keep them coming. Philly looks impressive.

Baltimore could be breaking ground on several skyscrapers this year including a 44 story apartment tower and the 30 story office tower.
