Global Cities Skyscrapers: 2015 Report

Global Cities Skyscrapers: 2015 Report


April 2015

Skyscrapers are a rising tide in the modern global city. London has added 23 new skyscrapers (a building over 350 feet high) since the turn of the millennium, compared to 17 in the preceding forty years. While New York added four new towers in 2014 alone, including the iconic One World Trade Center. This sounds impressive until one considers that Dubai has built nearly 190 skyscrapers since 2000, and Shanghai over 90. The new enthusiasm for skyscrapers is partly one of city status. Less mentioned are recent changes in how firms perceive offices, particularly in relation to their workers.
