Hong Kong has overtaken New York in the number of skyscrapers
The first place in the world in terms of the number of high-rise buildings is a small Hong Kong. Currently, there is registered 294 skyscraper with a height of more than 150 m. The highest in the city is the 484-meter tower of the International Business Center. The number of floors in it reaches 118. In the metropolis there are six buildings with a height of more than 300 meters.
In Hong Kong, skyscrapers are often not office buildings, but residential complexes. Many giant buildings are being built on land reclaimed from the sea due to land shortages. All of these mega-rugged structures are capable of withstanding earthquakes and typhoon strikes. Engineers and designers have provided skyscrapers with bright evening lighting and feng shui elements. The very first skyscraper, Jardine House (179 m), appeared here in 1973.
The top five world leaders in the number of skyscrapers include New York (229), Dubai (140 towers), Shanghai (118) and Tokyo (113).
