According to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, the metropolis of Shenzhen in the southern Guangdong province of China has the most buildings measuring over 200 meters tall of any city in the world. Shenzhen is located in southern China. In 1985, the city saw the construction of its first significant high-rise, which measured more than 150 meters in height. Since then, the city has seen the construction of a sea of 120 additional skyscrapers, each of which is taller than 200 meters.

Dubai, which has a total of 107 tall buildings, is the city that comes in second place, trailing Shenzhen by only 13 structures. However, the capital of the emirate can take pride in the fact that it is home to the world's tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa, which stands at around 828 meters in height.

The only city in the United States to make it into the top eight is New York, which has 92 skyscrapers that are higher than 200 meters. In comparison, London ranks 50th despite having 10 buildings that are higher than 200 meters, 30 buildings that are higher than 150 meters, and one building that is higher than 300 meters.

The competition to come out on top is still going strong in spite of everything. In the city of Shenzhen alone, there are now 162 skyscrapers measuring 159 meters or higher that are in the process of being built, at least 40 of which are scheduled to be completed in the year 2022. At least 21 brand new buildings are planned to be constructed in the future years in the city of New York.

It's surprising to see Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur and Indonesia's Jakarta among the top 8 most populous cities in the world.
