High-Rise Trend Report

New, 14 comments

Until the Great Recession's reality check, Chicago's high-rise construction was fearsome. As demand for towers climbs once more, a new document of the scope of high-rise building (defined within as 18+ stories) in the U.S. shows just how dominant Chicagoland has been in the new Millennium. The region ranked second in high-rise completions since 2000 (149), total high-rises (701), and in completions per capita. New York ran away with the first two categories, but fell short in per capita. The two cities combined for nearly half of all high-rise completions in the nation.
