About the formula of Skyline Rankings

It is drawn entirely from statistics in’s database, and reflects only completed high-rise buildings as defined by the Emporis Standards Committee (ESC).

This calculation does not include TV towers, masts, bridges, or other structures.

Each building is assigned points based on its floor count (see the table to the right). The point total for each city is calculated automatically and displayed.

Points per Building
12..19 floors = 1 point
20..29 floors = 5 points
30..39 floors = 25 points
40..49 floors = 50 points
50..59 floors = 100 points
60..69 floors = 200 points
70..79 floors = 300 points
80..89 floors = 400 points
90..99 floors = 500 points
100+ floors = 600 points
