Matching the height of Willis Tower (North America’s #2), this work from Pei Cobb Freed & Partners also reflects Willis’ form – and Chicago’s Trump Tower – with tiered volumes stepping up to 442 metres. It will be among the world’s tallest all-residential structures.

Completion: 2017

5. Nanning Logan Century 1, Nanning, China

This number from Dennis Lau & Ng Chun Man Architects & Engineers will climb 383 metres, topped by a helipad. The design mimics and simplifies the neo-Gothic spires of an earlier skyscraper boom à la the Woolworth and Empire State Buildings.

Completion: 2017

6. Three Sixty West Tower B, Mumbai, India

Kohn Pedersen Fox is back with this 90-storey residential building. Zigzagging cuts in the curtainwall break up the monotony of yet another boxy tower.

Completion: 2017

7. Suning Plaza Tower 1, Zhenjiang, China
