A large collection of information and photos of skyscrapers on the Web. Professionally put together, this site has multiple information on each skyscraper listed, such as height, architect, trivia, and photos. While it gathers information from many sources, such as architects directly, there are occasions when heights or other data are incorrect. Still, it is an excellent resource. This site includes spires in the final height but not antennae.
Community-based webpage on skyscrapers. There is a large database of building diagrams submitted by artists from all over the world. There is also a large forum for discussion on tall buildings.
Got a question about a new building going up somewhere? You will most likely find an answer in the skyscrapercity forums, if not in the skyscraperpage forum mentioned above. A huge forum full of skyscraper fans who post pictures of their favourite buildings, towers going up in the world and their city skylines. Skyscrapercity and skyscraperpage forums are the two great skyscraper communities on the web.
