Tall Buildings from around the World

What is a tall building? How is a building’s height measured?  The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) is the world’s leading body in the field of tall buildings and the recognized source of information on tall buildings internationally. It is the arbiter of the criteria upon which tall building height is measured, and thus the title of “The World’s Tallest Building” determined.

While the tallest building (height to tip) currently is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, Chicago’s Willis Tower and John Hancock Center and New York’s Empire State Building are the domestic buildings that make the top 10.

CTBUH also houses a wealth of information about tall buildings. There are annual reviews of tall buildings, as well as photo archives and technical papers for review.

Churchill has short-term corporate housing nationwide. Please contact us at 866-255-0593 for more information.
