The Results Are In: 2016 Is a Record-Breaking Year for Tall Buildings

In its annual report, the 2016 Tall Building Year in Review, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has announced that 2016 saw the completion of a record 128 buildings 200 meters or higher. This number surpasses the previous record of 114 completions set in 2015. Eighteen of these buildings became the tallest in their city, country, or region, and ten earned the designation of supertall, at 300 meters and above.

The majority of these buildings—107, or 84% of them—stand in Asia, which thusly maintains its position as global skyscraper epicenter. China topped this list with a record 84 completions, including the tallest building among those completed last year, the Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre. The 530-meter mixed-use skyscraper, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, now stands the second-tallest building in China and the fifth-tallest building in the world.

Shenzhen saw the most new 200-meter-plus buildings of any city in 2016 with 11 completions for a total height of 2,608 meters. Tied for second with six buildings each were Guangzhou, China; Chongqing, China; and Goyang, South Korea.
