List of tallest buildings in the United States

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The United States is home to some of the world's tallest skyscrapers; eleven American buildings have held the title of tallest building in the world, and every titleholder from 1890 to 1998 was in the United States.[1] New York and Chicago have always been the centers of US skyscraper building. The 10-story Home Insurance Building, built in Chicago in 1885, is regarded as the world's first skyscraper; the building was constructed using a novel steel-loadbearing frame. As of 2011, only 4 of the 25 tallest buildings in the world are in the United States; before 1990, the US had had all of the top ten tallest buildings. As of 2013, One World Trade Center in New York City is the tallest skyscraper in The United States. Its spire brings the structure to a symbolic height of 1,776 feet (541 m), connoting the year The Declaration of Independence was signed, though the tip of the structure actually is measured at 1,792 ft (546.2 m).[2] However, One World Trade Center's roof, observation deck elevation and highest occupied floor are all surpassed by Willis Tower.[3]

Prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City, the twin towers of the World Trade Center occupied the second and third positions on the list below. The North Tower stood at 1,368 feet (417 m), while the South was 1,362 feet (415 m) tall. They are the only buildings that would have qualified for the list but which are no longer standing.

The Chicago Spire (previously known as the Fordham Spire) was under construction in Chicago, Illinois in 2008, but has not had any work done since. However, a reorganization proposal has been sent into the city, which may be approved by August 2014; if completed, it will be the tallest building in the United States, rising 2,000 ft into the sky. In July 2011, real estate developer Bill Davies announced a proposal for a massive Old Chicago Main Post Office Redevelopment plan for Downtown Chicago that would include a 120 story twin tower that would also rise 2,000 feet (610 m). Other tall buildings that are either proposed or under construction include the Wilshire Grand Tower in Los Angeles (1,100 feet (335 m), the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center in Philadelphia (1,121 feet (342 m), the Salesforce Tower (1,070 feet (326 m) in San Francisco, and One Bayfront Plaza (1,010 feet (308 m) in Miami, Florida. The Comcast Innovation and Technology Center in Downtown Philadelphia will become the tallest building in the country outside of New York and Chicago.

Tallest buildings[edit]

This lists ranks completed and topped out buildings in the United States that stand at least 300 feet (91 m) tall, based on standard height measurement. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts. An equal sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings. The "Year" column indicates the year in which a building was completed.
