The tallest buildings in Argentina are primarily residential and are almost all located in Buenos Aires, the Argentine capital city and a major metropolitan area within South America.[1] Most of the buildings were completed after 2000, with some notable exceptions being the Kavanagh building, an Art Deco skyscraper completed in 1936, and the Alas Building, commissioned by President Juan Perón in 1950 and completed in the late 1950s.[2]

On September 10, 2014, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner also announced the awarding of a contract to construct a 335-metre-tall building, the "Polo Audiovisual", in Buenos Aires to serve as the headquarters of the biggest film-making studios in Latin America. The building was planned to be the tallest in Latin America,[3] but as of 2016 the project remains in limbo.
