LIC Building, the first skyscraper of Chennai

This list of tallest buildings in Chennai ranks high-rise buildings in Chennai, India based on official height.[1] Unlike other metropolitan cities in the country, Chennai continues to experience a horizontal growth (that is, expanding continuously in its area) rather than a vertical growth by means of building more skyscrapers, owing to the presence of weather radar at the Chennai Port, which prohibits construction of taller buildings beyond its permissible limits.[2] The maximum permissible building height in Chennai was limited to 40 m until 1998, when it was increased to 60 m.[3][4] This restriction continued until the second master plan of the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority was rolled out in 2008, after which the restriction was lifted.[5][6] Until then, the LIC Building at Anna Salai, with 15 floors, dominated the city's skyline. However, after the big companies started building tall concrete structures in the city, the skyline started changing, especially along the periphery.[7]

Currently, Bayview tower of Hiranandani is the tallest building in Chennai with a maximum height of 140 metres (459 ft) and 40 floors.[8]

Many more high-rises are already under construction in the city and dozens are proposed. However, the height of the buildings in the central business district has seldom gone beyond 20 floors. Most of the high rises in Chennai are residential buildings.

In 2017, the Tamil Nadu Housing Board conceived a plan to build a twin tower at Anna Salai, Nandanam, one 50 stories (230 meters) and the other 35 stories (130 meters), both linked with a skybridge at the 20th floor.[9]
