Shanghai Tower in Shanghai is the tallest building in China

China has the largest number of tall buildings in the world, surpassing that of the top ten largest, the United States (840+), United Arab Emirates (310+), South Korea (270+), Japan (260+), Malaysia (140+), Australia (130+), Indonesia (120+), Thailand (120+) and Canada (120+) combined.[1][2] As of early 2022, China has more than 2600 skyscrapers above 150 meters (492 ft) of which 100 are "supertall" (300 meters (984 ft) and above).[2][3] The tallest tower in China is currently the Shanghai Tower, located in the namesake city at a height of 632 meters (2,073 ft); it is the third-tallest building in the world. The previous 2 tallest buildings in mainland China have also been in Shanghai.

The Chinese economic reform from 1978 onwards lead to a significant improvement in quality of living and economic capital, despite significantly increasing social and economic inequalities[citation needed]. 45 of the 84 buildings (completed and architecturally topped out) with a minimum height of 350 meters (1,150 ft) worldwide are in China (including Hong Kong).

Cities with buildings over 150 meters[edit]

This is a list which ranks Chinese cities that have at least 10 completed skyscrapers as of May 2022 that are taller than 150 m (492 ft)[4]
