Kolkata (কোলকাতা/কলকাতা) has numerous high-rises in Chowringhee which is the Central Business District Area or CBD of the city. Chatterjee International Center (24 floors) was the tallest office building in the city and also the tallest of its type in all of Eastern India with a height of 91 metres (299 ft). It was opened in 1976 in Chowringhee, thus making it one of the oldest high-rises in the city. Several other high-rises such as Tata Centre (18 floors), 79.2 metres (260 ft) and Everest House (21 floors), 84 metres (276 ft) are also located in Chowringhee. Apart from the CBD, the region of B.B.D. Bagh and Babughat also have several high-rises. The Salt Lake City and Rajarhat New Town regions (which already have several high-rises) are undergoing a massive construction boom, with hundreds of high-rises under construction. The city got its first residential high-rise in 2004 when the 'Peak' block was opened in Hiland Park. It has 28 floors with a height of 86 metres (282 ft). This created a new idea of constructing residential high-rises other than office buildings or commercial buildings. In 2008, South City Towers (36 floors), 117 metres (384 ft) were completed near Jodhpur Park in South Kolkata which became the first 100 metres (328 ft) plus buildings of the city. Again in October 2013, Towers 2 and 6 of Urbana topped out which are currently the tallest buildings in the city. All these developments have changed the skyline of this city. The 42 which is currently topped out having a height of 268 metres (879 ft) and with 62 floors making it the tallest building in the state. There are plans to extend the Urbana society to the group of buildings called Urbana II and the Urbana Twisted Tower, which are over 200 and 300 metres tall respectively.

Ideal Heights is the tallest building in Central Kolkata.
