List of tallest buildings in Taiwan

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Tallest buildings in Taiwan. The buildings in blue indicate that they are currently under construction.

This list of skyscrapers in Taiwan ranks skyscrapers in Taiwan by height. The tallest building in Taiwan is currently the 101–story Taipei 101, which rises 509.2 metres (1,671 ft) and was completed in 2004. It was officially classified as the world's tallest from 2004 to 2010. Now, it is still the tallest building in Taiwan, Asia's 6th tallest building and the world's 9th tallest building. There are currently six buildings over 200m under construction in Taiwan, including the Taipei Twin Tower 1, which is under planning and will reach 337 metres (1,106 ft) and the Taipei Sky Tower, which is under construction in Taipei and will reach 280 metres (919 ft).

Unlike other Asian countries with numerous skyscrapers exceeding 400 meters in height, Taiwan's skyscrapers are, on average, relatively shorter (except for Taipei 101). This is because construction is difficult since Taiwan's geographical position is, similar to Japan, located very close to the boundary between the Eurasian Plate and the Philipine Plate, thus it is prone to many earthquakes. Therefore, all buildings above 50 metres must be as earthquake-proof as possible and adhere to numerous strict structural standards set by the government to ensure safety.

Tallest Buildings in Taiwan[edit]

>150m/490ft[edit]

Only buildings over 150 m (490 ft) (as determined by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat) are included. An equal sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings. The "Year" column indicates the year of completion.[1] The list includes only habitable buildings, as opposed to structures such as observation towers, radio masts, transmission towers and chimneys.
