The Tallest buildings in China in 2015. (Heights labeled in meters.)

China has the largest number of tall buildings in the world, surpassing that of the United States and Japan combined.[1][2] As of early 2017, China has more than 1420 skyscrapers above 150 meters (492 ft) of which 48 are super-tall (300 meters/984 ft and above).[2][3]

List[edit]

As it is impractical to list all of its skyscrapers, the table below is an incomplete list of skyscrapers in China which ranks buildings that stand at least 260 m (850 ft) tall, sorted by height.
