The lists of tallest buildings in the Philippines, which ranks skyscrapers throughout the country.

Tallest completed buildings[edit]

This list ranks the highest completed skyscrapers and buildings in the Philippines. Buildings and skyscrapers included here stand at least 150 metres (492 ft) tall, based on standard height measurement. This has been shortened because there is a very high number of highrise buildings between 100 metres (328 ft) and 150 metres (492 ft) within the country. (See also the more updated List of tallest buildings in Metro Manila.)
