The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has determined that 128 buildings of 200 meters’ height or greater were completed around the world in 2016 – setting a new record for annual tall building completions and marking the third consecutive record-breaking year.




       Further Highlights: ƒ The 128 buildings completed in 2016 beat every previous year on record, including the previous record high of 114 completions in 2015. This brings the total number of 200-meter-plus buildings in the world to 1,168, marking a 441% increase from the year 2000, when only 265 existed.
ƒ     There were eighteen 200-meter-plus buildings completed that became the tallest in a city, country, or region. ƒ 
     A total of 10 supertalls (buildings of 300 meters or higher) were completed in 2016, fewer than we anticipated this time last year, partly as a result of

USA


The tallest building to complete in the US was 30 Park Place, a 282-meter residential / hotel tower in Downtown Manhattan, accommodating a Four Seasons Hotel in the lower portion and luxury apartments above the 40th floor. Notably, the year also saw the opening of 56 Leonard Street, a tower that has been tracked closely throughout its development by the media, given its unique “Jenga-like” design that extrudes upper-level penthouses on cantilevering floor slabs.
