In 2014, 97 buildings of 200 meters’ height or greater were completed – a new record

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has released its annual report indicating all-time record 97 buildings of 200 meters or higher has completed in 2014.

Every year, the CTBUH provides an outline of tall buildings completed during the subject year, with a focus on buildings over 200 meters in height. In 2014, the number of buildings entering the World’s 100 tallest list was 13, one more than in 2013.

This was the “tallest year ever”: a total of 11 super-talls (buildings of 300 meters or higher) was completed in 2014 producing the highest annual total on record.

2015 promises to be more active than 2014. The Council currently projects the completion of between 105 and 130 buildings of 200 metres height or greater, eight to 15 of which will be super-talls, and one of which will be a mega-tall: the Shanghai Tower.

For the seventh year in a row, China continues to see new 200-metre-plus completions in cities that previously had few or no such buildings, indicating that the massive plan to urbanize the country is underway.
