- One Central Park, Sydney, Australia (Asia & Australia)
- De Rotterdam, Rotterdam, Netherlands (Europe)
- Cayan Tower, Dubai, UAE (Middle East & Africa)

An overall winner for the 'Best Tall Building Worldwide' will be named from the four regional winners, following presentations from the owners and architects of each building, at the CTBUH 13th Annual Awards Symposium, which will take place at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, on 6 November.

The symposium will be followed by the Awards Ceremony and Dinner in the Crown Hall, designed by Mies van der Rohe. The 10-Year, Urban Habitat, Lifetime Achievement, Building Performance and Innovation awards will be announced in the coming weeks, and will also feature at November’s awards events.
