One World Trade Center in New York City, tallest building in the United States

The world's first skyscraper was built in Chicago in 1885. Since then, the United States has been home to some of the world's tallest skyscrapers. New York City, specifically the borough of Manhattan, notably has the tallest skyline in the country. Eleven American buildings have held the title of tallest building in the world (9 in New York City).[1] New York City and Chicago have always been the centers of American skyscraper building. The 10-story Home Insurance Building, built in Chicago in 1885, is regarded as the world's first skyscraper; the building was constructed using a novel steel-loadbearing frame which became a standard of the industry worldwide.[2]

As of 2018, One World Trade Center in New York City is considered to be the tallest skyscraper in the United States. Its spire brings the structure to a symbolic height of 1,776 feet (541 m), connoting the year the U.S. Declaration of Independence was signed, though the tip of the structure actually is measured at 1,792 ft (546 m).[3] However, using the more common criterion for the height of a building (the roof, not antenna) the observation deck elevation and highest occupied floor of One World Trade Center are surpassed by Chicago's Willis Tower (formerly and still commonly known as the Sears Tower)[4] and 432 Park Avenue.

Prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City, the twin towers of the World Trade Center occupied the second and third positions on the list below, behind Willis Tower. The North Tower stood at 1,368 feet (417 m), while the South Tower was 1,362 feet (415 m) tall. If they were still standing today, they would occupy the fourth and fifth positions on the list below, with their replacement—One World Trade Center—being excluded.

There are numerous supertall buildings both proposed and under construction throughout the country, concentrated in New York City and Chicago. In New York City, Central Park Tower, 111 West 57th Street and One Vanderbilt are all currently under construction and planned to rise at least 1,400 feet (430 m). Notable projects under construction in Chicago include Vista Tower, designed by Jeanne Gang, and NEMA Chicago, designed by Rafael Vinoly. Other tall buildings that are proposed include the 1,010-foot-tall (310 m) One Bayfront Plaza and One Brickell City Centre in Miami.

Tallest buildings[edit]

This list ranks completed and Topped-out buildings in the United States that stand at least 700 feet (213 m) tall, based on standard height measurement which includes spires and architectural details, but excludes antenna masts. An equal sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings. The "Year" column indicates the year in which a building was completed.
