List of largest "stand alone" skyscrapers in the world by square footage....


1. Willis/Sears Tower, Chicago -- 4.56022 million ft -- even with its "tallest building in the world" glory days now behind it, this grand ole man is still the biggest and beefiest tower on the block.


2. CTF Finance Center, Guangzhou, China -- according to wikipedia - The skyscraper has a gross floor area of 5,464,633 square feet (507,681.0 m2), of which a little over twenty percent is not part of the skyscraper itself, but of the podium connected to it.


3. Taipei 101, Taipei, Taiwan -- 4,440,100 sq ft -- somewhat of a surprise. This tower gets very little publicity but it is a big boy!


4. Ping An Finance Center, Shenzhen, China -- 4,153,990 sq ft


5. Shanghai World Finance Center, Shanghai, China -- 4,107,500 sq ft


6. Shanghai Tower, Shanghai, China -- 4.09029 million ft -- a bit of a surprise. I thought it would be larger.


7. Burg Khalifa, Dubai UAE -- 3.59515 million ft -- a definite surprise here


8. One World Trade Center, New York -- 3,501,274 sq ft


9. Makkah Royal Clock Tower, Saudi Arabia -- 3,343,680 ft -- thought it would be larger. That thing looks huge!


10. Lotte World Tower - Seoul, South Korea -- 3,273,100 sq ft -- surprised this is not larger. This is another building that looks huge!


11. International Commerce Center, Hong Kong -- 2,950,000 sq ft

^ Surprisingly humble, classical and non-related to the McDonald's enterprise.
Probably they built it like that to sell/lease it easier, once that day has come.
