tallest building(s) in the area you live in?

What are the tallest building(s) in the area you live in? The tallest buildings in my area are the Moreton and Rufford buildings which are both 61m high(block of flats):



Tallest in my city: The Shard at 310m



P.S. if possible give the height(s) for them.
P.P.S. I don't know if this is the correct forum to put this thread in.

The tallest two buildings in my city.

LECCE | Italy | Santa Rosa Building | 52m | 12 fl

LECCE | Italy | 5 Via Pettorano | 38m | 9 fl

Unfortunately I live in a little city (around 90.000 inhabitants) so there aren't so much tall buildings in my area.

Who agrees with me that the burj khalifa should be the limit unless there's an elevator that travels really fast?

I think you are in the wrong place haha. Seriously though we like height around here (not without good design of course). I don't think elevator speed should be a limiting factor.
