128 tall buildings were constructed in 2016, a world record

Quote:
We’ve just been looking at the amazing growth of the skyscraper in its early years, and now ArchDaily informs us that 2016 was a record year for tall buildings throughout the world. The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) announced in its 2016 Tall Building Year in Review that 128 buildings 200 meters/656 feet or higher were completed in 2016, beating the previous year’s record of 114 completions. Of those buildings, 18 nabbed the spot of tallest building in their respective city, country or region; 10 were classified as supertalls (300 meters/984 feet or higher). And it looks like we’re on a roll…

The biggest share of the new skyscrapers–107, or 84 percent—were completed in Asia, keeping the title of “global skyscraper epicenter” in that region. At the very top of the list, the Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre (pictured above) was completed in China. The Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed 530-meter mixed-use skyscraper is now the fifth-tallest building in the world.

The United States came in second with seven new completions in 2016, accounting for all 200-meter-plus development in North America. Those towers were 30 Park Place, 10 Hudson Yards, 56 Leonard Street, 252 East 57th Street and the Beekman Hotel and Residences in New York City, Harborside Tower 1 in Jersey City and Boston’s Millennium Tower. It’s worth noting that, with the exception of 10 Hudson Yards, all of the U.S. completions were residential towers.

Tall Building Year in Review, Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, CTBUH, supertalls, skyscrapers, 432 park avenue, warsaw spire, Ningbo, Bank of China, Guangzhou CTF, 432 Park Avenue

Next in line were South Korea (six buildings), Indonesia (five) and the Philippines and Qatar (four each). The U.S. had two buildings in the top 20 tallest buildings built last year: 30 Park Place and 10 Hudson Yards.

Tall Building Year in Review, Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, CTBUH, supertalls, skyscrapers, 432 park avenue, warsaw spire, Ningbo, Bank of China, Guangzhou CTF, 432 Park Avenue

2016 was a record-breaking year, but according to projections, 2017 and 2018 will continue to surpass previous years in the race skyward.
