Not sure about existing buildings, but the proposed Waterview Tower in Chicago has balconies at almost 300m.

Maybe some HK ones:



The one in the left(the Harbourside) and the quintets on the back have probably balconies at extreme heights.

Yes the Sorrento 1 is the highest building with balconies, I've checked it. FOllowed by teh Harbourside and Highcliff. All in HK.
But this list will change when the Eureka and Q1 are finished, both in Australia.

I probably faint if I go out on a balcony that high up. Who actually would like a balcony that high must have nerves of steel.

I'm not afraid of heights. But at 256mtrs it can be very windy, I'm afraid that the wind would blow me of that height....
