World's Largest Buildings by volume

Number 1:

Boeing Everett Factory in Washington, USA

Largest builiding in the world by volume at 13.3 million m3 (472 million cu ft) and covers 398,000 m2.

The factory includes a theater, The Boeing Store, a BECU branch, 4 Tully's Coffee stands (1 of which is in the delivery center), and several cafs. Across the airport to the northwest is the Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour, which runs factory tours.





Number 2:

Tropical Islands Resort in Branderburg, Germany

It resides inside a disused hangar 360 meters long, 210 meters wide and 107 meters high. At 5.5 million m3 (194 million ft3), it stands as one of the largest buildings on Earth by volume, and is the world's largest single hall without supporting pillars inside. The hangar cost 78 million and was originally commissioned by Cargolifter AG as an airship hangar named Aerium, but the airship it was intended to house the CL160 was never built.

The Malaysian Tanjong company bought the hangar and the surrounding real estate for 17.5 million and turned it into a resort with a man-made tropical habitat.





Number 3:

NASA Vehicle Assembly Building in Florida, USA

The VAB is 525 feet (160.02 m) tall, 716 feet (218.24 m) long and 518 feet (157.89 m) wide. It covers 8 acres (32,374.85 m2), and encloses 129,428,000 cubic feet (3,664,992.82 cubic metres) of space

This thread should have been directly linked to wiki! I would take those stats with a HUGE grain of salt.

I believe it's one of the industrial buildings at the container port - perhaps Modern Terminals?

That's a landmark though the one in Teotihuacan, Mexico has a larger base
