Torre Agbar is such a cool building.
But her height is only 144.44 m (473.88 ft) if I am right
It is under 500ft.........too low.....sorry

one more thing,
are there some coordinate buildings in Barcelona, Hotel Arts Barcelona(154m) and Torre Mapfre(154m)?

@skyscrapercity: In most Asian countries we need many more editors at Emporis. At the moment there is not a single active editor for South Korea. There was one editor who added more than 2,000 highrises in South Korea, but he is not active anymore. So we really need some local people from South Korea. If you are interested, please apply here:
https://community.emporis.com/pu/jo/ap/?lng=3&editor
You could really help putting Busan and other South Korean cities on the "skyscraper map" and if you take good photos, you can even earn some money (at the moment $120 for every sold photo).

@philadweller: Yes, the Citibank is 2.06 km from the next skyscraper. So it´s quite lonely (the 112th loneliest in the world), as most skyscrapers are part of a greater cluster. There is one even lonelier building in New York though: One Hanson Place in Brooklyn. It´s 3.2 kilometres (so about two miles) from the next building over 500ft.

@Pavlemadrid: Hotel Bali is the only building over 500ft in Benidorm, if you do not count the spire of Torre Lugano. So it´s "lonely" as far as skyscrapers are concerned.

When I was little, I thought of Tokyo Tower as an Eiffel Tower wannabe, even at the time of its completion and the first decade of its life.

Menara Telekom was ranked the 89th loneliest, with the next skyscraper at 3.06km away.


Menara Komtar in Penang was ranked the 18th loneliest. The next skyscraper was some 292km away? Really? I kinda doubt this.

Tour Montparnasse in Paris looks like the loneliest tower in the world.

Rio Sul Center isn't anywhere near these pictures.
But even so, I don't think it's that lonely either.

My vote goes to Tour Montparnasse, I don't think anyone can find any pics to disprove this.

Like this one. (zoomed I admit)


There is 7.35 km between Tour Montparnasse and the closest 150m+ skyscraper.
Tour Montparnasse is the 54th loneliest skyscraper in the world.

Anyway data in this site are wrong, the cloest skyscraper is not Tour Gan but tour Axa (154m, soon 225m without spire)

@Minato ku: Oh, I just found out how that mistake happened. I only listed buildings that are completed at the moment. So Tour AXA slipped through my net, as I did not think about buildings that once were completed and then became under construction again.

@LBlumenau: Although Rio has about 50 buildings over 100 metres, only Rio Sul Center is over 500ft. The next skyscraper over 500ft is in Săo Paulo.

@logorithm: Menara Komtar is the only building over 500ft in Penang Island. The next one is in Kuala Lumpur.

Interesting thread but imo Tour Montparnasse in Paris grabs the cake!
