Torre Mayor in Mexico City is supposed to be the tallest building in cities over 2000 ft above sea level. The building itself is 740 ft and is the tallest in Latin America.

La Paz has a higher altitude than Quito. Lets say these are some of the highest scrapers.
Quito sits at 9300 ft above sea level while Lhasa sits at about 12,000 ft above sea level. The 3000 ft difference is well over a 100-storey skyscraper (ie. Taipei 101).

Wait a sec. are we talking about La Paz or Lhasa? Yes true that Lhasa is higher than Quito.

La Paz's altitude is comparable to Lhasa, and both are much higher above sea level than Quito.

^I wouldn't consider anything in Tibet a "skyscraper," so I think Banco Central in La Paz wins. But if you consider Potala Palace or other palaces/religious structures to be skyscrapers, then maybe Tibet wins.
