A recent report highlights the tallest buildings constructed in 2014 and what is to come in 2015.
The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) released its annual report, the 2014 Tall Building Data Research Report, which concluded that 97 buildings of 200 meters (656 feet) or higher were completed last year, beating every previous year on record, including the all-time high of 81 completions 2011. Additionally, eleven “supertalls” (buildings of 300 meters—984 feet—or taller) were completed, making this year even more significant for tall buildings, as it was also the highest recorded annual total.
CTBUH also tracked the sum of the heights of the world’s buildings of 200 meters or higher completed in 2014. If stacked on top of each other, those skyscrapers would measure 23,333 meters (76,552 feet) high. Again, this statistic beat another all-time record, breaking 2011’s previous record of 19,852 meters (65,131 feet).
