When is a building a skyscraper?

There is no exact definition of what a skyscraper is in terms of building law. In recent years, however, the definition has established itself internationally that a high-rise building with a height of at least 100 meters corresponds to a skyscraper. In the last five years there has been a tendency to view 150 meters as the limit because high-rise buildings are fundamentally getting higher and higher.

But there is also an increase for skyscrapers: The term “supertall” refers to skyscrapers that are at least 300 meters (984 feet) high.

Here in the SKYLINE ATLAS all buildings are referred to as high-rise buildings that have at least 10 storeys. We adhere to the definitions for the acquisition of real estate data from Phorio Standards.
