When is a building a skyscraper?

There is no exact definition of what a skyscraper is in terms of building law (but is exists a definition of what tall buildings are in Germany). In recent years, however, the definition has established itself internationally that a high-rise building with a height of at least 100 meters (328 feet) 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.

You can find all skyscrapers of the world in the international skyscraper database SKYDB.
