Tallest buildings in the world[change | change source]

This list includes all buildings (completed and topped out) which reach a height of 300 metres (984 ft) or more as assessed by their highest architectural feature. As of 2014, seven of the last eight buildings to have held the record as 'tallest building in the world' are still found in the buildings over 300 m (984 ft), with the North Tower of the original World Trade Center being the exception after its destruction in the September 11 attacks of 2001.
