Tallest buildings in the United States

The United States is home to some of the world's tallest skyscrapers; eleven American buildings have held the title of tallest building in the world, and every titleholder from 1890 to 1998 was in the United States.[1] The 10-story Home Insurance Building, built in Chicago in 1885, is regarded as the world's first skyscraper; the building was constructed using a novel steel-loadbearing frame. As of 2011, only 4 of the 25 tallest buildings in the world are in the United States; before 1990, the US had had all of the top ten tallest buildings.

From 1974 until 2013, Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) in Chicago was the tallest skyscraper in The United States and was the seventh-tallest freestanding structure in the world to the antenna and the 9th-tallest building in the world to the roof, with a height of 1,451 feet (442 meters). Prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City, the twin towers of the World Trade Center occupied the second and third positions on the list below. The North Tower stood at 1,368 feet (417 m), while the South was 1,362 feet (415 m) tall. They are the only buildings that would have qualified for the list but which are no longer standing. Chicago and New York have always been the centers of US skyscraper building.

The 1,776 foot (541 m) One World Trade Center (previously known as the Freedom Tower), built on the former World Trade Center site, became the tallest building in the United States in 2013. The Chicago Spire (previously known as the Fordham Spire) which was under construction in Chicago, Illinois has been cancelled; it would have been the tallest building in the United States, rising 2,000 ft into the sky. In July 2011, real estate developer Bill Davies announced a proposal for a massive Old Chicago Main Post Office Redevelopment plan for Downtown Chicago that would include a 120 story twin tower that would also rise 2,000 feet (610 m). Other tall buildings that are either proposed or under construction include the Wilshire Grand Tower I in Los Angeles (1,250 feet (380 m), the Transbay Tower (1,070 feet (326 m)) in San Francisco, and One Bayfront Plaza (1,049 feet (320 m) in Miami, Florida.

Tallest buildings

This lists ranks completed and topped out buildings in the United States that stand at least 700 feet (213 m) tall, based on standard height measurement. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts. An equal sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings. The "Year" column indicates the year in which a building was completed. Freestanding observation towers,while not habitable buildings, are included for comparison purposes; however, they are not ranked.
