China has been the built the most skyscrapers every year for over a decade now, and last year was no exception with 77 having been built in 36 different cities. 12 were built in Shenzhen alone last year.
The business model is the same for all most all of them being mixed-use residential, luxury hotel, retail, and office. It’s going to be an interesting space to watch as to how successful that will be.
A skyscraper is defined as anything above 200m, and a supertall skyscraper anything above 300m. For this list, I am going to focus on the super-super tall being the 400 meter and above. All of these are either completed, in construction, or have/near to breaking ground. There are so many more that are in proposal stage with 800m and 1000m on the cards!
