  • The tallest building in every state ranges from an 11-story apartment building in Vermont to a 1,776-foot tower in New York.
  • As a whole, the US has more tall buildings than any other country in the world.
  • Those buildings are unevenly distributed through the country, with many concentrated in major cities.

The United States has more tall buildings than any other country in the world – more than 2,600 of them taller than 100 meters, to be exact.

But within the US, not all skyscrapers are distributed evenly. Fourteen of the 20 tallest buildings in America are located in New York City, while several states don’t even have a single building in the top 500.

Below, we’ve compiled the tallest building in each state and the District of Columbia, from the 11-story Decker Towers apartment building in Vermont to the 1,776-foot One World Trade Center in New York. States are listed from shortest to tallest building, using statistics from real estate company HighRises.com and the Skyscraper Center database.
