List of tallest buildings by U.S. state

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of the tallest buildings by U.S. state. Forty are in their respective state's largest city and 18 are in their state's capital city. The tallest building in the U.S. by architectural height is currently One World Trade Center in New York, which is approximately 1,776 feet — more than the combined heights of the tallest buildings in Wyoming, Vermont, Maine, South Dakota, Montana, North Dakota, New Hampshire, and West Virginia. Many are attributed to banks: three to JPMorgan Chase and U.S. Bancorp, and two to Wells Fargo and Bank of America.

Method of determination

The building heights compared here are calculated from the ground level to the architectural top and include heights of all habitable structures irrespective of number of occupied floors.[79] Non-freestanding structures, observational towers, and communication towers are excluded (North Dakota boasts the largest guyed mast structure in the world), as are antennas extending from the structure top. However integral spires are included, facilitating One World Trade Center to be considered taller than Willis Tower, even though the highest occupied floor of Willis Tower is higher than that of One World Trade Center. [80] The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat is considered the arbiter for any dispute. For more information, see building heights.

Notes

A.^ City is here defined by the broader definition of urbanized area. See urban area for more information.
B.^ Year completed
C.^ Previously named the Bank One Center.
D.^ Franklin Towers in Portland, Maine, a residential building with 16 floors rising to 175 feet, has the highest occupied floor in Maine.
E.^ The Stratosphere Tower is the largest tower in Nevada and west of the Mississippi River in the United States. However, because the structure is an observation tower, it is excluded from this list. Please see the Methodology for further information.
F.^ Previously held by the Zip Feed Mill until its demolition in 2005. Qwest Tower is currently uncertified, and some dispute has been noted suggesting St. Joseph's Cathedral (also in Sioux Falls) may actually be taller.[81]
G. An unihabitable tower in Abbeville (the Prysmian Copper Wire Tower) is taller than the Capitol Center, and is the tallest structure in South Carolina. Since it is not classified as a building, however, it is not included in this list.
