    The current tallest completed skyscraper in the world is the BurjKhalifa, located in Dubai. It is way much taller than the second one with its 828 m high.
    The tallest skyscraper in Canada is the First Canadian Place in Toronto. It is 298 m high.
    120 years ago, the tallest skyscraper in the world did not even reach 100 m high.
  17. 17. China is the country with the most skyscrapers taller than 400 m worldwide(8, which represents 32% of all of them).
    There is a very strong correlation between the number of skyscrapers in the cities with at least 200 skyscrapers higher than 100 m and the combined heights of the buildings in each of these cities (0.9983).
    There is presently no skyscraper between 509 m and 828 m tall.
