These will be the 10 Tallest Skyscrapers Of The Future …I Can’t Wait!

,

 

We are now in the age of the megatall skyscrapers.

The first megatall structure was the Burj Khalifa, which opened ten years ago. To be megatall, a building has to be over 2,000 feet tall. The Burj Khalifa is 2,722 feet tall, but in 2018, a building will rise that is more than 550 feet taller than the Burj Khalifa.

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) says that buildings will just keep getting taller. By the end of the decade, there may even be a building that’s over a kilometer tall. Here’s a list of the tallest buildings that are currently under construction.

These buildings will be finished by 2020 and four of them are over 2,000 feet tall. The skylines will look different in the future.
