From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This list of the tallest buildings in South America ranks skyscrapers in order by height. South America has historically seen a relatively modest demand for skyscrapers. Most of the continent's high-rises are in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Uruguay, and Venezuela, and the tallest buildings are located in São Paulo, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Caracas, Montevideo and Bogota, all of which are the biggest financial centers of these countries.

The majority of the continent's tallest buildings are residential. Office buildings have not historically been built taller than residential buildings in the region, though this scenario may well change in the next decades, as South America has been experiencing substantial economic growth.

Ranking criteria and buildings

The first skyscrapers of at least 100 metres (330 ft) height in South America were built in the 18920s, and included the Palacio Barolo in Buenos Aires, the Palacio Salvo in Montevideo, the Martinelli Building in São Paulo.

Alternative lists of high buildings are maintained by the nongovernmental US organization Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. These lists, first defined and compiled in 1996, rank buildings in four categories: height of structural or architectural top; height of highest occupied floor; height to the top of roof; height to top of any part of the building. Currently Parque Central Torre tops all categories except highest point, where the Torre Colpatria is highest, and height of highest occupied floor, which goes to the El Faro towers.

In the 1990s, local and foreign investment lead in a massive regeneration effort, recycling and refurbishing the west side warehouses into elegant houses, offices, lofts, private universities, luxurious hotels and restaurants that conform to a gallery of options for this new district in a city that grew up turning its back to the river. State-of-the-art multiplex cinemas, theatres, cultural centres, luxurious hotels and office and corporate buildings are located mostly in the east side. Puerto Madero breathes international flair, one of the new trendy barrios of Buenos Aires, it has become habitat of young professionals and there is an increasing interest as a destination for foreign buyers, particularly those with high income who are looking for premium properties.
