The 25 Tallest Skyscrapers Currently Under Construction

With the recent groundbreaking of work on the Evergrande International Finance Center in Jinan, China, Benzinga took a look at the tallest skyscrapers currently under construction around the world.

As it turns out, China takes the cake as far as the constrution of Supertall (< 1000ft) skyscrapers goes, making up 19 of the 25 entrants on the list. And although none of these will surpass the 2722-feet tall Burj Khalifa (formerly known as the Burj Dubai), this group of 25 bemehoths are more than impressive in their own right.

The methodology for inclusion on the list was simple. The height is based on architectural height and includes spires; construction must have already begun on the structure; and there must be at least some information in the last six months about the progress of the skyscraper.

Check out Benzinga's list below!
