To acquire an accurate measurement, The B1M followed the lead of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitats method, just considering the overall gross floor location of a towers footprint and excluding adjoining podiums, linked buildings, and other towers within the overall structures development.
The largest building, as determined by this channel, is granted to Chinas Ping An International Finance Center. Its only 1,965 feet high, it has over 5.3 million square feet of area, excluding its 968,000 square-foot basement. The video includes other structures like the Empire State Building, 30 Hudson Yards, Marina Bay Sands, the Renaissance Center, and the Petronas Towers.
Skyscrapers are the most iconic part of any citys horizon. New ones grow up all the time, always contending for the “worlds tallest.” This video shows that height isnt the only stat that matters: Total location does, too.
The video goes on to look at some of the highest structures across the globe and compare them using their total area instead. Dubais Burj Khalifa is the tallest structure on Earth (2,722 feet high) but in terms of area, it doesnt come anywhere close to the largest structures (simply 3.3 million square feet).
