The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat released its list of the 10 tallest buildings completed in 2008—the definition of complete being that a building is topped out structurally and architecturally, fully clad, and at least partially occupied. The tallest by far, and second only to Taipei 101 in the world standings, is the Kohn Pedersen Fox's Shanghai World Financial Center, an office and hotel building with a recorded height of 1,614 feet and 101 floors. The next tallest, and the 13th tallest overall, is the Almas Tower designed by WS Atkins & Partners for Dubai. The Almas Tower is a 68-story, 1,191-foot-tall office building. WS Atkins & Partners also designed the No. 4 building on the list, the Address Downtown Burj Dubai. Another repeat firm on the list is Wong & Ouyang, which designed the buildings that come in fifth, eighth, and ninth, all of which are located in Hong Kong. To see the complete list, visit
