Top 10 Tallest Residential Buildings in India

India’s tallest residential building era began when the LIC Building in Chennai was finished in 1959. It had 12 floors at first and was the country’s first skyscraper. It stayed tall until 1961, when the 25-story Usha Kiran Building surpassed it. In 2024, the India Residential Construction Market is worth about $189.80 billion. Mumbai has the most skyscrapers and tall buildings in India, with over 200 skyscrapers and 5,600 tall buildings in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region.

These are the top 10 residential buildings in India. Apart from these tallest buildings, India has many other very tall buildings. Skyscrapers are typically at least 100 meters (330 ft) or 150 meters (490 ft) tall. Modern skyscrapers do not support their weight alone; instead, they rely on steel frames and curtain walls, allowing plenty of windows. This makes skyscrapers have big walls of glass. But sometimes, new projects come along and become even taller. Those new projects are still being built. Next time you’re walking around big cities, make sure to see these buildings.
