Shimao International Plaza in Shanghai, at 333 meters (1,093 ft) high, leads the list of the ten tallest buildings completed in 2005, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat reported today. The Q1 Tower (Gold Coast, Australia) at 321 meters (1,058 ft), and Chongqing (China) World Trade Center, at 283 meters (929 ft), were second and third, respectively.

To be eligible for consideration, buildings must have been completed in 2005, be fully clad and either be 'open for business' or at least partially occupied. Height is measured from sidewalk level of the main entrance to the structural top of the building including spire, but not including communications antennae or flag pole.
