This list of tallest buildings in Chicago ranks skyscrapers by height in the U.S.marker city of Chicagomarker, Illinoismarker, which is considered to be the birthplace of the skyscraper. The tallest building in Chicago is the 108-story Willis Tower marker, which rises in the Chicago Loopmarker and was completed in 1974. It also stands as the tallest building in the United States, and the fifth-tallest building in the world. In addition, the Willis Tower has the most floors of any completed building in the world, and stands as the world's tallest completed skyscraper when measuring to pinnacle height, rising with the addition of its western antenna. The second-, third- and fourth-tallest buildings in Chicago are the Trump International Hotel & Towermarker, the Aon Centermarker and the John Hancock Centermarker, respectively. , the John Hancock Center, with 49 floors of condominiums, holds the world record for the highest residence. In addition, Chicago has the distinction of being the only city in the world with more than one completed building containing at least 100 floors.

The history of skyscrapers in Chicago began with the 1885 completion of the Home Insurance Building, which is often regarded as the first steel-framed skyscraper in the world. The building was originally constructed with a height of and 10 stories, and was later expanded to a height of and 12 stories before being demolished in 1931. Historically, Chicago has played a prominent role in the development of the skyscraper. The Masonic Temple Buildingmarker was the tallest building in the world using the unconventional definition that excludes the New York World Building's ornamental lantern. Three past buildings have been considered the tallest building in the United States, including the Chicago Board of Trade Buildingmarker, which in both of its incarnations held the title of Chicago's tallest building. Chicago went through a very early high-rise construction boom that lasted from the early 1920s to the mid-1930s, during which time 11 of the city's 91 tallest buildings were constructed. The city then went through an even larger building boom that has lasted from the early 1960s until the present. During this time, the city has seen the completion of 79 buildings rising at least in height, including the Sears Tower, the Aon Center and the John Hancock Tower. The high-rises that have been constructed are mostly concentrated in the Loopmarker and along the Magnificent Mile in Chicago's Near North Sidemarker community area. Chicago is the site of 91 completed buildings that stand at least in height, with 16 more under construction. Overall, the skyline of Chicago is ranked (based on existing and under-construction buildings over tall) first in the Midwestern United States and second in the United States, after New York City. , there are 1,105 completed high-rises in the city, second in the country behind New York. Based on the average height of the ten tallest completed buildings, Chicago has the tallest skyline in the world.

Chicago has two buildings under construction that are planned to exceed in height: the Chicago Spiremarker, and the Waterview Towermarker. The 150-story Chicago Spire, upon its completion in 2012, would become the tallest building in the United States and the second tallest building in the world. The tower would also stand as the second tallest all-residential building in the world,surpassing Q1marker in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. There are also several buildings proposed for construction in the city, the largest being the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and Residence Tower, which would rise and 107 floors upon its completion in 2012. , there are 160 high-rise buildings under construction, approved for construction, and proposed for construction in Chicago.
