The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat recently released 100 of the World’s Tallest Buildings, a book detailing the Top Company Rankings for numerous disciplines as derived from the projects found within the book's pages.

As part of its company rankings, the top owners/developers were listed and ranked according to the number of buildings within the world’s 100 tallest they own.

There is not a single company that stands above the rest (no pun intended) as the top two companies on the list, Emaar Properties and Greenland Group, are tied for first place with a total of five buildings each.

Unsurprisingly, the top companies on the list are all located in the United Arab Emirates, China, or Hong Kong. In fact, only four of the 14 companies listed are not located in one of these three locations.

1 Emaar Properties 5
1 Greenland Group 5
