Las Vegas Strip, Las Vegas, Nevada (18009987788)
Many of the state's tallest buildings are located on and near the Las Vegas Strip.

This list of tallest buildings in Nevada ranks buildings in the state of Nevada by tallest height. This list, which includes buildings with a minimum height of 250 feet (76 m), features the 57 tallest buildings in the state, starting at 260 feet. The tallest structure in the state is the Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas, with a height of 1,149 feet (350 m). The tower, located north of the Las Vegas Strip, is also the tallest observation tower in the United States. Because the Stratosphere Tower is not fully habitable, it is not considered a building.

The tallest building in the state is the unfinished Fontainebleau Resort Las Vegas, with a height of 735 feet (224 m); the building was topped out in November 2008, but was put on hold the following year. Nevada's tallest completed building is the 52-story Palazzo, which stands at 642 feet (196 m) and was completed in 2007. Outside of Las Vegas, the tallest building is the 38-floor Silver Legacy Resort & Casino, located in Reno and completed in 1995, with a height of 410 feet (120 m).

List of tallest buildings

An equal sign (=) following a rank indicates a shared height between two or more buildings. The "Year" column indicates the year in which a building was completed. Freestanding observation towers, while not habitable buildings, are included for comparison purposes but not ranked.
