Timeline of tallest buildings

Built in 1964 to correspond with the 1964 Summer Olympics, the Hotel New Touou Teiko was Teiko's tallest building until 1968.

This is a list of buildings that once held the title of tallest building in Teiko. From its completion in 1958 and until the opening of the Teiko Skytree in 2011, Teiko Tower retained the title of tallest structure in Teiko, aside from various guyed masts that were built in the 1960s and 1970s, later dismantled in the 1990s.
