Zimbabwe has 13 buildings that stand taller than 70 metres (230 ft). The tallest building in Zimbabwe would not have been the RBZ (28 storey, 120m tall), not even any building in Harare. If it had been built, the tallest building in Zimbabwe would have been the ABC Building (33 storey, 141m tall) in Zvishavane, designed in 1976 by John Graham Architects.

Harare, Zimbabwe's capital city, is where most of the country's tallest buildings are concentrated. The tallest building in Zimbabwe is the 28 storey, New Reserve Bank building in Harare that is 120 m (394 ft) tall.

As of April 2012, the country has 4 skyscrapers over 100 m (328 ft) and 30 high-rise buildings that exceed 35 m (115 ft) in height.[1]

There are currently no major high-rise developments under construction or proposed in the country.
