How many stories does a building have to be to make it a skyscraper?

    There is no set rule for how many stories a skyscraper has to be in order to be labeled as a skyscraper rather than a building. However, the structural make-up of a skyscraper is different than a building’s because buildings with 4 stories or less can support their weight by their walls alone, whereas skyscrapers consist of skeletal frames made up of steel and concrete, in order to support the height and weight of their structures. In addition, skyscrapers usually contain elevators to transport people up and down the many floors. It is also noted that skyscrapers should be taller than they are wide.
