This list of the tallest buildings and structures in borough of Salford, Greater Manchester ranks buildings in the city by height.

Salford currently has one tower completed at a height of 100 metres or more and a further four towers above 100 metres under construction. Salford is part of the Central Manchester region which has 19 towers either built or under construction over 100 metres, by far the highest number of towers in any metropolitan area in the United Kingdom outside Greater London.

At 73 metres Salford Cathedral was the tallest building in Salford for 118 years following its construction in 1848. However it wasn't until the 1960s and 1970s that the first tall building boom in Salford occurred. During this period a number of mid rise brutalist residential buildings were constructed, predominantly in the Pendleton area of the city as a means to house significant populations affected by industrial decline. In 1966 the 80 metre City Central tower finally overtook Salford Cathedral as the tallest building in the city.

Through the 1980s and 1990s few significant proposals came to fruition. However, there has been a renewed interest in skyscrapers in Salford in the past two decades with a number of proposals being brought forward. Significant proposals included the 179 metre Greengate Tower and the 160 metre Canopus Tower A, both in the Greengate area of the city in Central Manchester, which would have been the tallest towers in Salford and the city's first official skyscrapers if built. However due to economic factors in 2008 these towers along with a number of other significant proposals were never built.

Unlike most major cities in the United Kingdom, there are no height restrictions and local planning officers generally adopt a laissez-faire attitude towards city centre high rises in Salford. Media City in the Salford Quays area of the city has been at the forefront of development in the last ten years with a number of mid rise towers being completed. These include the 90 metre Blue, MediaCityUK which became the tallest building in the city in 2010, the X1 Media City collection of four 86 metre towers and the 82 metre TheHeart, MediaCity UK.

Into the 2020s, Salford Quays will continue to be an important growth district for Salford with two further tower cluster emerging in Cotton Quay and in the second phase of the X1 development in Media city. The Cotton Quay development will see a collection of six towers over 50 metres constructed including the 158 metre Tower One which will become the second tallest building in Salford when completed. The second phase of the X1 development will see five towers constructed, including three over 100 metres. The tallest tower in this development will be Tower 1 which at 125 metres is due to become the sixth tallest building in Salford when completed. If all future plans come to fruition then Salford Quays will contain one skyscraper over 150 metres and five further high rises over 100 metres.

The Greengate area of Salford is the second major development area for the city of Salford. Its advantageous location in the heart of Central Manchester and relative underdevelopment over the preceding decades means that a number of significant new proposals have come forward. In 2018 the 130 metre Anaconda Cut became the tallest building in the city and the first building in Salford to reach a height of over 100 metres.

If all future plans come to fruition then Greengate will feature two skyscrapers over 150 metres and six further high rises over 100 metres. The biggest development proposal is the One Heritage Tower which when completed in 2024, at 173 metres will become the tallest building in Salford, third tallest in Greater Manchester and fourth tallest in the United Kingdom outside London after the 213 metre Trinity Tower X and the 201 metre Deansgate Square South Tower, both in the adjacent Castlefield area of Manchester and the 193 metre 100 Broad Street Tower in Birmingham.

One Heritage lies in close proximity to Anaconda Cut and will be joined by the three Greengate Park North towers, the tallest of which will reach 155 metres. With the proposed 112 metre Gorton Street Tower and the under construction 112 metre Affinity Living Riverview and the 110 metre Irwell Towers, Greengate will soon have a coherent cluster of towers over 100 metres alongside numerous smaller towers, further expanding Central Manchester out westwards.

If all future proposals come to fruition, Salford could contain 90 buildings over 50 metres tall as well as 13 high rises above 100 metres and 3 skyscrapers over 150 metres. When considered with Manchester with which it shares a central city region, the area will contain 43 high rises over 100 metres, by far the highest in the United Kingdom outside London. If considered separately from Manchester, then at (13) Salford will contain the fourth highest number of high rises of any city in the United Kingdom after Greater London (over 250), Manchester (30) and Birmingham (19).
