Best Answer

That depends on the building, and on which dimension of it you're measuring.

If you're measuring the height of the building, then 'meters' probably does it for every
case. The tallest building I know off the top of my head is the Amoco/Aon building in
Chicago ... the 3rd tallest in the city ... which is 346 meters above the street level,
so a building would have to be almost 3 times as tall as that one before 'kilometers'
might become a better choice.

If you're measuring the length or width of the building, 'meters' is usually the better
choice. But if you're doing one like the Pentagon, or the US Military Records Center
in St. Louis, then 'kilometers' might produce the more convenient number.
