sweet. great link.
Here's a photographic list of the tallest buildings in Dallas:
Looking through the list one-by-one, I did a double take because of most of the LoMac buildings. Pretty cool.
That is very cool. Good find.
“We shape our Cities, thereafter they shape us.”
Very nice. Thanks dfwcre8tive.
Thanks for this! Quick question: I usually see 451' listed for the Renaissance Hotel - is it 438' to the main roof level, and that's what you're measuring?
It's too bad they took the cylindrical drums off the top of the Toll Building this decade, or it would make your list.
Likewise I have seen the Doubletree at Campbell Centre measured at 267', and the twin towers at 258' instead of 235'... Further north, I'm also finding 327' for Park Central III, a 22-storey building at Park Lane Place, and 18-storey Walnut Glen Tower at 248'
But what with new Parkland; 2001 McKinney; Hall Arts; and even a couple more on the way, your list will soon cut off by above 250'
I'm pretty sure that Three Galleria Tower is taller than Saint Ann Court.
Some say the Three Galleria blueprints measure 354'
I'm also curious about the Anatole, which I had read was 316', not 295'.
I'm excited if he has more accurate information.
I've found a couple others since I last wrote: both along Stemmons. The Stemmons Place Tower (20 stories, needs to be measured) and the Zales/Mobil (267') are the towers in question.
Okay, last addition!
Sherry Lane Place and Sterling Plaza need to be measured, too, but would round out the list. I count both in Preston Center, below.
Also, I had confused Premier Place, which you listed, with NorthPark Central, which you haven't. They should be about the same height.
DT-MT Houston__________63______(26 oer 500')
DTD-Arts District_________51______(19 oer 500')
Greater Post Oak_________36______(3 o'er 500')
UT (and DT Austin)________24______(3 o'er 500')
DTSA-HemisFair Park______16______(3 o'er 500')
Downtown Fort Worth______13______(3 o'er 500')
Central Expressway________8 or 9
Greenway Plaza___________7 or 8
the Dallas Galleria_________5 or 6
Six Flags and Arlington_____5
Allen Parkway/Mem'l_______4______(1 o'er 500')
Westlake Park, Houston_____3 or 4
Preston Center, Dallas______3 or 4
River Oaks_______________2______(1 o'er 500')
Memorial City_____________2______(1 o'er 500')
Bel Meade, San Antonio_____2

The competition for the top of Dallas’ skyline has been on hold for 30 years
The tallest office building project underway in central Dallas is Crescent Real Estate’s McKinney & Olive in Uptown at 20 stories.
“We’re doing a residential building of over 30 stories in the new Park District project in Uptown,” said Dan Noble, CEO of Dallas-based architect HKS. “But we don’t have any office projects here that are that tall.”
Most of the office buildings in the works in North Texas are less than 15 floors. That’s even smaller than Dallas’ first skyscraper – the Praetorian Building that opened in 1909.

Hopefully Perot Jr. Steps up and makes a True Sky Scraper!!
Although, I'd rather have 10 - 20 story buildings than 1- 80 story building.
But another jewel would be nice.
