    Looking through the list one-by-one, I did a double take because of most of the LoMac buildings. Pretty cool.

    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.

    The competition for the top of Dallas’ skyline has been on hold for 30 years

    http://bizbeatblog.dallasnews.com/20...30-years.html/

    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.

    Although I wouldn't mind seeing a tall one go up again we are getting a bunch of density out of the 10-20's, although there are a few over 30 set to go up soon. I would say this, now that downtown has cleared out the stock of available high rises to re-purpose, if there were any area of town we could expect to see taller towers it's there.

    Back in 2008 there were plans to replace 1900 Pacific with a 57-story condo tower. If it was feasible before the recession, I don't see why a combination condo/hotel tower in the 75-story range would be that hard to imagine today.

    I'd say it's possible now more than ever.. it seems like there is more of a demand for DTD Resi units now than in 2008.

    Turkish developer , Mike Sarimsakci, had/has a similar idea with the twin 80 story towers or whatever it was..off Cadiz st...it was supposed to be Part luxury Resi/Hotel units..

    All it takes is capital...I think we have the demand for it.

    It's definitely possible it just has to be well thought of and multi-use is a must. A complete office or even residential of say 70 floors can seem daunting and can have a negetaive impact on the market. Something like this doesn't: 2 floors (hotel lobby/restaurant) + 8 floors (parking) + 16 floors (office) + 20 floors (hotel) + 32 floors (residential) = 78 floors not to mention a crown design. I wonder if the FAA will allow a crown on BOA nowadays.
