1700 Pacific is a skyscraper located at 1700 Pacific Avenue in the City Center District of Dallas, Texas. The building rises 655 feet (132 meters) and contains 50 floors of office space. It is the seventh tallest building in the city, at 655 feet (200 m) and has fifty floors. It was the second tallest in the city when is was completed in 1983, trailing only Renaissance Tower.

The land on which 1700 Pacific sits was once two triangular blocks separated by Live Oak Street. In 1977 one of the triangular blocks was purchased by Dallas Transit Board for a major transit interchange on a proposed underground transit system[1] The building site was formerly occupied by the 13-story National City Bank Building, several low-rise structures and a one block stretch of Live Oak Street.[citation needed]

The architect for the Tower was WZMH Architects. Berkeley First City L.P. owns the building while Jones Lang LaSalle leases the building.[2]

In 2008 Jones Lang LaSalle announced that a 25,000 square feet (2,300 m2) fitness center named "Elevation" would move into 1700 Pacific.[2]
