Lincoln Plaza is a 45-story high-rise in Downtown Dallas, Texas. In September 2013, the building was renamed Ross Tower. The building rises to a height of 579 feet (176 m) and was completed in 1982. Currently, it is the 14th-tallest building in the city.[1]

Ensco International has its corporate headquarters in Suite 4300 in the building.[3] In 2009 Ensco announced that it will move its headquarters to London and become a British-registered company. The company said that it does not plan to move "a large number" of employees to London. The COO of the company will remain in Dallas.[4]
