This list of tallest buildings in Texas ranks skyscrapers in the U.S. state of Texas by height. The tallest structure in the state, excluding radio towers, is the JPMorgan Chase Tower, which rises 1,002 feet (305 m) and was completed in 1982. The second-tallest building in Texas is the Wells Fargo Plaza, which contains 72 floors and is 992 ft (302 m) tall. The third-tallest building in the state is the Bank of America in Dallas, which rises 921 feet (281 m) above the ground. As of May 2011, there are 1,216 completed high-rises in the state.[1]

Texas's history of skyscrapers began with the completion in 1909 of the 14-story Praetorian Building in Dallas, which is considered to be the state's first high-rise.[2][3] The building rose 190 feet (58 m) above ground.

Buildings in Texas taller than 600 ft (183 m)[edit]

This list ranks Texas skyscrapers that stand at least 600 feet (183 m) tall, based on standard height measurement. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts or other objects not part of the original plans (with the exception of the broadcast array that was added to the top of Renaissance Tower twelve years after its initial completion). Existing structures are included for ranking purposes based on present height.
