Phoenix, the capital of the U.S. state of Arizona, has 19 skyscrapers standing at least 300 feet (91 m).[1] The tallest building in Phoenix is the 40-story Chase Tower, completed in 1972 with 38 habitable floors rising to 483 feet (147 m).[2] It is also the tallest building in Arizona. The second-tallest building in the city and the state is the U.S. Bank Center, which rises 407 feet (124 m).[3] Of the 25 tallest buildings in Arizona, 21 are located in Phoenix.[4] However, none of them are among the tallest in the United States.

The history of tall buildings in Phoenix began with the completion in 1924 of the Luhrs Building; the structure rose 138 feet (42 m) and ten floors. The Westward Ho was completed in 1927.[5] This 16-floor, 208-foot (63 m) structure stood as the tallest in Phoenix until 1960.[5] The city went through a building boom in the early 1960s, during which Phoenix saw the completion of three of its 25 tallest buildings, including the Phoenix Corporate Center and 4000 North Central Avenue. The city then went through another major building boom from 1980 to the early 1990s. In this time period, 13 of the city's 25 tallest buildings were constructed, including Century Link Tower, Viad Tower and Phoenix City Hall.

The most recently completed high-rise in Phoenix is The Hotel Palomar, which rises 295 feet (90 m) and 24 floors. As of January 2019, there are three high-rises under construction, two approved for construction, and two proposed for construction in the city.[6]
