The Thompson Building is a historic high-rise building in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The building rises 215 feet (66 m) in downtown Tulsa.[2] It contains 15 floors,[1] and was completed in 1923.[2] The First National Bank Building currently stands as the 17th-tallest building in the city, and the 36th-tallest building in the state of Oklahoma. The architect who designed the building was Arthur M. Atkinson.

The Thompson Building was originally constructed as a 10-story low-rise commercial building in 1923.[2] Five additional floors were built in 1929, six years after the completion of the original structure, bringing the high-rise to its present height.[2] The building was constructed in the Beaux Arts architectural style,[1] and is the 2nd-tallest Beaux Arts high-rise in Tulsa, after the Mayo Hotel.
