Comerica Bank Center
The postmodern 60-story skyscraper rises 785 feet over the Central Business District in Downtown Dallas. It is the third tallest skyscraper in the city of Dallas, the sixth in the state of Texas, and the forty-ninth in the U.S. Comerica Bank Center provides approximately two million square feet office space and 1,500 parking spaces beneath the tower.
The design team analyzed numerous structural systems before selecting an innovative, blended framework which utilized a composite steel gravity frame with a reinforced concrete perimeter wall. In this innovative structural system the perimeter wall was punctured to efficiently create windows for the tower without sacrificing structural integrity or economy.
