About the project

Sheets of glass descend like a waterfall from towering vaults while setbacks carve a cross shape from the building’s top. This 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 of office space and 1,500 parking spaces beneath the tower.

The building’s first five floors are occupied by a massive banking and stock exchange hall, featuring a vaulted ceiling and skylight. The tower’s underground retail spaces connect to a 36-block network of shops, restaurants, and offices below the city known as the Dallas Pedestrian Network.

The design team analyzed numerous structural systems before selecting an innovative, blended framework that 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.
