Bank of America Plaza

901 Main - 1985

Jarvis, Putty, Jarvis of Dallas designed this signature building of Dallas.  It is the city's tallest skyscraper at 921 feet and 72 stories.  It is also the 3rd tallest building in the State of Texas.  The plan features several notched corners which allow multiple corner offices per floor.  Each of these notches stop at different heights at the top of the building, giving the obviously modern design an "Art Deco" styling.  Although the building is predominantly glass, the floors are expressed on the exterior with aluminum spandrel panels.  This skyscraper was constructed on land that was originally part of the Main Place development.  The Main Place development only had one building constructed, with the remainder of the property sold for this development.  A twin tower to the Bank of America Plaza and other buildings were proposed, but plans were scrapped when the economy downturned in the late 1980's.  At night, the building is outlined with green argon tubing, making it a very prominent part of the skyline at night.  Bank of America is the tenant for which the building is named.  KDFW-TV (Fox 4) has a camera located on top of the skyscraper to show views of the city during their newscasts.
