  • Houston, the largest city in the U.S. state of Texas, is the site of 51 completed high-rises over 427 feet (130 m), 38 of which stand taller than 492 feet (150 m). The tallest building in the city is the JPMorgan Chase Tower, which rises 1,002 feet (305 m) in Downtown Houston and was completed in 1982. It also stands as the tallest building in Texas and the 21st-tallest building in the United States. The second-tallest skyscraper in the city is the Wells Fargo Plaza, which rises 992 feet (302 m) and was completed in 1983. The Williams Tower, completed in 1982 and rising 901 feet (275 m), is the third-tallest building in Houston. Seven of the ten tallest buildings in Texas are located in Houston. The history of skyscrapers in the city began with the construction of the original Binz Building in 1895. This building, rising 6 floors, is often regarded as the first skyscraper in Houston; it was demolished in 1951 to allow for the construction of a more modern building of the same name, which was in turn replaced by another, 14-floor-tall high-rise that also kept the original name. Houston's first building standing more than 492 feet (150 m) was the El Paso Energy Building, completed in 1962. After the Texas real estate collapse in late 1980s, the city saw no new major office buildings until 2002, when 1500 Louisiana Street was completed. There are currently four buildings under construction that are planned to rise at least 427 feet (130 m). Overall, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat ranks Houston's skyline (based on existing and under construction buildings over 492 feet (150 m) tall) 2nd in the Southern United States (after Miami) and 4th in the United States.
