*This list was compiled based on a web site: http://www.skyscrapers.com/re/en/wm/ci/102386/bu/. (This web site was accessed 10/13/2004--it no longer exists.) This list rates the building by number of floorsoverground (floors above the ground.) It is difficult finding number of floors of the high rises of Tucson.  Even telephone calls to the buildings do not work because buildings are not always identified correctly.   Newspaper articles are inaccurate:  Ex: article "High-Rise" from Arizona Daily Star, Oct. 23, 2001. Page D5 lists the Bank of America Plaza has only having 9 floors.  The Bank of America Plaza has 16 floors.

 ** Bank One Building is 10 floors above the ground.  (11 floors with basement.)  This building was originally known as the Consolidated Bank of Tucson. The building was bought by Valley National Bank in 1935. It is included on this list because it is the first skyscraper in Tucson.
