The list was compiled based on the website www.skyscrapers.com which no longer provides this information on that website.

It's difficult to compile an accurate list because buildings are not always identified correctly, the names change, and even newspaper articles have been found to be inaccurate. For example, the article "High-Rise" from Arizona Daily Star, Oct. 23, 2001. Page D5 states that the Bank of America Plaza has 9 floors, however, the Bank of America Plaza has 16 floors.

*Bank One Building was originally known as the Consolidated Bank of Tucson.  The building was bought by Valley National Bank in 1935. It was the first skyscraper built in Tucson.
