Description
- Architect: Harrison & Abramovitz

- The rocket shaped spire was meant to be a focal point for Downtown Dallas and attract customers. Plans originally called for a replica of the Statue of Liberty to stand atop the building.

- Tallest building in Dallas from 1954 to 1959, surpassed by the Southland Center (Sheraton Dallas Hotel) this however, is not counting the spire.
- Once one of the must sucessful office projects in Dallas, the Republic Center Tower I has since been vacated, Gables Residential purchased the building in 2003 and is converting it into residences.
