What’s the Tallest Building in Your State?

The Westin Virginia Beach Town Center building surpassed Richmond’s Monroe Tower as Virginia’s tallest building in 2007.

I love lists like this. When I was a kid, leisure time for me was reading through almanacs, world record books, and “top ten lists”-type books (and juggling of course).

I found it amazing that the tallest building in Vermont is only 124 feet tall. Many cities in America have plenty of buildings at that height or taller. The tallest in my state (Virginia) is The Westin in Virginia Beach at 508 feet high. Check out the article from weather.com to see the tallest building in your state:
