The Wilco Building is a high rise in downtown Midland, Texas. At 308 feet (94 m) tall and 22 floors, it is the second-tallest building in the city after the Bank of America Building. For many years, the Wilco Building was the tallest building between Fort Worth and Phoenix until the Bank of America Building was constructed. The Bank of America Building is now said to be the tallest building between Fort Worth and Phoenix. In 1985, the Wilco Building underwent some renovations. It is one of the iconic images of the Midland downtown skyline.
